This Sparked Me!

It is so hard to get there, but I know from experience how great I feel once I am in the car, and how much better I feel when I am on my way home. It helps my mood so much.

    Just got back to going to the fitness center, and I feel better when I go. Not easy when the alarm goes off at 5:30 to leave the warm bed and go.

    I was fortunate enough to use a therapy pool last week to help my knees and a foot with severe arthritis. It was such a wonderful feeling to find a warm pool in a warm room, and being able to do the exercises that will help me feel better and move more easily.
I can't use the gym, but I imagine that having a good day at the gym is like enjoying the exercises at the pool. Lucky Us!

    Finally recovering from an UTI, so will do yoga on Tuesday and Body Pump on Wednesday. Have to be strong first, though...

    So right; however, although I know I will feel better after the fact; it just doesn't make it easier; I've heard that if you do it for several weeks; you may sort of look forward to it; don't know if I'll get there; emoticon for the inspiration to try!

    I always feel better and energized getting back to the gym and leaving with a smile on my face for being pro active...My biggest problem is consistency with such a jammed packed schedule..
