Exercise bliss!!!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Most of you know by now that I'd been sick for well over a week & it started with a stinky, heavily pollinated plant in my office at work. First off was the killer sinus infection, then "chest goop" as I call it. Boooo to asthma!! It turns everything into "chest goop."

Soooooo, yesterday was my first time at the gym in a week & a half. emoticon I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I was actually a bit jittery as I changed from my work clothes to my workout clothes. I was emoticon from ear to ear.

When I got on that first machine . . . man . . . total bliss!! I felt STRONG emoticon. My muscles had quite a break & they were ready to rock & roll!!!

After my workout was done, I could almost hear my body singing the Hallelujah Chorus!!

No kidding!!! Never in a million years did I think I'd crave exercise like that. I've come to depend on it as my major stress relief & mood booster. Try it!!! I think you'll see what I mean. It might take you a few months to start the "craving" part, but if you keep at it, the craving WILL come. Our bodies were made to move!!

Use it or lose it!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Glad you are feeling better and finally made it back to the gym. I look forward to the day when I miss my exercise like that. I know its possible, I just need to keep at it.

    So happy you were up to working out again. I know how good that had to feel. I love the fact that you have been missing your workouts. It means they are here to stay. Two thumbs up.

    Great reminder of how we (or at least some of us) have progressed - going from dread of exercise to excited anticipation. Glad you are feeling better.

I understand the craving for exercise and movement just be careful as sometimes you can over do it when that happens.
I know that our bodies were made to stay active and enjoy life.
Have a blessed journey to better health today

    Isn't it amazing how much we've changed? All those little things really did add up and become an important part of our lives!

Mean ol' plant. What a rude thing to do making you sick.
