So there’s no excuse for feelin’ poorly.
I know, I know. When you’re feelin’ poorly the last thing you want to do is exert yourself, but sometimes it’s the best thing for you. Why, just the other day I came home feeling like I was sickening for something. I was not happy. I was a little pissed off. I was tired. All I wanted to do was flake out on the sofa with a big bowl of something.
And I came this [ ] close to doing just that. But then I dragged my sorry ass out the door and to a Zumba class. An hour later I was a new person – revived, energetic, glad to be alive.
I just wanted to share that with ya’ll in case you’d forgotten how nice a surge of Endorphins can feel.
