Working Out with Jillian

It’s now been three months of steady (3-4 days a week) exercising for me; mostly taking place in the mornings.  I KNOW.  I didn’t think I could do it either. I’m now officially in the stage where it’s just a part of my week and I don’t really complain about it.  Okay, sometimes I complain about it.  But most times I just wake up, squeeze into a sports bra and go. ...more

Running

Earlier I told you my relationship with exercise is volatile. I love it. I hate it. I mask the hate by finding excuses not to do it. But when I love it I can’t stop talking about it.
