With as much as I blog fitness and talk about exercising and what I am doing when and how it might seem like I totally love to workout. NOT!! With all I deal with on a day to day basis exercising is something that I have to fight to find time to do and am not always looking forward to it.
But, once I set my mind to it and start, I actually have a hard time stopping and am bummed out and upset when I have to end my workout to get ready for work or whatever else might be pulling me away that day.
Reason being ~ When one is working out it starts a natural high happening in the body. Chemicals called endorphins produce what is called a “runner’s high”. Exercise floods the brain with endorphins which help to relieve pain, enhance mood and relieve stress. ~ Seriously!!
Ever notice how pumped you feel after a workout? Do you feel good, mood is better, head is clearer and you are energized. Well that is why! Or even after a good workout or a good yoga routine you even can feel relaxed. Strange… but an amazing feeling!
If you can make time for yourself to workout every day, even if only for 30 minutes you will start to see changes in mood and confidence. When you are working out you are getting stronger and getting stronger will make you more confident and make your body love you even more! Combines with a good diet you will see your body change over time and that is just one more reason to keep up with exercise.
So, yes exercise bites…. But in the end when you are strong, confident and doing the body good you will be happy you didn’t just sit on that couch watching tv
So get off that couch/chair and join me for a 90 Day Challenge. Combine fitness with healthy eating and ViSalus and make today the first day of the rest of your life.
