Disregard yesterday’s LAZY post (unless it applies to you today).
THANK YOU fellow bloggers and exercise enthusiasts for your encouragement yesterday!! I made it to Yoga last night and Circuit Training this morning. I can already feel the energy returning after last week’s gluttony, drunkenness and travel (that’s an exaggeration – but not really)
Now, only a few of you have visited my Workout Log page – how about some encouragement for hard work done!!??
Strong Mind, Strong Body!! page has a bit more about me and my goals.
Here’s the thing – I’m 46, a bit overweight, I love to eat, and have had two rounds of major depression in the last few years. I am not by any stretch of the imagination a fitness beast. I do work hard, though, to feel good and to have energy to get through the day. This is a discipline I have been working hard on for several years. I ABSOLUTELY can tell a difference in every part of my life if I am working out or not.
If you struggle with depression, or simple feel blah a lot of the time, if you want MORE energy, if you want to think more clearly, if you want to shed a few pounds, or add a few pounds of solid (as opposed to flab) then hit the gym, or the road, or the pool, or the dusty old treadmill in the basement, or try a class – many fitness instructors allow first timers to try a first class for free.
The first day is the hardest (except for every day after that). This is why it’s called a WORKout instead of a FUNout. It is WORK, but it has its benefits across the board!!
