This morning's workout was titled "Sweat Slinger"... I was looking for cardio and resistance. Well dang, I got it! And yes, there was some sweat slinging off of me. Gross. But, it's now starting on week 6 of daily exercise and I'm so happy to be sticking with it. My knees hurt constantly and I limp all the time... but I'm still moving, so that makes me happy. Buttonpopper commented that I always liked to dance & yes, to this day when Uptown Funk comes on, I have to start moving (much to my kid's dismay!). One of the workouts I was doing, Daniel the instructor says something about being thankful that we can move. And to just enjoy moving. And it is so true. I wish I enjoyed and embraced it more before I had arthritis...before I was overweight... BUT, I can still enjoy it now. And it makes me feel better. And no, still haven't stepped on the scale even though GreenieTeanie makes a good point about the scale can also be an encourager to push harder when it's not moving... One day. Right now I'm just trying to be my best me. Learning to talk kindly about myself instead of constantly complaining about myself. Drinking lots of water. And smiling. No matter how much crap is going on in our lives, we can still be filled with joy. There is always so much to be thankful about and when you're thankful, the joy comes. Focus on the positive. Give yourself a break. Be kind. And smile.
