Off to a great start!

Not really.  Ha ha.  I already forgot to blog last week.  But it's a new week and I am blogging!  I have done several challenges with Stephanie and I occasionally beat myself up over falling out of the good habits I develop when I am on them.  When I do that I look at the big picture.  When I was a teenager or a college kid I almost never exercised.  I hated doing stuff that even involved exercising.  Now, during what I consider a "bad week," I exercise at least once or twice during that week for an hour at a time.  That would have never happened ten years ago.  Now I am a runner!  I cycle!  I lift weights!  I go on walks, and not just to burn calories! I hike!  I went cross country skiing for fun!

Slowly but surely, being fit and eating healthy have become integral parts of my life that I have come to enjoy.  So, it's a new week, and I am going to celebrate the progress I have made over the last decade and not worry about how much I ate at Christmas!

    I remember cross country skiing with you as a teenager, I think we spent more time on the ground!
