Exercise Makes Me Sore, But It's Worth It
The picture above illustrates our tendency to always want to take the easy way out, you know what I mean? For instance, I work on the fourth floor of my building. Instead of taking the stairs, I ride the elevator. I come up with every excuse in the book why I can't take the stairs; "I'm tired." "I'm carrying too much stuff" etc. And instead of parking the farthest away from the building, I scour the parking lot looking for the closest parking space! Pitiful, I know.
I lost 2 pounds this week! :)
The kids and I spent an hour at the high school track on Saturday and Sunday running/walking the track and bleachers. I know I've said this before, but it felt good to get moving again. I'm sore, but it's a good sore... it means I did something. Dylan has fun being our personal trainer. He's good at it too.
I'm going to sign Rachael and I up at Acxiom's fitness center tomorrow. It's a small place, but it has six treadmills, free weights, cable machines and an aerobic exercise area. Our plan is to do the treadmill on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and then to do weight training on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Saturdays we'll spend an hour running/walking the high school track and bleachers.
Wish you were here? It's gonna be fun!
