I'm Alive...and Well... and I'm ME again!

So for days now..... my BF has been asking me what's wrong.  Nothing is wrong I keep telling him.  And nothing really is grand!  Well.... I mean - I have a few issues, but don't we all.  I'm trying not to focus on the negatives and just thank God every day for all the GREAT things I have in my life.  And yet - he keeps asking me what's wrong.  His description was simply that I seemed "blah."   I don't get it.  I thought I was fine!
Guess what!!!!!!!!  (he MIGHT have been a little bit right....)
I went to the gym tonight!!
yes I did!
And for those of you who go to the gym - you will understand - I can't TELL you how much better I feel after going.  I'm ME again and I didn't even realize I had lost me.  (Remember this girl...  she apparently went into some sort of deranged hybernation....YUCK!)
yeah yeah... all you naysayers can zip it!
I'm a firm believer that exercise and healthy living DO play a role in your attitude and how you feel about yourself.
SOOOOOOOo - anyway - I just wanted to share that!
If you don't go to the gym - what better time to start than right now.
This time of year wreaks HAVOC on my attitude!   I'm living proof that excercise DOES have a positive influence in your life!  :)
Now........go sign up somewhere and get started!

For all you Bowling Green followers - Get Toned Fitness is a GREAT place to start!  David does personal training and coming from someone who has NEVER committed to a gym in my life.... (oh - I committed to PAYING - just never committed to GOING)   trust me when I say, the results you get with him and the FUN you have when you are there - will keep you committed  :)
David also has a fitness blog you should check out!

Here's my song for the day!
I'm alive...and well... and today that's good enough for me!

Enjoy those natural endorphins.I'm convinced that exercise is God's little antidepressant he made for us.

Working out makes me feel better too, even on the days I think I don't want to.

I do Jazzercise and I love it. I don't always love it when I'm on my way to work out, but afterwards I feel GREAT!

You go, girl!

Very very true! Exercise does amazing things to the body mind and soul! Anyone who says it doesn't hasn't really given it the old Girl Scout try!

I think that's why I love Zumba so much. Hardly anything casuses me to miss a class. I used to go five times a week....I miss being able to do that but being a mommy also gives me a high...

Rock the sunshine T!

Ok. I was going to sleep in till 6 in the am and skip the treadmill. You've convinced me to suck it up. Now I have to go to bed!

I completely agree, running/jogging always helps clear my mind!
