Addicted to fitness

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

So, I started eating better and exercising regularly back in late January. Since then, I have greatly improved my fitness level and have lost 32 lbs. I now run 5 miles at a time and can walk up stairs without being winded. I still have a way to go but I there is already a major improvement. A side effect I didn't expect was my newfound addiction to exercising. I feel out of sorts when I don't get my workout in or if I can't do it when I want to. I don't know if it's a bad thing, but it's keeping me motivated. For now I will keep it up and hopefully the motivation will continue. This is the longest I have ever kept up a life change like this. I am pretty proud of that.

    Congratulations on your accomplishments as you continue on your journey. I'm crabby if I miss a workout 2 days in a row, so I make it a habit not to allow it to happen that often. Keep up the great work!

    Me, too! I have traded one addiction (food) for exercise.

    Wednesdays are my rest days. Even though it bugs me, I know my body needs it.

    There nothing wrong with "being addicted" to exercise and feeling out of sorts when you don't do it. Only thing is balance. Your body does need days of rest. Allow your body to rest, renew and rebuild and never push yourself if you are injured.

Other than that, go for it!

    My son, Neal is 26 and 3 years ago new Year's he started Tony Horton's P90X and then he did P90x 2 and Insanity, etc. and he works out at the gym. He is 6'3" and he was 2403 but got down to 190# and now he is training for a bodybuilding show in November so he is up to 225#. So, yes, it can be addictive, as Jack LaLanne said "I hate to exercise, but I love the results."

My son loves the compliments. Like I tell him "Other men admire a man who is fit, even if they NEVER say a word to him about it." emoticon
