Last night I had a strange dream, I was at Girl's Camp (a way fun camp for the girls 12-18 in our church) and one of the activities was Yoga (there was also a large dinosaur on the loose so we had to be very careful). Oh man in my dream it felt so good to stretch my muscles and really move again, when I woke up it was 5:24 a.m. (the time when I normally get up to exercise) and I was wide awake.
I had not planned on working out this week, I figured I needed a bit more time to heal. It hurts to put a shoe on and while the pain in my back and shoulder is gone they are still a bit stiff.
But my body had other plans in mind, it was craving the workout and was determined to get one.
So even though I didn't go to bed until almost midnight, I crawled out of bed and headed to class.
I took it easy on my shoulder and I had a bit of trouble kneeling on my leg, but for the most part the workout felt amazing.
I came back home and crawled in bed with Rob and went back to sleep for a while, something else my body decided it wanted. When we got out of bed I asked if it was possible to crave exercise because it was a strange new feeling for me and he did assure me it was possible.
I didn't think I would ever be to a point where I wanted to exercise, I like how it makes me feel, but in the past if I didn't make it or went months without going it was no big deal.
My goal is to be in really great shape by our 10 year anniversary in August, we are planning to hike the back side of Timp and it is a very tough hike.
Plus who doesn't want to look hot on their anniversary.
Rob and I have started calling it J80X, and although I have been getting a slow start I think I am finally getting into my groove.
