Working out is great for keeping in shape, maintaining weight, and even reducing stress. One of the things I love about it is how great I feel when I’m done. There’s this thought of, “I did that,” that comes to my mind when I’m hot, sweaty and feeling a thrill of exhaustion. I don’t have enough room anywhere to do wheelbarrow but I can do what I think of as windshield wiper on my bed and I finally reached doing 18 if I only count in one direction and double that if I count doing it in the opposite direction separate. I even tried wheelbarrow again in the living room but that pesky couch always gets in my way. I did get farther on one side than the other but there is still the couch to deal with and my head simply won’t magically go through the barrier. Oh well, it’s still farther than I got the first time.
I really do love working out. It’s probably more than the fitness, more than the meeting the challenge, more than the physical goals and more than the toning up body; I think part of it is I always feel better after I do it—physically, mentally, emotionally.
Perhaps working out is my therapist. It’s super hard to think about the things going wrong when I’m pushing the workout harder than I did before. It’s like saying no matter what is going on outside of you, sometimes inside of you, you can make this happen. You can scale up and make it even if you can’t save the world.
Yeah; I love working out. Call it my therapist, call it my saving grace, call it whatever you want; I just know I love it.
Whatever your workout routine and goals are, have fun, stay safe and as always…
