I DONT Feel better After Exercising
This morning I woke up at 5am after a night of tossing and turning due to raging heartburn, and the fact that still . . . It was too hot and dry in our room.I told myself just to get up and go run anyway because I will feel better after. As my mom drove us to the beach, I contemplated sleeping in the car while she worked out.
So, I walked the first 15min like usual without music. Then when it came to the time I usually run, I turned on the music and it just seemed too noisy. So I walked and walked until I was a little more then half way thorough and tried again.
I lasted a hot 10 seconds . . .
Now, I was getting angry. I skipped a little bit of what I usually do and focused on getting back to the car. I started feeling just heavy, gross and noticed my new bloat I was sporting jiggled with every step.
My mom stopped to talk to a fisherman that she knows in the distance and I stopped far enough away from them waiting for her to come back so I could grab her keys. She stayed there for a good 5min and waved me over to come meet him. I obviously was in no mood so I threw my arms in the air and she came back and I snapped at her telling her I didn’t want to talk to anybody.
Now I’m sitting in the car waiting for her to finish and you know what?
I DONT feel better after exercising today.
I know I shouldn’t be hard on myself for walking. And I know a biting reason why I didn’t have the energy was because of all the processed food and sugar I ate all weekend, but I thought I was supposed to feel better. Isn’t that the rule?
At home I have a mountain of laundry to tackle and I have to head in for a stressful afternoon at work. I hope I cam turn this fowl mood around by then.
We have all heard that we should exercise even if we don’t feel like it because no matter what we will feel better. Has that ever not been true for you too?
