    Hello - I think the best advice I have ever gotten was - when you are tired, work-out and you won't feel tired anymore! Try it! - 12/25/2008   9:32:06 PM

    I have more energy when I work out. - 12/25/2008   8:34:32 PM
    I usually feel bored and exhausted after a work out. I have to do all my work outs at home since I can't really afford a gym and there aren't any within 15-20 of my home so it's crazy for me. I really need some good motivation for working out at home!! - 12/25/2008   8:29:56 PM

    i could use one of these THANKS SPARKPEOPLE - 12/25/2008   7:36:51 PM
    I feel very frustrated. I want to exercise but I am very obese and all the videos and shows are for people who can get on the floor, kick, etc. and I cannot do any of that. I wish someone would do a video for us mobility limited people who need some real basics to get started before we can "graduate" to even beginning stuff. - 12/25/2008   7:35:38 PM

    When I workout consistently I feel the adrenaline. I love that feeling. I feel proud to have completed a workout, and I love that moment when I know I'm finished and I feel great.

    Thanks SparkPeople! - 12/25/2008   7:32:23 PM

    I feel accomplished, proud, strong, and happy. Exercise makes me feel like I can do anything, especially during (or after!) workouts that were harder than normal or that I have never tried before. - 12/25/2008   6:49:17 PM
    I feel full of energy and ready to take on the world! - 12/25/2008   6:48:03 PM

    Happy Holiday to everyone. I read this whenever I can. Thanks for all the support. - 12/25/2008   6:32:46 PM

    I feel energized and relaxed when I exercise. For the most part I am a walker and supplement my program with a modified Pilates/yoga routine as part of my rehab. When i don't get in at least 15 minutes of movement I drag the rest of the day. - 12/25/2008   5:02:40 PM
    When I do exercise I feel so energized - ready to take on the world. It also improves my attitude! I've been wanting to learn Yoga to de-stress, but my gym's schedule conflicts with my work schedule. - 12/25/2008   4:47:57 PM

    When I work out, I sometimes have fun although I sometimes get too competitive on the wii fit. However, no matter what, once I have worked out, I always feel better physically and emotionally for the rest of the day! - 12/25/2008   3:43:42 PM

    When I exercise I usually feel pretty good afterwards, especially if it took a while to motivate me to go to the gym. :-) A few days later, I don't always feel great if I overwork my knee. - 12/25/2008   3:19:47 PM

    I feel powerful when I workout. Some days it's hard to get started, but once I get into it and once I've completed my workout, I'm reminded just how strong I am, and that I can be even stronger. - 12/25/2008   1:27:33 PM

    What a great Christmas giveaway! How do I feel after a workout? : Great!! Tired and also exhilerated. Don't know why it's so hard to get myself going. - 12/25/2008   1:01:12 PM

    I can't think of a more perfect gift. - 12/25/2008   12:49:30 PM
    I feel like a fog is lifting when I work out, some days slower than others. It is better than coffee, the high lasts longer and doesn't make me jittery. Any aches that cling to me after a new weight has been lifted are an invisible badge of honor in my battle against my lunchlady arms, badonkadonk butt, and saddlebags. In the end it leaves me feeling proud, until I get humbled and inspired by someone twice my age doing twice as much. - 12/25/2008   12:29:32 PM
    A good workout makes me feel both energized and relaxed! - 12/25/2008   12:20:31 PM
    I can feel like I don't want to exercise today and then I make myself go out and walk and it wakes me up and makes me feel so good I could just keep on going. I get to work everyday about one hour or so early and walk before it's time for me to report to work. I walk up hills and steps alot. I started back in August with full time exercise and logging everything I ate-1200 calorie a day. After 16 week I had lost 15 lbs. I feel so good. I plan to keep it up because I want to lose another 20 lbs and maintain at that weight. When I started in August I weighed 185, now I am at 170. For my height and bone structure, 145-150 is adequate for me. But if you want to feel refreshed and like a new person, keep up with the exercise, even if you don't feel like it. If weight loss and health and looking good is what you want, then you can be determined to go at it. It may take some time but going at it the right way can and will be a lasting habit. You will love yourself for it. I like the way I look right now and even more so after the rest of my goal is accomplished. I'm looking forward to it. Exercise does make the biggest difference in your well being. All of us are on to a happy and New Year! The best to each of us-we can do it!. - 12/25/2008   11:54:39 AM

    When I start exercising, I am tired and cranky. I usually have to put on a movie or listen to loud music when I exercise so I don't get bored. At the end of my workout, I feel awesome, energized, and very ready for the day. - 12/25/2008   11:37:50 AM
