Addicted to pain?

So I did this Backyard Boot Camp type work out yesterday. It was awesome cause it challenged me and I like to be challenged  when I work out, cause I get bored easily, I have worked out every day for 2 years after all.  Well it was a challenge, I am super sore, but I loved it. I got to do things like jumping over hurdles, slamming a sledge hammer into a giant tire, kick/boxing with a sparring partner, doing squats and lunges on a Bozu Ball, lots of other things too, but that's what stood out the most.  I am sore, but after that I came home I went swimming, then later on that day I went for a walk after dinner with Jack.  Today I woke up so stiff and sore, but I forced myself to get up and work out, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical and I played just dance and the Wii fit with Jack, then I'm gonna lay out and get some sun, then I might roller blade.  I went from being someone who was addicted to tv shows to someone who is addicted to working out. since the DVR was invented I can do both, I am not a slave to my tv anymore, I don't have to be home at a certain time to catch a certain show.  So, I get to run around and play with my kid and get exercise and not be a couch potato.  I think my life is pretty good. This is my idea of playing outside on a beautiful day.
This is Jack's idea of playing outside, he is pouting cause the ipad battery just died.  Yes I know I have my work cut out for me with him, but he is watching less tv and playing baseball now.
