Steps


I still hate exercise.  But I still make myself do it, because I know how much better I feel when I do.  Exercise helps my blood sugars, my mood, and my overall health.  I do it because I know I need to.  Not because I want to.



However, getting exercise in has become easier over the past few weeks.  Josh joined a fitness challenge at work.  He has a steps goal for every day.  So we've both been making a point to get more activity in.

Fun socks make exercise more fun.

Now, instead of immediately sitting down in front of the TV after dinner, we go for a walk first.  Gotta get those steps in!  I still walk with my mom several days a week, but now Josh comes too.  Walking our little legs off! (Not really, but you get the idea).

I am so very proud of him.  And of myself.  We're being active together.  And exercising with someone you love is so much better than doing it by yourself.

  1. I agree . . . . on all of this. I hate exercise too. But I know how important it is. And when I have Pete with me on a run? So. Much. Better. Keep up the good work - to you and to Josh!
