When I exercise, I feel...

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


I feel so Empowered that I can do something about me! I feel empowered that there IS something I can do to be healthy and fit. I feel empowered to not only work on my weight issues and health, but on many other areas of my life.

I feel Energized! I have energy that I haven't seen in years! I feel lighter in spirit as well as my weight and that has helped me get through each day looking forward to the next.
This energy has helped me to keep up with the many challenges and trials of raising 5 kids 3 with special needs and one with a serious medical illness that is incurable while my dear husband works 7 days a week to make end meet. Oh, trust me, we feel very blessed and wouldn't change a thing!

I feel so very Excited! I have always attacked life with a positive attitude and awakened each morning with one question...What kind of day will I make this? GOOD, GREAT, AWESOME!
But now I am excited! Very excited to not only DO this, but FEEL it too!

This may seem impossible or overly dramatic, but I tell you even when I do 30 minutes on the treadmill interval training or 30 minutes of strength training in either a hot humid sweaty garage OR a freezing cold unheated garage I feel so empowered given the energy to really be excited about exercise and weight loss.
This is actually FUN!

I wish everyone the very best on their healthy lifestyle journey! I hope you all can feel the blessings in your life right in front of you!

My best to all, Cathy
