|"Me doing it!"|
I promised, well announced on my blog The Diabetic Caveman that I would proceed with an exercise regime starting soon, which happened to be today.
I had to post about it. After 40 minutes of moderate intensity circuit training and a bout of cool down cardio my mood instantly improved. I felt calmer, I felt that my thoughts were clearer and more positive which according to the cognitive behavior Jedi Mind Tricks this leads to a more positive mood.
I willed my ass to the basement even though I did not want to at all. I dragged my sorry ass down stairs to the man cave and did it anyways.
I have not felt this clear, and positive in a very long time. I knew it had to be done, I knew the hormones that are released with activity which include, endorphins, testosterone, serotonin would directly improve my mood.
It is taking that first step that is the most difficult. I took the first step, and tomorrow is another day and I know I will have to struggle with my mind, and will myself to repeat what I did today.
