I attended a class recently. An exercise class. I attend 2 that are zumba/step and then the other is just step class with a few intervals tossed in, to work a little harder. A new class has been introduced and it's a little more "hard core". I've never been to it before and I went recently. It was REALLY HARD!!!!!!! I enjoy doing things in a class setting because it motivates me. I don't want to be the one who quits. It forces me to push myself a little harder. I think I pushed too much. There's something to be said for knowing your limitations.
Anyway..... for the past few days I have been sore. REALLY sore. As I attempt the stairs, up or down, I feel all my muscles screaming at me. It's not painful, per se, but more of an ache. A reminder. The longer I sit, the more I seized up. I kept telling myself all day "just keep moving". I felt much like Dori in 'Finding Nemo' ~ "just keep swimming, just keep swimming!"(said in a sing song voice)
All this encouraging throughout the day, caused my thinking to stray. I had a very 'relaxed' day. Ok that's a lie. I had a very lazy day. I lacked the motivation to do anything. I need things to happen. I want things to happen. Now. I'm impatient. When confronted with the nothingness, I sometimes paralyze myself. As if the only thing I can do is sit and wait. Aching today reminded me to just keep moving............ in my LIFE.
I'm pissy that I can't ride my bike. It's been my "go to" thing that has kept me busy. When I was bored, I simply, went. I fell in love with it this summer and haven't replaced it with anything. That's no excuse for my sedentary attitude. Neither is this crappy cold weather. I did a lot this summer and I made things happen. I feel that I've lost some of that. I need to get it back. I need to, DO! I need to just keep moving, in all aspects of my life. It will all fall together eventually. I can just sit and wait. Life goes on, no matter what. JUST KEEP MOVING!!! Lesson learned, and tomorrow will be different. No, really!
