So I have been completely slacking on my workouts the past couple weeks. I like to blame any variety of things… pets, boyfriend, mother, work, alien abduction… you know how that goes. But yesterday, on McFatty Monday, I pushed through those distractions and forced myself to go to the gym after work. And, let me tell you, it did WONDERS for me!!
Turns out, all those specialists and workout obsessed professionals are not lying when they say that exercising gives you more energy and puts you in a better mood. For real, you ask? For real real, no play play.
I did an hour on the elliptical while watching Law and Order (I wish it had been SVU, but the 6 channels on the cardio equipment don’t offer many options… I had to make do). Then I got home and proceeded to do the dishes, clean the kitchen, take out the garbage, clean the litter box, and do laundry. What are the freaking odds?! I’m sure it helped that the sun decided to make an appearance, but I have no shame in putting all the credit on the workout.So, I am going to see if this miracle will occur two days in a row. I am going to see if I can handle a whole cycling class after work (am I the only one with an ass that literally swallows the bike seat in those spin classes?) and see if I can bust out some yard work once I get home. Or maybe create a spectacular dinner fit for a 5 star restaurant for me and my love… oh the possibilities are endless!!
