Hey there everyone! Hope your having a great day. Getting some things done around the house today and I have done a workout at home. One thing I HAD to do was watch last nights episode of American Horror Story. It didn’t disappoint.
I thought I was going to be really sore today after working out with T yesterday but I am actually pretty good. Sometimes I swear her goal is to see if she can make it difficult for me to get out of bed the day after a workout. I still get sore from time to time but what some people say about exercise is true – you will never be as sore as you were after the first time you worked out. I will always remember those hard days that I had those first couple of weeks. The days I struggled to get through an hour session without puking. The memories are good though because I can see the outcome of all that hard work. Sometimes I have to force myself to get a workout in. I do it though because I don’t ever want to be back at the starting gate. I remember struggling to do one push-up, having to sit down after 10 jump squats for fear of puking, and hardly being able to do a lunge. I struggled and I don’t ever want to do that again.
My stress level is so much better when I stay consistent with exercise. Stress is a huge trigger for me with seizures. I create my own stress, silly things – I actually live a very low-key life. I joke with my friends about how their lives stress me out. The running they do and all the errands etc. It’s true though, I would totally stress out!! So I keep exercise going, I remember how much better I feel after a workout. I may be a scatter brained mess when I head to the gym but when I finish up I feel so much better!
