Day 12: Exercise is the best Medicine!
No matter how shitty of a day I am having, I always exercise. Why? Mostly because I know I will feel uplifted and revived when I'm finished. I have never met someone that has regretted a workout. Have you? If I'm sad, I workout. If I'm nervous or anxious about something, I workout. As soon as I feel the first beads of sweat building up on my skin, optimistic thoughts take over my mind. It's like my spirit is renewed. When I'm weight-training I feel confident, strong, independent and empowered. I still find it hard to believe that their are people who absolutely NEVER exercise.
