Not sure why but tonight I was 'on fire' at the gym - super high level of energy and enthusiasm. Funny because I was betting that after cardio/step class I'd be throwing in the towel and heading home rather than taking on hot yoga sculpt in the super-heat...as today was a more than toasty day outside (for CA anyway - remember here at the beach it rarely gets into the 80s and humidity is quite low). Today was a bit uncomfortable even during my lunch hour walk.
But...somehow that spark within ignited even greater and I bolted out of step class with energy to burn. In fact the 3 pound hand weights I've been using seemed almost useless - I think it's time to step it up to 5 pounders as my muscle tone has improved and I'm not getting much of a challenge at all with the 3 pounders. Woo Hoo! Proof of progress!
Yeah! I'm trying to think what I ate differently or did differently to kick me up to this next level...but nothing comes to mind.
Guess I should just bask in the happy energetic feeling and hope it lasts! Endorphins have been the norm for a while now -- but this is even better. I'm loving it!! Stepper's high (vs runne'rs high) perhaps? Woo Hoo!! Happy Dance!!
I did 'Go For Greatness' in Step class...maybe that could be it??
