exercise as an antidepressant
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
today, when i came home from work, i was not in the mood to exercise. i was actually trying to talk myself out of it. you're too tired, your foot is hurting, blah,blah, blah. Unfortunately, i signed up to do the spring into shape bootcamp, and i'm already a week behind. so, i got up off my rear and started the kickboxing video. into the second 10mins. i realized something; i felt good, really good. before i started; i was kind of depressed about my day. now i feel energized and ready to take on tomorrow. my mood has lifted, and i feel like i accomplished something. before i joined spark i didn't really exercise. i would start and then quit after a week, now i think i'm getting addicted to it. it really is an antidepressant, and without all the nasty side effects. i'm so glad i decided to get up and move.
