I've never been much of the work out type. I got exercise in high school because I was into cycling, and I got a little in college from volleyball the years that I was playing. But honestly, I have no idea how to work out.
Cath talked me into a little DDR tonight, and honestly I felt like I needed it. I always know I'm going to feel better afterward, I just have such a hard time getting started. It might not be the best form of exercise ever, but it helped me a lot last year. Without volleyball this spring, I'll need to stay active.
After DDR, Cath put in a workout DVD, and I'm blown away at the shape this woman is in. If you look close, she's probably in her 40's, but her body is in amazing shape. I'm sure some of it is just good genes, but wow.
Even though I don't take as much action as I'd like, I feel really good about the awareness I have about my body compared to 18 months ago. Amazing what a few traumatic life experiences will do for you. A lot of it is just attitude. I used to think, "It sucks that I can't just get by on eating crap and sitting on my ass," but I'm slowly being drawn into the feeling the afterglow offers.
