I like working out for the most part.

 

In Junior high and High school I was fairly active. I played tennis, ran track and cross country. I even played for my college tennis team for one semester!

 

So when Adam and I were first married, I worked out using my elliptical machine and some workout videos to do at home. We would fit in the occasional walk in the neighborhood. read more
