After a weekend without formal workouts, it felt really good to sweat again. I still don’t feel 100%, but I feel great about getting it done. And I was reminded how much my body craves purposeful movement. I was active over the weekend, but I didn’t exercise the way I usually do. I did, however, do crunches. I’m a few weeks into my goal of doing 101 crunches for 100 days, and I’m pretty pleased with myself. 😉
This weekend, I’m planning on rocking a couple of workouts with friends which is different for me. I’m thinking we’ll jog across the Brooklyn Bridge and into Brooklyn for a bit, and we also plan to do a 5k or 10k in Central Park with additional friends. I hope the weather cooperates because I’m really looking forward to it.
And next week, I’m flying out to see my family in Colorado which means we’ll enjoy longs walks through scenic spots in the mountains, jogging at the Garden of the Gods and days at the park. I’d like to rent a bike for the afternoon as well so I can soak up the nature. There’s just so much beauty to take in there.
Working out has been a regular part of my life for a couple of years now, but it feels good to recognize the changes that have occurred in me since beginning my journey. I remember how much I hated sweating and moving excessively, and I remember how hard it was to walk up a flight of stairs or around the block.
Life is different now, and I’m utterly thankful for that.
