This is why

"Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don't kill their husbands."
Today I remembered why I really NEED exercise. I have been busy and caught up in other things and have completely neglected the workout regimen. I finally just made a point to go, and I can feel the addiction again. I can't wait to go back.
.
While I was jumping up and down on that step for an hour, jamming to awesome music, sweating, feeling my heart pump and legs burn, I felt so happy. I felt excited and energized.
After the class my friend Susan said, "I don't need a doctor, I just need to exercise." She is so right. It's the best antidepressant ever.
.
Now, I feel the lactic acid building in my legs and tomorrow I'll feel the burn. The sweet burn of soreness. Yesss...that means it's working.
.
I'm going back. Tomorrow.
