This picture is so accurate, it is scary! Full disclosure: I sweat worse than three men combined. I’m serious, it is a serious problem. I am so happy I’m married. I know the guys at the gym are seriously turned off by what they see when I’m in their area!

It is all going to be worth it though when my legs look like this! Hello, inspiration!!
