Sweating out the blues

Friday, May 09, 2014

The last few days have been tough and I’m not a cry baby. My husband tells me I’m strong. Who else would expect to be gardening after having dental surgery?

I don’t think of myself like that, obviously, and I just push on, doing what needs to be done, and then go to the next thing without really thinking. Isn't that what everyone does??
I think I get this from my Dad, who worked so hard he didn’t even notice a slight heart attack.

Today I was blue, sad, and glum. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, and overeating, I went to the gym and worked out with my trainer. He had me sweating and feeling better before I knew it! I hope the endorphins stay with me all day.

Sweat has so many benefits:

Improves circulation
Accelerates metabolism
Boosts the immune system
Relaxes body & mind
Great stress relief
Helps body release toxins
And many more

Today’s workout (4 sets of these)
Rope slams up and down and side to side
Side Squats on Bosu with medicine ball
Squat – figure eights with kettlebell
Row with weighted bar

(2 sets of these)
Assisted Pull ups
Bicep Curls
Dumb bell rows
Squat and bounce medicine ball off wall and catch.

Start and finish with treadmill.

I am glad that I was able to get myself moving today. I definitely feel better now than I did earlier today.

    You certainly have been feeling the many bounces of real life experiences and you continue to meet them head on. You cannot avoid them so meet them head on. Keep smiling and you will continue to be equal to the task.

    emoticon emoticon Outstanding job pulling yourself up! I think some people would curl up and read or sleep. Way to put in the effort to make yourself feel better!
