This post really resonates with me. I agree with so many of the points, it practically speaks my mind.

My exercise goals was never really to lose weight but to gain strength. That goal really paid off when I felt so much stronger to do things which I thought I would not be able to do. I realize using the excuse of being a girl so I do not have the same strength as a guy is so limiting to oneself. By being stronger I saw myself doing things which I do not normally do, like archery, pistol shooting, wakeboarding and lifting. It is empowering to feel strong. Plus that adrenaline rush after running is like a natural high, who needs drugs.

No matter how many times I go out to the mountains or go hiking near the river, I never cease to be amaze by the beauty of nature. It reminds me that God created this stunner and brings me closer to him.
