It’s been 3 weeks since I last worked out. That’s way too long for me. I hate missing a couple days much less 3 weeks! I had good excuses though…really!
First, I was sick with a cold. I usually try to work out anyway when I’m sick but this cold was too much. Then I got a concussion. Funny enough, they sort of frown upon working out when you have a head injury. Wonder why…? Anyway, it actually took 2 weeks to get over that so there you go.
Last night, as I was setting the alarm clock, I was bound and determined to get back at it and work out the next morning. Oddly, when my alarm went off at 5:15 a.m., I was ready. I didn’t even think about not getting up or hitting snooze. I literally bounded out of bed (mostly because I didn’t want my alarm to wake the baby) and got to it.
Boy did it feel good. There is just no substitute for sweating and tiring out your muscles. I felt really great afterwards and have had so much more energy today than I had the last 2 weeks combined! Ha! I’ll probably sleep better tonight too.
Exercise has always invigorated me and that’s why I try not to stray too far from it. Even if I can only get in 30 minutes, I try to do something. Tomorrow will be a challenge because I have to drop Samson off at Doggie Day Care around 7:30 a.m. which means I’d have to get up at 5 or before if I want to get my workout in. I can do it though! Consistency is key!
