I hate stairs. Partly because I'm a little afraid of falling and hurting myself (a little irrational but I did break a bone in my foot falling on stairs once).
And mostly I hate them because I get so winded and out of breath. Now, I can't avoid them completely but had been doing my best to avoid having to climb up more than one flight.
At work, there are 3 floors in the building but we have elevators so I almost always use those, even though many of my co-workers use the steps. Yesterday, when I walked out of a meeting, I was in the middle of a conversation with some co-workers and they headed to the steps, so I went along with them. This was the first time I used the stairs go up both flights since I started my daily workouts at the beginning of September.
And when we got to the top, I got proof positive that the workouts are working - we were continuing our conversation and when we got to the top, I
was the one who was not winded and panting a little!!!
This is about losing weight but it's also about getting healthier and it was fantastic to see some actual proof that my body has gotten healthier.
