WTJ: Bring This Book in the Shower with You

Eventually it had to come to this.

Part of my whole journey toward living a fuller, happier life has reached that moment that I had been dreading.
It's time to not just take care of my inside, but to work out the outside too.

Enter: The Gym.

Truth be told, it's not nearly as scary a place as I thought. It turns out, I quite like it there. Granted, I'm only one week into my brand new membership, but I've been there nearly every day and haven't even complained once. Not even when I've woken up everyday this week with a new sore muscle. I just tell myself: "That means it's working."

AND, just as it might happen, the stationary bike (the one where you kind of sit back in a little seat and peddle -- Sort of like a banana bicycle), is a great place to get some reading done. I just peddle my heart out and before I know it, 1 hour, 45 minutes, 20-30 minutes has gone by, and I'm done with my cardio for the day!

But, the best part of all is that great feeling I get when I get back to the house and jump in the shower knowing I've done something super awesome for myself.

Today, Wreck This Journal joined me in celebrating my awesome morning workout.

It wasn't easy... And I'm still very sad at having ruined some completed pages, but isn't that the point? Maybe I'll feel better once the pages have dried.

In the meantime, I'll just feel happy with my healthier lifestyle.
