Life around here isn’t always one workout after the other. I am a real person and there are days when the LAST thing I want to do is workout.
Today was one of them.
Personal issues in my life have me down and I literally said out loud (to myself, lol!) that all I want to do right now is lie down on the couch to watch Teen Mom and eat some M&Ms. (my drug of choice)
There it is gang, REALITY! I get it. Sometimes life sucks you down a hole and you have no idea how to get out.
Well, you just have to MAKE yourself and that’s what I did. I literally gave myself a pep talk (out loud…to myself again!) and jumped into a tough workout.
As I was on the floor recovering, I took this picture…..which made me laugh.
(can you see what’s in the background? That would go great with my Teen Mom marathon, wouldn’t it?)
I then went for a quick walk in the warm sunshine. I feel a thousand times better right now and once again proved to myself to never underestimate the power of a workout.
Cheaper than therapy and sometimes more effective.
Now, I’m off to pick up all my little ones and make the best of the day!
Have you ever used a workout as a means of therapy?
and be honest….do you also watch Teen Mom?
