My oldest told me, again, that I'm addicted to exercise. Maybe I am. I know it was really HARD not to run, do a dvd or take another walk last night. I will admit, it's my personality. Different addictions do run in my family. Alcoholism, food and exercise addiction can be found.
Although I've never had a long term addiction, I suppose I've fallen into the addiction category more than once in my life. College brought "the normal" drinking and food brought me here. I've always been one of those people that have to do everything 110% no matter what it is.
I think many of us are "addicted" to SparkPeople, too! I know I feel out of sorts if I don't log in and see what all of you are doing. I feel the "need" to log my nutrition and food. Maybe it's the fear of returning to my old self, but I really think it's the supportive community!
So if I am addicted to exercise and this community, I guess it's the "best of the addictions" that I could have. I do listen to my body or I should say that I am learning to listen to my body. I hope that if this is an addiction, that I can continue it, in moderation of course!
