    Default Big Compliments for my Strength Routine

    So as most of you know I am on a regimented strength training routine. It is 3 days on and then a rest day. I have a home gym in my garage and work out at the same time every day. I see a lot of the same people on their way to work and what not. This morning one of the people who drive by daily (during weekdays only) stopped and told me, "I drive my daughter to work and see you working out everyday. I think what you do is totally cool!" LOL. Never thought that conversation would take place. I am sure they have seen me doing my weights and also running down the street with my weight gloves on. (I jog for 3 minutes between reps instead of just resting.) It put a smile on my face all day long.
    PS-I also have a guy friend who was inspired by my weight loss and began running. He has lost 40 lbs. It is nice to be an inspiration.

    That is such a cool story. Routine is the key isn't it. Really lovely of the person to stop and compliment you too. Often we are all too busy to think about doing something like that.
    How wonderful to be such an inspiration too.

    Thanks for sharing Christie.
    You truly are an inspiration.

    I need to start getting more strength training in, I'm so into hiking and biking that I forget about the weight part. You are inspiring me!

    Thanks everyone. I mean, I know people see me and understand what I am doing but never really thought they actually paid attention. I also have a ton of people who now waive at me because we see each other all the time. LOL.
