I wasn't, however, particularly athletic. Never played organized sports and didn't really do anything that caused me to sweat much until I joined the pom-pom squad in high school. I had the skinny "genes" so weight was never an issue, until I started having kids that is.
Once I entered college and I had to walk from my dorm to my classes multiple times in a day, I realized how out of shape I was. That's when the man who was to eventually become my husband entered the picture. We met in college and he was a 6' 4" mass of muscles because he had spent his high school years lifting weights and not pom-poms (thankfully!).
Truth be told, I would go to the weight room with him because I liked him and wanted to, you know, impress him with my enthusiasm if nothing else. Must have worked, because we got married after college and continued to go to the gym to work out, even though I never really embraced it.
