After last week’s TEAM Friday post, someone unliked my Facebook page. Sure, it could have been coincidence. It could have been that they just realised that Get On With IT Already was not the blog they thought it was. Note – my numbers don’t mean so much as the amount of interaction I have but I do notice the numbers and get excited when a person chooses to ‘like’ my page.
Their exit made me think. Could they have taken my post the wrong way? They may have mistook my want to exercise as unhappiness with my current body. This is not the case so much as it is the energy side of things, although a slightly lifted bottom would be nice, after yesterday’s shopping trip and still no coloured jeans for me (skinny jeans just do not fit my shape), anyone seen some bootcut ones?
So one would think that with all this talk about exercise and my post, I would have strapped those running shoes and just got on with it! Well, um, no. It didn’t happen.
My lack of energy stopped me and it’s almost funny considering that exercise will bring me more energy … it’s a vicious circle if your not on it.
No exercise = low/no energy
More exercise = more/high energy
See what I mean? I could give you all the excuses under the sun, like it’s Winter and Long Pants Wearing Season i.e. unshaven legs for longer periods .. please tell me I am not the only one? and I just don’t have any exercising ‘long’ pants .. well no excuse really holds up (but I did buy some yesterday).
I have had a huge slump in energy levels which I attribute to the lack of exercise. But it’s not just physical, it affects mental energies as well.
Did you know that physical activity releases endorphins? The happy chemicals in your brain therefore exercise is good both physically and mentally?
I am going to shift focus from ‘but I really must get this and this done instead’ to ‘remember how good you feel afterwards?’ and ‘you’ll actually achieve more after exercising’, let’s see if that works!
I have also managed to sort my ‘to do’ list, details on the blog soon
What have you done to increase either/both physical and mental energies lately?
Share what you have been doing to motivate and energize this week
*cooking/eating healthy recipes
*ticking off another project off the ‘to do’ list and how
ANYTHING that you do that fills up your soul, nurtures your body and mind, adds excitement to your life.
