Strange Cravings

Monday, July 01, 2013

A real oddball thing happened to me today. I craved something I never have before......ready,.....wait for it....the medicine ball. Say what? I craved that 6 lb. ball of pudge. I wanted to throw it over my head, smash it into the floor, catch it, and do it all over again. and again. and again.

I have developed a strange fondness for this ball that makes my arms want to fall off after a normal routine. But it is doing something else, it is making me feel stronger, making me able to lift weights overhead more easily, and it is helping me to work off stress. I have a new found friend, in the medicine ball. It is hard to do, but it is growing on me. I am beginning to love exercise again.

Sweating is a beautiful thing. I can't wait to do more of it. :)

    Haha this made me laugh about throwing it and smashing it into the floor. Maybe I should get one of those instead of smashing my weights off the floor.... :)

    Yay for craving exercise! I recently bought a 6lb medicine ball myself, and I am really glad I did. They are really great for slams.

    Exercise is a good addiction! It's a love/hate relationship, isn't it? Never really tried that medicine all, though. So glad you're enjoying the sweat sessions! emoticon emoticon
