Fitness 2012: A Giant Recap!

I decided to make health and fitness a priority for 2012.  People often ask those who have lost weight how they did it.  My answer to that question is always the same:  I made it a priority.  I sacrificed lunch breaks to squeeze in workouts.  I went on runs after the kids were in bed.  I got up at 4:40 AM many mornings to get a cardio session in before getting ready for work.  There were many days I didn't want to work out.  But I did it anyway, and always felt awesome afterwards, for having done it.

I kept track of each workout I did this past year, and have crunched the numbers for some really fun (in my opinion) facts and figures!

Woo hoo!  This was very fun to see, so I plan on tracking my exercises for 2013 as well.  Hats off to all who have resolved to get healthier in 2013.  It really does improve your life in so many ways.  I'd be a stressed mess without endorphins, and I must say, clothes shopping is way more fun these days, than it was a year ago!  Happy New Year, friends!
