Working up a sweat.

Yesterday I finally dragged myself to the gym.  I did not want to be there, but it had been two weeks since I exercised, and I was starting to feel it.  Now that things have started to settle down I knew that I had to get back at it.    I was feeling so lazy, that I even took the elevator up to the third floor where the elliptical machines are.  REALLY.

Well, I dragged most of the workout, but I have to say I felt amazing afterward.  I was thrilled that I had finally gotten off my butt and gotten back at it.  Okay I haven't exactly been sitting around on my butt, but it felt great to just take some time to take care of myself.

I guess what I'm saying is, if it has been a while since you've worked up a sweat, just do it.  You will feel better afterward.  Sometimes I think that mental hurdle is much harder than the actual physical one.  So get out there and get moving.  Your body will say thank you!


  1. I needed 2 hear that. Lately I have been looking for any excuse to not work out. It has been a weird catch-22 for me. I need 2 get yesterday.

  2. I needed to hear that too, thanks for getting me off my butt right away :)

  3. There have been times when I was feeling bad after tough workouts and was unable to follow my training regime. That was not what I was planning to do when I've started going to the gym :) My trainer has really helped me by telling a lot about the importance of propoer nutrition and by giving advices on how to improve it. I have also learned many useful tips at Now I know that my body needs special support before workouts, as well as after them. It helps muscles to be more responsive to highly intensive workouts, and releaves post-workout soreness.
