I didn't want to work out. I wanted to sit on my couch and eat chocolate stuffed oreos. My week has been exhausting and will continue to be exhausting. I was exhausted just thinking about it. I committed to ten minutes. I needed to strength train. I needed it.
Ten minutes with Jillian turned into 20 and 30 because you just don't tell Jillian no. I finished. Cardio and a leg strength workout I could be proud of.
I've decided that the most blissful feeling is that moment of cool down after a work out. For me it is lying on my floor, dripping in sweat, feeling my body being strong and tired, knowing I have accomplished something worthwhile.
I sweat for me. I sweat because it makes me feel alive and powerful. No matter how tired I think I am, I can put in the effort to make my body stronger.
