And now, a PSA about exercise...

I had a terrible yesterday. I was woken up with a frustrating phone call. It was nothing earth shattering-but stressful, nonetheless. I got dressed and went to the gym. While there, I chatted with some of my gym buddies and we discussed races we've done/are gonna do, talked about mundane everyday things, went into fitness class, got our butts kicked at said fitness class and then I went to the locker room to change. By the time I got to the locker room, I was smiling and looking forward to the day. Isn't it amazing what exercise can do? I forgot all about my problems. Plus, I used my frustration as a means to burn more calories. I am no Jillian Michaels, far from it, but to any of you who happen to read this here's some words of advice:

Having a tough day? Go for a run, jog, walk, bike ride-any sort of physical activity. It will do wonders. It did for me.

That is all. xo
