Unexpected benefits of getting healthy :-)

Monday, April 28, 2014

Good day all!
So, I was just thinking about some amazing unexpected side benefits of getting healthy that I've been experiencing. First of all, let me tell you that about eight weeks ago, our (me and my hubby) idea of a relaxing weekend consisted of a case of beer and lounging around the house watching tv and playing on our computers (in separate rooms, mind you!). About two weeks ago, my husband looked at me and said "You realize that we've done more running around on the weekends over the last few weeks than we've done in YEARS!". And he was right. Without evening noticing it, we've had so much more energy that we've been venturing out on weekends and being active! In fact, yesterday, we walked the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time ever. 3.4 miles and we are not at all sore today! Yay for us, right? So, we are enjoying movement filled weekends and it all happened so quickly and without our noticing that now it seems natural to plan outings each weekend! Next weekend we are going to tackle the new pedestrian walkway on the Bay Bridge (8 miles!). Thank you Spark for igniting our flames!!

    That is SO great! I love that your husband stepping it up with you. It is always nicer to walk with a companion and you are challenging yourselves too! Enjoy!
