Energy

Saturday, January 02, 2016

It looks like this exercise thing is working. While the scale hasn't budged, I'm feeling more energetic, even in the late afternoon when I typically feel a bit sluggish. The equation doesn't make sense to me: I'm using more energy b/c of the exercise (60-90) min/day, but I seem to have more energy than before I started exercising. Weird, but I'll take it.

It's back to work on Monday, so I probably won't be able to keep up the number of fitness minutes that I've been logging during the holidays, but that's okay. I'll do what I can do. I'm off to a great start and that brings its own kind of energy.

Hope all of you out in Sparkle Land are taking nice steps on your fitness journeys, as well. We can do this, Sparkly friends!

    Great observation!
    I too felt like that within a few days after starting exercising, before losing a pound.
    Now we can see through the illusion of "it is hard to exercise" - it may be hard to start, but once you are in, miraculously it gives you more energy : )

    It is hard to believe sometimes, like coming home tired after a long working day.
    I noticed the only thing that makes me feel better is gentle exercise: a short yoga or walk blows away the tiredness - eating does not. Counter-intuitive indeed.

    I've noticed that I feel sluggish and tired in afternoon after I work out but can't sleep. So its a plus that I don't nap in afternoons as much.
