Fitness is my filter. Everything that I think about, worry about and stress about goes through my fitness filter. It is my best friend, arch enemy, therapist, physiatrist, counselor and medication all rolled into one. I do not function well without it. I depend on it!
If I go more than 2 days without exercising I am off balance, I feel it and more importantly my family feels it . My 3 year old son even recognizes when I am crabby and has been known to say “Mommy needs to go to the gym!” I have made working out apart of my daily routine, just like sleeping and brushing my teeth. For me the mental benefits of working out far out weigh the physical. Of course it is nice when you see changes and have a healthier apperance, but my brain is what craves exercise!
I workout to brainstorm ideas, sort throught the clutter, and release all of my frustrations. In fact some of my best and creative ideas or solutions have come to me while in the treadmill, bike or precor machine. I generally prefer to workout alone with my music as loud as can be. But I have participated in Boot Camps, Kickboxing, and other group fitness classes too. Those types of classes have served me well, for meeting new friends, supportive comradery and feeding my competitive spirit.
I am sharing this with you because it is Fitness Month for Savvy Sassy Moms and I wanted to give you a snapshot of how fitness fits into my life and why I am so excited about this month! I am not an expert on personal training, fitness, or claim to be a professional. I do however feel that I am quite savvy on the subject.
What to expect all month long?
