Endorphins are addictive

So, do you know what Endorphins have made me believe? That I can DO ANYTHING!

No, seriously.

Since I began working out three (just three!) days ago, I have:

1 - Worked harder and better.
2 - Started corresponding with friends and family who I haven't contacted in waaaaay too long.
3 - Started catching up on every news article known to man.
4 - Started commenting on blogs where I am a constant lurker.
5 - Thoroughly cleaned my room. And as a perpetual neat freak this has made me so happy.
6 - Started planning my older sister's baby shower in earnest.
7 - Have given up diet sodas and drank a helluva lot more water.
8 - Lost weight. Weird how that happens when you get off your ass and exercise.
9 - Had a desire to go out after work, when before I forced myself to attend meetings and other events.
10 - Started to enjoy everything more.

And there is more, so much more, but I bet I have already bored you.

Oh, gym, gym, gym. How I love thee. I have already begun counting the ways.

It's amazing what a little exercise will do. Although, I don't get up early to go to gym (as you well know, mornings are not my thing). But work is 8 blocks from the train and the scale already likes me better!

I'm so glad you are working out - for your heart, not your weight. Just promise you won't go all "nothing but salad and running three times a day" on me like you did in college! You got way too skinny!

I've been working out for two months now. I haven't gotten on the scales in a while, but I don't think I've lost any weight. It's kind of frustrating - it takes my body a long time to gain, but it also takes it even longer to lose. I must prevail!
