What Is A Workout?

I'm working out again.


Trying to get my pregnancy weight off before I get pregnant again and using it as a healthy tool to release some of my anxiousness.

Sounds smart.

I read this the other day and I just LOVE it ... I think of it every time I work out (because let's my honest, staying ON the elliptical is HARD!).

What Is A Workout?

"A workout is 25% Perspiration and 75% Determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.

A workout makes you feel better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly your problems diminish and your confidence grows.

A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is a badge of a Winner, the mark of an organized, goal oriented person who has taken charge of his or her destiny. A workout is a wise use of time and an Investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.

A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to Opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.

A workout is a form of Rebirth. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, you feel better about yourself."

Awesome. I think I'll print this and tape it to my bathroom mirror.
