Kingcake I agree- i think more doctors should prescribe the gym instead of anti-depressants.  I personally love the days I get to box.  There is no medication that can match getting to punch things.

Endorphines! I love that feeling, too. It helps me feel less bloated in general, particularly around the waist. And not so lazy and sluggish. And I sleep WAY better. I have to keep reminding myself of all the other reasons to continue working out when the scale is stagnant.

@Corgi, you just gotta find something “fun” to do. I like Turbokick and spin. I HATE the gym unless i’m in classes. Like an old married trophy wife, lol. They all have matching outfits….=-]

So glad you are loving your workouts! It’s such a great feeling when you take time (much-needed and much-deserved time!) to take care of yourself and to make yourself feel good.

I recently learned a saying from a Hollywood trainer (Valerie Waters) that has encouraged me to workout even when I don’t feel like it:  “You’re only one workout away from a good mood.”  And as much as I like the physical changes, I am truly addicted to the sunny disposition and happiness I feel when I take good care of me!

Props doll – keep it up!

HAH! I’m with Corgi – I usually feel like a cow when I leave the gym. So I didn’t renew my membership and I run outside. LOL

Oh I am totally not saying that I like working out, but I love the way I feel when I’m done!

Haha, I go to kind of a pricey gym with “trophy wives” too. I was in a circuit class Friday and most of them were wearing super-cute bright-colored spandex workout tops. I was in a wrinkled Pabst Blue Ribbon t-shirt. Whatever. πŸ™‚

I’m glad you felt better after going to the gym!  It really does give you that high.

I get that feeling after riding! I think it’s the endorphins? I love it, and those are the best days of my week.

This is totally true and i know that if i am having a bad day i should resort to the gym rather than taking it out in negative ways but when i am in a bad mood i just DO NOT want to move, but the times where ive gained up the strength to go to the gym even if im upset i feel way better after!
