I think I accidentally started a revolution...

not from my bed, but almost...
As an ex-scientist in the food industry with too many friends in the nutrition area I should have seen it coming: turns out, when you eat well and exercise, you have more energy, AH! who knew
For the past 2 weeks I have been increasingly feeling small changes: I use cleaning the flat as short 10 minute blasts of activity, I genuinely want healthy food more often than junk, my skin is glowing, and the scales have gntly but surely shown their support to my new routine.
But what I did not expect was to look forward to exercise.. I used to be a gym bunny at univeristy because the gym was literally 5 min walk from the house, so i would go to a class most day and also do weight training...but i am not sure i appreciated at the time how good it makes you feel (or maybe you become endorphin resistant after a while). Lately I had been feeling lethargic, too hot, too heavy, my thighs rub....you know the drill....but today as I sit here typing this BEFORE I have had a chance to get my exercise in, I feel fidgety, I want to get going, hey, I even joined the summer boot-camp.
It's almost like I have TOO MUCH energy, and can not think of how to burn it off (sadly I am still too heavy to run...it hurts...plus i could never get the breathing right)....very strange feeling....probably won't last, so I'll enjoy it while it's here.
Hope you have a fun, energy-filled day too!
