Working out when you really don't want to.

Friday, August 31, 2012

I got up this morning, and I had the urge to snarl. Growl. Bite someone.

Ok, not literally, but I defined "wrong side of the bed" this morning. And the odd part, nothing was wrong. I wasn't hurting, I didn't have stress, no fighting with family or spouse, all was fine in Knitcat's world.

Except that I could have gladly stomped something flat.

I managed not to snarl at Husband, (he most certainly didn't deserve it), got my 'go clothes' on, and started my walk. Had to put on some power walking music, the stuff with a strong, fast beat. This wasn't a day for me to walk at a sedate pace. I needed to sweat. And I did. I took out my snarly, nasty attitude on the road (and perhaps, a little on my feet, sadly... meh), but I did feel better.

Now I think I will only growl a little... emoticon

    Good way to get out that extra energy! And glad you didn't take it out on the hubby!

    That is great that you got your frustrations out by exercising! That is a very constructive way of getting rid of them!
    I am glad you felt better afterward.

    There you go! Taking it out on the road is much better than attacking loved one's anytime and it burns more calories. I've never had a time when I said to myself; "Gee, I sure do regret that walk I took". I remember that every time I feel myself talking myself out of walking or exercising now.

    I find that walking really improves my mood. The hardest part of the whole workout is starting it, for me.

    Good blog! And it does always feel better to exercise, even if you don't want to. Now aren't you glad you're back down to just a little growl?

    Best wishes!
