If you’ve read my blog lately, you know that I’m going through a tumultuous time right now. My emotions are running high so I’ve been trying to focus on things I can actually control like working out.
If you workout regularly then I don’t need to tell how how good exercise can be for relieving tension, stress and worry. I usually find myself confident and energized after working out which makes me feel happier, stronger and more capable. Working out is an amazing way to feel instantly good about yourself.
I skipped the elliptical today and did 20 laps in the pool because I’ve been in pain since Monday morning. I don’t mean that I was sore..I’m quite accustomed to that. I mean, part of my body seriously hurts today. I won’t go into detail, but I think if I skip the elliptical machine for one more day it will be better. I’ll just swim again because it’s my new favorite thing. 🙂
One thing that I’ve tried to remember through these tough times is that life goes on either way. There will never be a perfect time to lose weight. Each of us, as individuals, have the opportunity to change right now regardless of our circumstances!
I can’t change the past or predict the future, but I do have the power to make good choices in the present. So stresses and heartache aside, I will continue to eat properly, drink water, increase my heart rate and burn calories because these choices are mine to make. And I’m going to keep working to improve myself inside and out because I am worth the effort.
