It's a new week and a new month, and I need an attitude adjustment towards my health.
Normally, I am VERY strict about exercise. And since October, I have been relatively strict about eating small portions, and making healthy food choices.
I cheat weekly on my "diet" but I never cheat on my exercise. Me and exercise, we are bff's.
But this past week, something changed. I just didn't want to exercise. We were busy, and instead of planning out my gym time, it ended up being the last thing on my to-do-list. So I ended up skipping the gym on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Then when I finally went on Sunday morning, all I did was walk on the treadmill. And if you know me, then you know I don't consider walking an exercise at all. It's an activity, not exercise, at least in my mind. Exercise to me is when you sweat like crazy, push yourself to your absolute limits, and feel sore the next day. Sounds fun, huh?
SO today, I am going to eat well and show no mercy in my kickboxing class tonight. Because it's not even about the physical feel-good effects exercise has, its the mental health makeover it brings that really keeps me coming back for more.
(But at least you can have a healthy and active life while you're still alive!!)
