I got a little behind this weekend. I know, it’s hard to believe. I normally get ahead on weekends. I waited until Monday morning to pull lunches together and get my workout gear in place.
Before work I texted a group of friends that it was going to be a great day. Famous last words. About halfway to the office I realized I packed my socks and shoes, but in the rush of everything else, I left my workout clothes folded nicely on the end of the couch.
I could have really used a workout yesterday. I mean, really could have used one. My day was non-stop and I worked through lunch. I barely remember eating lunch. I walked across our quad no fewer than 7 times to check proofs and it was just hectic. It wasn’t a good feeling.
I worked out every day last week and I took a break on Saturday. On Sunday I ran 7 miles with Suzanne and I have plans to do weights today.
Yesterday I realized just how much I need my workouts. It’s not a matter of having to do them. I want to do them. They help me feel better physically. Mentally.
I would much rather exercise than see a doctor. Just last fall I saw a doctor for panic attacks. The only time I wasn’t having the attacks was when I was running. His recommendation? Run more.
A few weeks ago, I had a very frustrating morning and I told Faith I needed something to get my frustrations out. I did an extra circuit and at least one exercise involved throwing a large ball at a wall. It helped.
How do you deal with stress? I’m finding more and more that I work mine out physically.
