Hello! Well… I’ve been VERY ACTIVE with my exercise! I actually haven’t been to the gym running on the treadmill because I’ve been soooo into the Wii Fit… doing strength training, balance exercises and aerobics… it’s very very cool! I try to do the Wii thing in the morning and afternoon but yesterday was such a beautiful day that I also wanted to try running outside, it is hard because I have 2 girls, a 3 yr. and a 1 yr. old… I don’t have a double stroller, so my 3 yr. old would HAVE to “RUN” with me, I would really like to do this more often (or for a longer period of time) but with my girls having to be with me I just can’t! Anyway… yesterday I still went outside! and we had a great time! I ran 1 mile and my 3 yr. old was behind me walking… Of course I had to stop and run “on the same spot” many times so she could “catch up” with me… It was a “1 mile” trail but I know I ran “over a mile” because it took forever to end it! just from waiting for my little girl (who was ecstatic we were doing this together) I was so surprised to see that I could run the whole thing… Because 4 months ago I went to that same trail and I was out of breath just walking it!
So… here is where I ran:
But after that… I worked out 2 1/2 hours in the Wii… So… it was about 3 hours of exercise today! and I felt great! I had never actually ENJOYED exercising and I thought I never would! I’ve heard stories of people who said they “hated” working out and then they got so into it that they can’t live without it… I thought those were “tales” or things that only happened to other people… I also thought that they probably never hated exercising enough! LOL! but I can’t believe I am becoming one of those people! I AM LOVING this feeling! And I can’t get enough of it!
