I thought this was a riot!! If we had an emoticon for ROFL, I'd be using it.
I can't say that I've always loved exercise, but I've never really hated it (except when I was in high school). I think I hated it so much back then because: (1) I always had gym class right after lunch (ugh! I won't go into details) & (2) I had exercise induced asthma & didn't know it. After the coach would make us run a mile, I couldn't breathe well for a couple of hours. I was not officially diagnosed until about 5 years ago.
Exercise is my stress relief & mood booster. I joke around that it keeps me from killing people (which I'd NEVER do -- kill people, that is), but I always get a good laugh when I say that.
The other cool thing about going to the gym is:
Oh yeah, Baby!! Torch those calories.
Yesterday was a bad, bad day for me. As soon as my alarm went off, I was up & at 'em, but just when I was getting ready to hit the "go" button on my coffee pot, the power went out. ::sigh:: Thankfully, the power came back on 1/2 an hour later & I was able to get my morning cup of java. But then I showed up to the carpool lot to meet my carpool . . . & none of my folks showed up!!! I called & called, but they didn't answer their cellphones. Power out? Overslept? Who knows? But I had driven the day before & wasn't expecting to drive, so I had no gasoline in my car. ::double sigh::
So, I go get gas & make my way to work. Can't ride in the carpool lane because I don't have enough people, so I was late for work. ::triple sigh:: So, what do you do when you're late for work? Leave early!!!
I really wanted to go to the gym, so it wasn't a huge sacrifice for me to take an hour of leave so I could still go. I took all my frustrations out on the machines & had an awesome workout. By the time I got home, I was in a fantastic mood & I had burned a bunch of calories. Not a bad deal.
So, don't enter the fitness protection program. You'll feel so much better if you "Just Do It!" ~ Nike ~ (Exercise, that is).
Blessings to you!!
