Best Med

Do you like to workout? I do. I love it actually and I never thought I would say that in my life. The truth is I need it. I was on my way home after work last night and was doing a bit of negative self-talk. I was half way home sitting at a red light when I consciously made a point that I needed to stop beating myself up. I started driving through the intersection when I thought, "I need a workout." What?!?! 

It made me think about when I get a headache or a migraine. I have learned over the years there is a point where I know I need to take my meds or I am going to be in serious trouble. That is how I felt driving home last night. I needed to shut the negative self talk down and the best way to do that is a workout. 


Now did I workout last night... sadly no. I did get a lot of stuff done in preparation for my weekend though. Then this morning I got up and did a killer workout. I got in 90 minutes and burned 611 calories. Boom baby! The hardest part of working out is getting started. 

Here are some things that have helped me:

  • Put my workout clothes on as soon as I get home.
  • Make my pre-workout drink & drink it on my way home from work.
  • Turn on my workout music that gets me moving. 
  • Text my friend Lyndsey or my Mom & Aunt Mary for accountability.
  • Plan my workout and what I am doing. 
  • Sweaty Selfies 😊 (I am loving these!)
Now I just need to start getting those workouts in more often.

  1. I think it is SO hard to work out after work. You've been through such a day, you're tired, and all you want is to sit and watch television. Good for you for strategizing ways to get moving.

    1. I agree on the sitting & watching TV. I have a sectional and a loveseat and if I sit on the sectional I am done for the night.

  2. I think working out is the best way to end the day. It gives you more energy, helps you eat smarter and sleep better. Good job!!
