Endorphins – Proud To Be Addicted!

August 6th, 2010 – 6:28AM

It’s true and I readily admit it.  I am an Endorphin Junkie! Yep!  No if, ands or buts about it.  I mean it’s only obvious – the days I work out and “move” my body are some of my best days ever.  The days I don’t make time or “skip” it – I tend to experience a lackluster sort of day.  So here’s the crazy part – if I know this – why would I ever “skip” my own workouts.  GRRRRRR. Well, that’s where I am at today.  I have realized for the umpteenth time that when I miss a workout – I am less productive, less energetic, less lovely to be around (incorrect grammar I am sure), less of the ME I want to be – so therefore – I have made a promise to myself that I shall make no more excuses for missing workouts. Even if it is just 10-15 minutes of KOR+ (my signature workout) or yoga or jumping rope, I must do something each day to release endorphins and increase my heart rate and hopefully “break a sweat”!

I bring this whole subject up because I suspect, heck – I KNOW, there are many of you out there who have the same experience.  So, acknowledge it and make peace with it… you are addicted to that release of endorphins, or maybe it’s just the rush of adrenaline with a good “pump” from lifting weights, or even just the love of a great sweat…but whatever it is – embrace it.   Make no excuses, don’t be embarrassed (I used to feel guilty for being so into my workouts) and most of all – do not SKIP IT!  Get in, Get it done and Get out!
