I don't care what the calendar says. It's Spring around here.
So gorgeous outside....it makes me want to play hookie. Do a little clean up on late season boot shopping. And I think - I just might! (It's always helpful when you work near a mall. Or is it hurtful? Hmmm. Either way, it's happening today!)
I went back to karate and kickboxing on Monday. Yup, I'm still sore. But it's a good sore....and that in of itself is like a high. I am a total believer in the "no pain - no gain" concept. So, to have "the burn" makes me feel rejuvenated. (Those of you who workout, know exactly what the "burn" is!). I love to work out to the point of being drenched. It's a cleansing - aside from the fact of knowing you got a good workout - you feel like you got all those impurities out as well.
Exercise is addictive too. I think so. I mean, I haven't been for 5 months - and yet - going back one night gets me all revved up full speed again. And I swear, I'm in better shape than I was Monday morning. hahaha. I know that's not true -but there is definitely a psychological aspect to exercise. I workout - therefore I must look good, because I feel good. Not a bad mindset to feed into.....
So - as I sit here listening to Liz Phair, thinking about how I'm going to go and enjoy a little gratuitous boot shopping (okay, I might be persuaded to buy a fun pair of sandals for the spring!!!) and prepare for tonight's workout - I just can't help but feel a little giddy.
Sometimes, it's just fun being a girl. :)
