The Perfect Time for A Workout

by Lisa on Tuesday: Feb 05, 2013

And the award for the perfect time for a workout goes to… while procrastinating!

Today was quite the stressful day at the office. There’s a big deadline looming and I have a lot of work to do to meet it. Today was one of those days where I worked through lunch, left the office at 5 and came home to sign back on and continue working for a few more hours. Not only is it hard to have days like that mentally, but physically it can also be tough because our bodies get bored and restless when sitting in a chair for hours and hours and hours on end.

When I left the office, even despite the knowledge that I still had work ahead of me, I decided to throw on my workout clothes and do my bootcamp workout. I wanted to spend an hour doing something physical rather than mental to clear my mind and help me calm down from the stress of the day.

The workout was SUPER tough, but I think it did the job. These past few days, my workouts have been making me feel so much calmer and focused after they’re over. Maybe it’s because they require so much physical exertion that my mind gets a very rare break. Who knows why it is? But either way, I’m liking it.

Also, knowing that when I finished the workout I would have to get back to working made me want to keep working out so I didn’t have to get back on the computer so quickly :)

I’m behind on the official Fitmixer workout schedule because I started one week late and because of the days I took off last week when my hip was hurting. I’m officially one day away from finishing week 2 of the workouts. I’m going to hang in there for the full 8 weeks!

I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start!
