Knock Me Over With A Feather

Yesterday after I finished posting, I did indeed go for a long, vigorous walk. I put on my iPod and queued up Fat 2 Fit radio #78. I almost fell over when I heard my name and my blog in my ears! Awhile back I made mention of Fat 2 Fit in my Retraining the Fat Brain post. The Fat 2 Fit guys must have found that post and decided to mention it in their most recent podcast. This is very exciting because I LOVE that podcast (even though they did mispronounce my name.) If you haven't started listening give it a try. Russ and Jeff wade through all the hype of the weight loss industry and present thoughtful and sane health, fitness and weight loss information. This podcast is a great companion on walks and workouts.

Another knock me over moment occurred during my Sunday walk. I realized that with each walk and workout I hate exercise a little bit less and start to find the joy in it a bit more. I've decided to embrace that joy. Watching my fitness increase has been pretty great, my legs are getting faster, my arms and my core are getting stronger. I can even wear high-heeled shoes now because my balance has improved so much through strength training. That's a huge deal for this klutz who in the past would risk a broken ankle if the shoe was more than an inch off the ground. That's reason enough for me to carry on. Here's a link to a great article with 21 other powerful reasons to exercise. Give it a read and get moving.
