Feeling a difference already

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I'm proud to say that I now have 6 small rocks lined up on my windowsill in the kitchen. I got back from workout number 6 tired, but feeling peppy (can you have both of those things at the same time? I can!)

I've gone to a new, farther park for the past 2 days that's more 'hilly'. With 20-odd pound baby on my back, it makes for a more intense walk. Too bad it was so cold! Did 35 instead of 45 minutes just so I could get the baby back into the car. Even bundled the poor girl had icy hands.

As I was walking I remembered talking with my husband a couple of years ago (when I was exercising regularly) and he complimented me on my body's ability to gain muscle quickly and change shape into what I wanted. I remembered that today when I was huffing and puffing up a hill... but thinking that it was slightly easier today than it was yesterday.

I believe in a God who knows and loves me. I know that he has given me this body and it's abilities for a reason. If I keep my end of the bargain, by making good food choices and exercising - He will keep his through this gift of this wonderful, useful body. Not only that, but I'm a better wife and mom and friend when I do these things. My mind is clearer, I'm happier.

All good, valid reasons to keep going.
