I have been more in tune with my workouts lately.  Is it because I am a few short days away from my first half marathon of the year?  Is it because I have been training for the last three months?  Is it because I am re-energized after my vacation workouts?  I can’t pinpoint what it is but I have realized that my workouts make me happy.  They are not something I just do anymore but something I want to do.

I feel great after a workout.  If I workout first thing in the morning it puts me in a great mood for the day.  If I workout at the end of the day I feel refreshed and happy when I am done, even if it has been a long day.

 

good mood

 

Just like I don’t want to miss a new Grey’s Anatomy, a new movie, a lunch date with a friend, a dinner date with my hubby, a fun day out with my kids/family etc.  Workouts are a part of my day I don’t want to miss now.  I look forward to doing them.  Whether it is a run day or a strength day, I am always ready.

It hasn’t always been like this.  I used to workout because it was on my to do list for the day and because I knew I needed to to be healthy.  There are some days now that still feel like this but not often.

I am so happy that my mindset has shifted, that they are not just a check off the to do list.  But instead a time I look forward too.  A time for myself that brightens my day and makes me feel amazing.  

I want to be in shape.  I want to be healthy.  I want to challenge myself and push myself.  I like doing it.  I am happy doing it.  I feel good afterward.  I am proud of my accomplishments and the goals I have made and met.   I look forward to the goals I have yet to achieve.

 

why

 

How do you feel about working out?  Is is just something you do or something you do because you love it?  What is your favorite exercise?
