I woke up at 6 and headed to the gym. I must say that I am energized for the day. I almost didn’t do it because I went to bed late (I was waiting for people to get out of the bathroom (*no comment*)), so I ended up going to bed at 1AM. It was difficult to get up because I always want an extra 1/2 hour.
I love mornings when I can do that because exercise makes me feel great. My friend, Sam, told me that it makes him feel mellow so I guess it affects everyone differently… the only difference I see is that I eat so much now since I burn so much.
I was looking at myself in the mirror and for once I do think I am taking exercise a little overboard so I am going to focus on sculpting my body rather than burning calories (I have a fast metabolism especially since I am this age, weight and height).
When I exercise I do miss my brother a lot, he was really good about staying fit. I started writing some things about him today because he has been on my mind more than ever lately. I am starting this journey to learn about him. Its funny how you really never know someone unless you have other people’s perspectives. For example, i didn’t know what his nickname meant. He told me to call him that the time I visited St. Croix after I started college. I remember he told me some of his philosophies. I admired him because he was so smart! I asked him how he knew what he was telling me about and he told me about the books he read. I was thoroughly impressed. He must have been 16. Anyway, So far the title is: Searching for my brother rightfully titled because it’s a journey of his life through others, especially the years that I’d been absent. I might place it on lulu. I still want to start the fund in his name.
