Thank you for Maya Angelou's quote Anna.
It reminds me that it works both ways though because stigma has been the hardest thing for me to deal with.
Working up to running!

Phaleron, excellent news....

I've been working out regularly and plan to start ice skating soon so I can join a men's "C" league ice hockey team later this summer. Working out rocks, also watching what I eat, substituting lean meats and veggies instead of burgers, pizza and such. Good luck to all and keep up the exercise....

A lingering foot injury is keeping me from running so I have been concentrating on weights.

Still at the fitness... just in a different way!

Two hour workout in gym, weekend workouts really help give me a focus and a healthy distraction. Sometimes its hard to sort out all the thoughts and feelings going on in my mind and exercise gives me a bit of a break from this. Its just good and almost restful to just concentrate on something physical for a while and yep those endorphines being released do help

Went out for a five mile run today, it was nice, I liked it.

I hope my foot doesn't act up again... but I've been working out in the weight room regularly since I haven't been running, so all is not lost.

Thanks for keeping this thread going Tommy, I check in and read once in awhile, it keeps me inspired.

I've been sorta lazy since we moved, busy unpacking so I haven't stepped on the elliptical in over a month. I've lost 22lbs. on Weight Watchers though and still trying to lose 4 more. Dropped from a 36 waist down to a 34, that was my weight when I came into recovery. I'd like to be able to fit into a 32.

I've been trying to take walks before I go to bed. Keeps the metabolism fire burning, and I'm sure the dog likes the change of scenery

I use to run regularly and am looking forward to losing weight to be able to again. I am starting by going to the gym and walking to gradually build up again.

Planning a cancer run/walk in May...this is motivating me

First time on this thread. Used to be totally into fitness before booze got the best parts of me. Now I'm back and training...for about a month now.

Walking (not running yet) 5-6 miles a day...weights 3 times a week, eating right with the help of my lovely wife. We're both down some good lbs and feeling better, ramping up to the 'old' me.

Good thread folks.

Still at the gym 5 days a week followed by an hour walk.
The time I spent drinking I now spend working on my body and heart.
Fitness is the number one factor in my quitting the booze.
