  1. I am a “chiller” by nature as well. It took me five (5) years of consistent exercise to begin to enjoy it–now I can’t imagine not working out at least a few times a week–though I am not quite the badass you are; kudos to you for “just doing it.”

    I am at where you were at the beginning. Too much chilling, not enough activity. Your story is inspiring, maybe someday I can be more than a lump on the couch eating cookies. I hope to eventually eat cookies outside. Possibly while walking. Slowly.

    I was lucky enough to do the Mudder with Meredith – and other friends from our Crossfit – yesterday, and she’s everything her post says she is, and more. She’s funny, gracious, and inspiring. Good job, Meredith! No muumuus in your future, for sure.

    That is an amazing journey! Woot for you! I have always been the tall, skinny girl, but that doesn’t mean I was in good shape. After I was done having kids, I finally got interested in fitness. Better late than never.

    Thank you everyone – this is an ongoing journey and deciding to exercise is an everyday mental challenge.

    And Tom – it was great doing the Mudder with you and I look forward to facing new challenges with you! XXOO

    Hey, Meredith / Jocelyn! What is the title of your blog? I would like to visit you and read more!

      Hi Kate – thank you! My blog has been ignored in quite a while. Maybe I will dust it off and start writing again! The best part about writing is it doesn’t involve a lot of sweat! 🙂

    I think I needed to read this. I have been putting off doing something about my “shape”/out-of-shape for a long time. Now I have an artificial knee and it is even more of an excuse. So this is now on my to-do list…find a trainer to work with old, fat, out of shape ladies with artificial knees. It may take a while.

      Awesome! start slow, build up to it, and make no excuses. just be sure to bring a vomit bucket as needed and don’t forget to drink water! 🙂
