Great article Leonie.. thanks for passing it on. I don't surf the web much for this so really appreciate these things.

Hey there is the Jazzercise lady!!

Loved this quote by Kathy Smith-- That is just how I feel. And when I dont' work out a day(or longer)I feel like a deflated soggy balooon.. lol

Most helpful lesson she has learned about staying in shape: "Exercise for me is like a helium balloon: It lifts my spirits and attitude and makes me feel so much younger than my age. It gets me going in the morning, keeps me focused and takes the edge off if I'm feeling tense. Also, I've learned that staying in shape is much easier than getting in shape." -Cathy Smith

I definitely aree with you ( and kathy) - working out changes my mood and energy level. Working out and prayer are non negotiables in my life! lol!
