As If I Needed A Reason...

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

It was raining yesterday. Now by that I mean I live in Washington state, and it was raining too hard for *me* to want to go out in it. That's pretty heavy rain. Also, I forgot a jacket, which might have something to do with it.

I remembered the jacket today, but the rain stopped.

But that's not the point. The point is, yesterday's rain prevented me from going on my daily walks, and I can't tell you how bad it threw off my entire day.

I felt more edgy, tired and unfocused yesterday afternoon than I have in the two weeks since I started my daily walks. I felt so tired that by the time I got home I could barely do half of my strength exercises and no cardio at all.

I knew I felt better after my walks, more energized, calmer and better able to get through the day, but I had no idea that missing just one day would throw me off to such a degree.

As if I needed another reason to keep up my walking, the fact that it daily makes me feel better, think clearer and gives me tons more energy is something I don't think even I can argue with!

Here's to my daily walks!

    Yay! Welcome to the life of the exercise junkie!

Go you! :D

I can certainly relate. If I do not get a significant amount of exercise every day, I feel really odd. I'm not sure how much of this is psychological, since I've been aiming for "mileage" every day since 2003, and of course dancing since 1971, but I feel I really need the exercise to keep me in balance.

I just wish the sun would come out a wee bit more often around here. :p
