Let's get you into the spirit with some mood music...Hurts So Good
Getting into bed at night hurts.
And getting out of bed hurts.
And using my legs to sit down on the toilet hurts.
And trying to stand up after tinkling hurts.
Stairs? Ouch...thank God for handrails.
Sitting on my butt cheeks...hurts.
Reaching for shampoo in the shower? Hurts.
And it all HURTS SO GOOD!
The human body was designed to MOVE. The muscles and bones and fluids and cartilages'n stuff all working together in motion FEELS GOOD.
Moving makes me feel ALIVE.
Taking the stairs, parking in the farthest parking spots, FEELS GOOD. Getting on the treadmill or walking in the neighborhood FEELS GOOD.
And working with my new personal trainer, Kim? HURTS SO GOOD! My muscles have, get this, muscle memory (ha) and they are remembering what to do when squatting, lunging, stretching, reaching, crunching and lifting. Go figure.
And I like being sore...because it is a gentle reminder that I am taking care of myself and doing all I can (again) to be fit and healthy.
I don't like torture, and exercising and fitness is NOT torture. It is fun. It feels good. AND I AM WORTH THE EFFORT.
That is all. KEEP CALM and FITNESS ON! (I am such a dork)
I am WORKING HARD and WORKING OUT because...I LIKE IT!
p.s. stay tuned for personal trainer updates. I like my new trainer and can't wait to share what I am learning and how it is going.......remember. Do what works. What works for me is GETTING HELP.
