Happy Workout Wednesday,
For most workout Wednesdays, I post a workout, a new playlist, or a workout video, but today, I want to talk about WHY I workout. Of course we workout to look and feel good, but is that all? No, way! I could think of about a million reasons I workout and why I love to teach exercises classes, but I decided to narrow it down to my top 35 (ok, so I didn't narrow it down that much).
I Workout To.....
Set a good example for my daughter
Feel like a GLADIATOR IN SPANDEX (corny Scandal reference, but true)
Have an excuse to whoop and holler in public (my students know what I'm talking about)
Hang out with amazing friends
Look good for my husband (just being honest)
Thank my body for all it does for me
Revert back to my cheerleading days
Feel good about myself
Work off some steam
Sweat like a pig, and like it
Dance to hip hop music like I'm at a high school dance, and not care who's watching (all my high school friends are laughing to themselves right now)
Make myself smile --> the kind that creeps into your eyes because you're that happy
Have an excuse to sing along with my favorite songs
Bob my head to the music and have half the class do it with me
Spend 10, 20, 30, or 60 minutes just thinking about one thing (my workout) and not my to do list
Embrace my body
Make myself huff and puff for air
Feel my legs and arms shaking after a hard workout
Experience how rewarding a hot shower can be after a run in the cold
Reward myself for my hard work as an employee, mom, and wife
Meet new people
Try new things
Learn things I didn't know about myself
Push my limits
Increase my brain power
There you have it! The top 35 reasons I workout and love every second of it (most of the time)! If you came to the blog today hoping for a new workout, make sure you check out the great lower body barre workout I posted yesterday or my workout page for tons of ideas!
