Happy People Don't Kill Their Husbands

That's one of my favorite lines from a movie. Do you know which one? It's Legally Blonde. The full quote goes like this, "Exercise creates endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don't kill their husbands." I use it a lot at my Weight Watcher meetings when trying to encourage women to exercise. It's usually good for a few laughs.

Yesterday, I took my own advice. Having not slept well the night before (I do not think I will ever get used to Becky walking in the door at one in the morning), and feeling so much stress my stomach was in knots (rare do I feel so stressed, I can't eat), I opted to ride the bike rather than vegetate in front of the television.

We're still not riding outside though. So with the bike hooked into the trainer, Chris popped in a training DVD and we did Chris Carmichael's Train Right Climbing Routine without leaving our bedroom (personally, I could think of other things that would be more fun without leaving our bedroom ;D but this is what we chose). Man, did I sweat. And man, did my heart pound. And man, did I feel good afterward. Not just physically good but mentally much better too - clearer, well, happier.

Today it's supposed to be in the 50s, so I may take the combi-bike out for a short ride and Becky and I are definitely going for a walk.

Oh and to everyone who offered your encouragement, thanks! Four good days in a row - I'm going for three more!!

That IS a great line! I don't care what anyone says; I loved that movie.
And I love endorphins -- sometimes that's the only thing that gets me to the gym. Good luck with your workouts, Kim!

Yay, Kim!
I'd think those endorphins would be useful right about now... ;)

I love that movie too! Good on you for exercising when you wanted to chill. I got the flu and had to stop running and it made me upset!

Colleen, if I wasn't waiting to get on a conference call right now, I'd be back on the bike (or hitting the scotch. ;D)

sandrac:

I think that Scotch would be very useful right now!

Hee. "Scotch. What's not to like?"
