Tonight I met my husband at the gym after work. I left earlier than usual because I'm trying to continue on my quest to find balance. Work-a-holism......BAD........
..Exercise........GOOD. I haven't been to the gym in several years, but my husband gifted me with a new membership to join him during the winter and standard time (early dark). I used the treadmill and, to my surprise, all my road running (jogging) has made a difference in my fitness. (Well, I wasn't terribly surprised.) I have never been able to RUN on the treadmill, but tonight I RAN 2 miles at 5.0-5.5 miles an hour. I walked a few intervals to do my usual "body check", but then picked it up and continued running.
All these small bits of progress are adding up to a new found confidence in my ability to keep getting more fit and healthy.
If I can do it, trust me, anyone can.
