That feeling

Usually I work out 5, 6 times per week but recently I have stopped for around 10 days. I have restarted my work out routine last Monday and is easy to say that on Friday my whole body was aching. I have started with cardio and my first 5 minutes on the tapis roulant on Friday morning were awful. But after the first 5 minutes my body started to get used to the movement and everything went smooth.

I have could stopped or simply don’t go, especially because I work out at 6 am in the morning, because is my only spare time during the day, but I went and I did my work out. Everything depends on me, if I want to do it or not.

Everything is in our mind, and we can control it. We are the only ones that can control our minds.

Nothing comes easy but believe me you can control it! Don’t find you excuses, you can always do it! It is depending only on you! And that feeling at the end? Priceless.

Start doing what you like, even if the journey is not smooth, you always can do it! Just believe in yourself!

    1. Yes, is the only time of the day I can go…as from 7:30am I’m already on my way to the office and I come back at 7:30-8pm in the evening…after I prepare the dinner and I finish with house works, I definitely don’t have the energy to go to the gym πŸ€ͺ
      Luckily your son keeps you fit πŸ˜…πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰πŸŒΈ

  1. 6 AM is a good time. Glad you too do cardio & workout. Thats a healthy way of living. Keep upβœ¨πŸ‘. And good motivation. “Everything is in our mind, and we can control it. We are the only ones that can control our minds” If we think, we can πŸ‘

    1. Yes, I’m trying as much as I can to work out…it makes me feel good πŸ˜‰ and in his way I can eat whatever I want πŸ€ͺ
      Indeed! Everything is in our mind and we can control it! Only if we want πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
      Thank you Simon for stopping by and wish you a wonderful day!

  2. Well done Ribana. I used to work out sometimes twice a day, plus swim 30 lengths a day. Hey folks, do it while you can! Take the moment. I can’t do it any more because of being blind and wheelchair bound. But oh boy, how I wish I could. I miss the gym. But no way can I go back to it. Just getting to the bathroom feels impossible some days. Go abead folks, do it while you still can. I used to feel great when I could do it

      1. Thanks Ribana. When I read your post I could just see that gym lol. I know sometimes it’s hard to get going but it’s worth it in the end. I shall dream of gyms now lol

  3. Oh I know this feeling very well! Each time I stop exercising for 10 days and when back, it hurts! A lot! like now it’s been 2 weeks and should be back today, I exercise after work, morning is so difficult to me, I don’t function, I might fall πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
    I made a system, 3 to 4 times per week, and it was very good and about the excuses, I can tell you that if you want it, you can do it! there are some days I couldn’t breathe, felt I want to die because there wasn’t enough air and so…some other days I was dizzy, because I wasn’t used at all, I sit, rest then I get up and continue,…So yes, everything in our mind and if we want it, we can do it 😊
    Have a great day πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. Exactly my dear! I hope your work out went well πŸ™‚ Is always difficult and painful to restart but how good makes you feel if you do it πŸ™‚ That is really priceless πŸ™‚ Last night I had 39 fever, I had my dinner and went to bad as I couldn’t keep my eyes open but this morning I was up and into the gym even if still with 37.4 fever…it was a little bit hotter than usual but I still did it. Is always in our mind if we want to do it or not. But our body sometimes doesn’t want to feel the pain then is coming our with the excuses. We just need to find our way, our system that works for us. I’m glad you found yours! Exercising helps a lot, especially if you like to eat and drink, like me πŸ™‚
      Thank you dear Huguette for your time and lovely interaction! As always very appreciated! Stay healthy and fit :)πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

      1. Oh my! Hope you will get well soon :/ with fever you can have a bit rest! Actually I couldn’t catch up, had many things to manage and couldn’t catch up at all hopefully next week I will and yes it feels so good certainly πŸ™‚
        Yes I know what you mean with the excuses and we should fight them and then I read that you shouldn’t force yourself and stuff, I really don’t know but I know I have to keep moving especially that I love to eat and drink πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
        Take care of your health, fever can be harmful and hope you’ll enjoy the weekend that is almost here πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

      2. We should never force ourselves but we should never stop moving πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰ We need to do it in a fun way πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰ Otherwise we see it as a β€œto do” which we are full of them πŸ€ͺ😊
        Weekend is almost here, hope you’ll be able to find some time and rest and recharge a little bit πŸ˜‰πŸ€—
        Thank you my dear! I’m pretty strong πŸ’ͺ🏻I never give up πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰
        Have a lovely day! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸŒΈπŸŒΈπŸŒΈ

      4. As usual, probably I will invent something to do, so that I’ll reach Monday morning saying that I want weekend πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  4. Lovely picture 😍
    True. You control your temptation, urges, obligations and so on. I just don’t think I’m working out anytime soon πŸ˜‚

    1. All of us we have different things that makes us feel good! For me working out is one of this πŸ™‚
      Thank you very much for your kind words! Have a wonderful day!
