Today, I am thankful for sore muscles - a sign that my new exercise routine is working.
When it comes to getting fit, I believe in the no pain - no gain rule (I speak with some authority since I have a degree in Kinesiology from UCLA). So, I'm lifting weights regularly and adding jogging to my aerobics routine (T likes to run so jogging will be good for both of us). I'm hitting the heavy bag every other day and working my abs like there's no tomorrow. Pilates. Yes. Callanetics. Yes. Yoga. Yes.
The reason for this boost in activity? Well, it's a vanity thing. My 52nd birthday is next month, and I refuse to look or feel my age.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
