Going In

Slow Motion

I have been focusing on listening to my body lately. My posture as well as my body mechanics and movements. I want to appreciate the body I have and work with it not against it. Getting in tune with your body can be an eye-opening experience!

This focusing has brought up some very bad habits I have formed with exercising. For instance, that whole vein-popping, purple-faced look is so out right now! Breathing properly (inhaling/exhaling) is important, especially to your core strength.

In looking back I feel that I moved through exercising to just get it done at times, especially the hard, unpleasant stuff! The faster I went through the motions the faster I could get out of there. Then I found myself going in the opposite direction. Let’s spend an hour plus at the gym at least four days a week and one day do legs, then another day do cardio, then another day do arms, and then another day was a free for all. You know what I am talking about, right!

Then I went there the crazed woman in the gym taking it to the extreme! It is like someone let me loose and set my body on fire. The faster I went the faster I thought the fire would go out. I have stuffed that crazed woman in a locker and high tailed it out of there!

Finally I am finding a whole new appreciation for exercising and being active! I still experience setbacks, but do not give up. I never thought I would find a balance when it comes to exercising (it has been all over the place). My Body “Thanks” Me for the Good Changes I am Making!

Going In Slow Motion & Loving It!!!
