I was an over-exerciser.
I literally tracked my exercise daily and logged all the miles I ran for many years (one year I ran enough miles I could have run from WA to NEW York City) before finding the FASTer Way. I used to do 1-2 hours of cardio a day and while I still love a good cardio sweat session, it’s not the foundation of my workouts anymore. Although my opinion of how I look at exercise has changed drastically, going to the gym is something I do still love to do. For me, exercise is a stress reliever. It gives me a boost of energy. It makes me feel stronger. It makes me happier. Here is a picture of my enjoying a couple mile walk along the boardwalk in sunny San Diego.
