Here's the Deal
And here's what I've found: I am a grumpy little grumpster when I don't exercise. I'm tired, I don't want to eat healthy foods, I don't have any energy during the day, and all I want to do is NOT EXERCISE when I don't exercise. I hate that place. I hate, hate, hate being in that place.
So last week, I had a few really good workouts. A run or two with Maggie and an Xtend class that I was sore from for days. I felt amazing, happy, accomplished. Skinnier even, though I am sure I wasn't, but my body image changed - just like that.
Today, a long walk with Erin and a 75 minute yoga class. The moment I stepped out of the class, I felt refreshed, stronger, happier and more fulfilled. Ready to take on more.
So case and point: Exercise makes me happy. Thank you endorphins. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will not neglect you any longer.
