Why I exercise

Running, biking and swimming with Tucker last night was SO MUCH FUN, although swimming is amazingly difficult, which is why I intend to do more of it in the near future! But I loved how I could connect with my kid through play, and that's one of the main reasons I exercise. Some might think that "how you look" would be at the top of anyone's list for why they exercise. Actually there are many reasons why I stay active, and vanity is probably at the very bottom of the list. Here, in order, are the reasons why I stay active:

1. To keep my emotions and moods on an even keel.
2. So I can eat a lot of food. :)
3. To feel confident and sexy with my husband.
4. So I can play and move without the restrictions that can come with age.

Anyone else want to chime in on why you do what you do???

I have never been about "how you look". Take who I am inside...that is what matters most to me.

I workout to stay young, keep my bones strong, and yes, if you exersise you feel oh so sexy ;)
