The Workout Blues.

The Workout Blues should be the name of a song.  I should be the singer because for the past month or so, I had a bad case of what one could call "the workout blues."  I had been neglecting my fitness regiemen that I once LOVED and kept making excuses.  I know I'm not the only one guilty of this, but it has taken a toll on not only my physical health, but my mental health.  I kind of felt like this:

That's not me.  I'm not a guy. But that's what I felt like.

It seems easy for me to prepare healthy meals for the most part.  I don't struggle with it nearly as bad as I struggle with keeping to an exercise routine.  Even thinking about going to the gym frightened me.  Maybe frightened isn't the right word.  It was almost like seeing a friend who you haven't seen in years and you were meeting for dinner.  I guess nervous is a better word.

I know, get on with it Carolyn...

This last weekend I finally cut the nerves and went to a spinning class.  If anyone remembers my spinning post, you'll remember that it takes roughly 30 minutes to get mentally clear when I'm in a class.  Sure enough, about halfway into my class I felt GREAT!  Exercising provides a high unlike anything else and I was reminded of how much I love a good sweat, burning thighs and having an instructor scream over the music..and the music was loud!

It was all that I needed to get back on the bike.  I've been back to the gym twice since then and found a workout on "Fit Fab Cities" that I can't wait to try.  It's a 45-minute workout and accompanying music is provided!  Check it out here!

I guess the lesson here is not to get nervous, and just do it.  I have never regret working out, but I have regret not working out.  Lesson learned!
