I Feel Amazing!

I exercised today for the first time in a long time.  It sucked hugely while I was working out, and I hated almost every second of it (ok, it wasn’t THAT bad).  I’m very sure I will hate it even more when I wake up tomorrow morning (or is it the second day soreness that is the worst?).

But, I felt AMAZING the rest of the day!  I swear, I got more done today after exercising first thing, than I’ve accomplished in the past week combined.  I could literally feel my mood improving.  I felt the urge to be productive again.  Obstacles that seemed like show stoppers last week felt a little smaller today.

I was at the gym for barely over an hour total, that includes both changes (into and out of workout gear), showering, and finding equipment and space at a YMCA that I’ve never been to before.

I could not believe how different I felt today.  Why do I ever stop exercising?

Thank you to everyone that offered inspiration and advice – I put it to use today!  I’ll tweet ya from the gym as soon as I get there tomorrow.    I owe a special thanks to Ginger, who broke off a little slice of her time to give me a starting exercise plan.  Thanks G!

  4. That’s awesome! Good for you! Exercise has fallen off my radar, as usual, so thanks for reminding me that I *really* need to get off my tush and move a little…
    I hope the gym is equally good to you tomorrow 🙂

    Bit by bit. Just do as much as you can 🙂

  6. awesome-ness!
    I know that feeling too well…I don’t know why I stop …mentally I always suffer for it… as soon as I start again I do feel better too…my biggest problem is making myself the priority & making exercise time a habit NOT to break…
    love ya! mean it!

  7. Nice job, Scott! It’s good to get back in the groove.
    I actually got back to the gym after two weeks away, and it DID feel good to go back. (But it’s SO easy to stay away! I’m going to have to lean on you as inspiration. BabySparl is making me lazy!)

  8. Yah!!!!! I’m glad to hear that you are feeling great…. now if only you lived closer….. I would go an exercise with you… you could be my motivation to go! 🙂
    Keep up the great work.
