Be Miserable or Motivated - It's Your Choice.
Got a great workout in this evening!! Did a few things a lil different this evening - I jogged/walked around the lake, did bench step-ups (20 each leg), then did lunges up Windmill hill! That got the heart rate up!!! I love this town's park, lake and walking trails - it's so peaceful and pretty!
I'm still motivated to get into better shape!! There are so many benefits of exercise - other than the "high" you get from the exercise itself -
- helps controls weight
- as odd as it sounds it boosts energy (so weird that by DOING more you feel better and have MORE energy)
- helps you sleep
- reduces stress/anxiety
- boosts confidence
- sharpens your focus
- get more done
- need I go on..... probably not.
It has so many benefits - why don't we all exercise more? I know it's hard...if it were easy everyone would be doing it! The hardest part is getting started - as Nike says "JUST DO IT". Don't think about - JUST DO IT! If you think about it - you WILL talk yourself out of it and find every excuse there is!
I'm leaving for a business trip on Saturday, will be back late Tuesday night... will be wiped out on Wednesday so I hope to get back to on track Thursday.
