    Day 36 of 100 Reasons Why:

    Endorphins are no joke.

    I never thought I’d be one to wake up at 4am for a workout. I laughed to myself as I saw my local cross-fitters jogging up and down my road dragging tires behind them on Thanksgiving morning and secretly hated anyone who shared a gym story or post workout selfie. But once I started hitting the gym regularly I’ve come to realize the amazing mood I find myself in as I drive home, minivan windows open, breeze blowing my hair, 90’s tunes cranking. The upswing in my mood after a workout is consistent. If I’m in a bad mood, I’ll go to the gym and feel 100% better afterwards. WHATTTT?! I know health junkies always talked about exercise being the cheapest form of antidepressant but I just figured all those tofu burgers and alfalfa sprouts had gone to their heads and addled their brains. But now I think they may have been on to something all along...

    I still won’t eat tofu 🤢 but endorphins are REAL and they are no joke!!

    @meraki6 I’m proud, too! I find that I walk around with just a slight pep in my step and I hold my head just a little higher when I’m making efforts to improve my health. Even if I don’t talk about it to everyone I see, I feel like maybe they can sense something different about me. And that motivates me!

    Day 41 of 100 Reasons Why:

    To set an example to my children that even when something is hard or maybe even seems impossible (like losing 165 lbs) that if you have patience, perseverance and work hard you can make ANYTHING happen!
