Loving to workout?

This phrase is sort of an oxymoron. Do people really LOVE to workout or do they just do it because they have too. Well before today, I was doing it because I needed to. But today, for some reason, I just really enjoyed my workout. It wasn't due to stress, it wasn't due to knowing I needed to burn extra calories off either. It was a true and real joy as I did it.

Today was my arms and chest workout. Lots of curls with weights, pushups and spider crawls. Yes, spider crawls, don't you remember crawling like a spider at four years of age, well try doing it at 40, well almost 40!

I really valued and respected the feeling of the burn as I did my curls and I felt so empowered as I put down the 12 pound weight and lifted up the 15 and was able to complete my sets with more weight than what I thought I could do. It was rewarding to know that my two arms and two legs could carry me down the hallway as I did my spiderwalk.

As I finished the workout with my cardio and started thinking about the last hour of my time, I realized that I truly to pleasure in this experience today and this for sure is a mental transformation.

Are you loving your workout or just going through the motions?
Eat healthy and stay strong.
