I Actually Like Working Out!!
Friday, August 17, 2012
The scale's not moving. And right at this moment, I don't care. I'm going to forget about it for a bit.
I can work out. That's exciting. After my surgery, when I finally got the energy to exercise, it seemed like anything that raised my heart rate, also triggered migraine headaches. So I stuck to walking at a moderate, non-heart rate raising pace. But I wanted to sweat. To feel the pain of sore muscles. To feel the rush as endorphins rushed through my body. I CRAVED exercise. I thought about all the intense, sweat breaking exercise I wanted to do. It was really like a food craving.
Yesterday, I walked on the treadmill, and I added 30 second bursts of jogging. I was sweating. I was breathing hard. I did not get a migraine.
Today, I went for a 30 minute bike ride. I was breathing hard. (I wasn't sweating, partially because it was 8 PM and there was a nice cool breeze). I don't have a migraine.
God is good. =D
