It's only in my mind

Before my kiddo and even a bit after I regularly exercised; had a gym membership and everything! But let's just say its been awhile (ahem *clears throat* 2 years) since I've been in the swing of regularly doing anything active. The last few days have been AWESOME. My mind had forgotten the joys of working up a good sweat and so I played right into my own headtrip of how exercise is yucky. Luckily my body remembered the joys and I'm on a much more pleasant headtrip.
I'm just returned from my first reintroduction to bike riding. Yeah, last time I rode - picture pigtails and gawky pre-adolescence...that long. I'm going to claim a major victory since I didn't fall down :D
If you knew me, or really spent 5 minutes in my company, you get the picture that I'm a touch on the...well, let's politely call it neurotic...side. Me being me, before I ever got on the bike, I was seeing the handlebars flying off, hitting a parked car and breaking my elbows (yes specifically my elbows) a dog chasing me, hitting a raccoon...the list goes on.. but nope, none of those things happened. It really was so.much.FUN! I was bummed I had to come home (I'm not equipped for night time riding)
I love when I get to replace the crazy with the positive in my mind!
