Exercise > Anti-depressants

I feel like a bad ass motha fukkkkkka ha

Some of you are so inspiring to me... especially Christy, Donna, and Lorie.

I feel like I've pretty much figured out the nutrition aspect of my Lap Band, unfortunately I just forget that exercising has it's benefits.  Those benefits aren't just what I see on a scale or in the mirror though.

Thursday I decided it was time I find an exercise I like.  This is partially weight loss motivated, but I also just REALLY need something to focus my mind on.  All I can think about is Mr. Banker and his lack of decision.  So I have needed something to put my mind in a different place.

So I bit the bullet and signed up for a two week trial Boot camp that damn near killed me back in July.

I attended yesterday at the 4:30pm class.
And then I got up and returned for the 9:15am class.


I realize this isn't my best look, but I FEEL GOOD!
Above: Tired before class.
Below: Sweaty but feeling baller after class.

I feel strong.

Empowered.

Relieved.

I was really upset yesterday before I went to the bootcamp class.  I was angry and hurt and it was consuming me.  After class though, I felt like the fog lifted from my mind.  I'm still somewhat hurt, but I'm feeling better.  I feel that this is going to be a good thing for me.

Physically and emotionally.

  1. Yes!!! It is GOOD to feel like a bad ass motha'. There is NO substitute for those exercise endorphins either. Sometimes when I don't want to workout, the only thing that gets me there is knowing how I'm going to feel afterwards.

    And you look AMAZING in your workout gear, girl. :)

  3. Totally get that "high" from exercising, it's what keeps me coming back for more, 5 hours a week! But it is waaaaay easier to park my butt on the couch or in front of the computer, so KUDOS to you for getting out there and working out. And I think you are rocking that tank!
