Exercise takes on a whole new meaning...

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

I didn't exercise for a few days last week for various "reasons". I say "reasons" because I know I can talk myself into or out of most things. When I minimize, justify, and/or rationalize (sometimes I use them all) I hope I can catch myself and put the brakes on. This doesn't always work. There are times (emotional upheaval) when it rarely works.

I exercised last night. It was a little more difficult because I was out of my groove. I felt so much lighter. My mood was better, I slept better, my body is happier, and I'm more positive. I exercised again at lunch today and WOO HOO! I feel like me again.

How did I ever function without exercise? Well, I'm assuming, please don't ask my family, I was not a joy to be around...ever. I love this stuff! After my exercise today, all I could think about was when I can do it some more.

Thank you Spark People Family for your support, your encouragement, your understanding, and your lack of judgment. I truly believe SP brings out the best in people and I am thankful.

    Yes, once you start feeling how wonderful exercise affects the body, you can't help but enjoy it. Thanks for your compliment on my blog.

    Thanks for being genuine and thanks for your support. I have to remember to exercise in the evenings, perhaps that will help me sleep better. That gives me ideas and hope.

    Keep up the great work!
