K and I have been talking a lot about fitness lately. Back in February, I was whining to my aunt about how bloated and out of shape I was, and she said some magic words to me. “Two miles a day, at least five days a week. Run, walk or crawl, it does not have to be pretty, but it does have to be two miles.” Even for as busy as my days are, I figured, sure, I can do two miles. At most, that’s 40 minutes (if walking 20 minute miles, which is not that fast). And you know what? Two miles a day is like a gateway drug. All of a sudden, I have been doing squats, crunches, and jogging! I do not do these things! But in just two months, I have noticed some huge changes, as have my coworkers and friends. So next time you are whining about not loving your body, or not liking how you feel, remember: two miles, at least five days a week. It is so worth it!
And for those of you feeling a little more enthusiastic -
