A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

No work out + Stress = Crazy person

Monday, November 19, 2012

It is a truth I will now universally acknowledge that when I don't work out, I became a bat s*** crazy person. I know you believe this is an over-exaggeration. It is not. Seriously. 

On Saturday morning, I got up and went for a run at Lake Michigan. It was a glorious 43 degrees. The sun was shining. I saw three deer about fifteen feet away from me. No dogs tried to bite me. It was a good run. The rest of Saturday was spent running around... until I started to feel totally run down. Sunday was more running around and more feeling run down, so I didn't work out. I barely even walked... unless it was to get more cheese. Or cake. 

And by last night, I was a crazy person. 

I was crabby, emotional, and exhausted. For no real reason whatsoever. I was just being a crazy person. 

Today at work, it was a Monday. It's odd, because tomorrow is our last day of the school week before Thanksgiving break (Friday Tuesday?), so I was trying to be energetic and motivated but I wasn't having it. Tonight, I learned a couple of new routines before Jazzercise and then taught Body Sculpt class. And what happened? I felt AMAZING by the time it was over. Apparently, for me, the answer to dealing with stress, crabiness, anger, and being upset is working out the frustrations. Thank goodness for a solid work out to clear the brain and bring back some positivity. 

In other news, the most fantastic holiday ever is this week! More on that later! :)
