3000

Today I completed my 3,000th day of exercising without missing a single day.  I have walked between 4-5 miles every day!  Today's workout was a five mile jog outside.  It was 32 degrees (0 Celcius) and I took my dog with me.  We had fun.  

To me, the exercise has of course great value for my health... I lost 115 pounds ( I used to weigh at one time ~290 pounds and now usually weigh ~ 175 pounds) , my BMI is normal, my resting pulse rate is now usually around 55.  My blood pressure is normal.  But, for me, the consistency of doing this EVERY day for 3,000 days without missing a day even when it was a holiday, or the weather was bad, or I was sick.... that is what I am most satisfied about in my efforts.  I relish bein a consistent person who does what he says, and at least in this way I feel good.

You've got to be feeling good with a pulse rate of 55!
