Exercise and energy...

Is there a direct correlation?

Without extensive research I'm going to say yes. At least for me.

This week, I have not been very diligent about exercising. But after thinking about the days I exercised and comparing them to the days I didn't, I can see that on the days I did, I came to work feeling more energized and ready to get to work and accomplish something. The days I didn't exercise, I felt blah and unmotivated.

Feeling blah and unmotivated makes you want to skip exercising even more and it becomes an awful cycle.

So what's a person to do? Push on through and do it anyway! Easier said than done, eh??

What about you? Are you easily detoured from doing what you need to do or are you motivated enough or strict enough with yourself not to give in to the blahs? Is giving in even an option for you?

And happy Friday all! This is writers group weekend and I can't wait to see my chapter mates, critique partners, and friends.

I also find my whole day goes better if I exercise. But I need to do it first thing in the morning for it to work for me.

My first exercise of the day is getting out of bed ... feeding indoor critters and then the outdoor ones. I have to do the fingers to the toes to stretch my lower back - that old arthritis; I do anywhere from 5 to 7. One of my picker-uppers is brunch. Oatmeal with Coconut Oil, Honey and Cinnamon. I think I'm also going to try it with Cream of Wheat ...

Not too much, but having the Coconut Oil daily has helped with the energy levels.
