comments that she has to exercise even when feeling bad, because if she doesn’t she’ll just feel worse.
I’m coming to the same conclusion. Hadn’t missed three workouts in a row in months. But Thursday PM we went to a play, Fri we went out with friends, and Saturday we got caught up in a project and didn’t get around to working out.
By Sunday morning we were both miserable. K came in and announced he was going to cancel his gym appointment because he felt so crappy. I suggested he might be feeling that way because we hadn’t worked out… he reacted with great irritation (not directed at me, just a lot of flouncing about and scowling) but went to the gym. Came back with a palpably improved aura, apologized for acting like a two-year-old. Me, after the workout I felt good enough for an afternoon of vigorous yardwork, which I wouldn’t have predicted in the morning.
I haven’t actually found my jeans getting too big on me (congratulations,
!) but have noted that I am able to indulge a heartier appetite without the jeans becoming too small…
