Extraordinary Machine

I worked out today.

I returned to Workout 1 on the 30 Day Shred.  Last week I managed some walking on the treadmill, but I still felt so sick that I couldn’t push myself much.  Today I actually worked out and now I have that high that I always forget is possible in the times that I don’t work out.

Finally I realized that I will have to actually make a change if I want my life to change.  Writing and connecting with myself is all good and well, but I’m going to have to actually show up at my workouts if I expect results.

But, as a result I feel more alert and awake than coffee alone could ever bring me.  It’s a good place to be.

Life happens so we might as well show up and make the most of it.

You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive…

What shall I tell you about?  I was terribly sick last week, but I think it provided me ultimately with a great deal of rest.  The beginning of the week started with an adventure of sorts that I’m not ready to talk about.  There were a few days where I burned with excitement and ambivalence and was forced to face my past as it ran screaming into my unsuspecting future.  It was glorious and scary and when it was over I had a terrible cold.

I didn’t exercise at all.
