Each second I am living for this day
Sometimes we get stuck in a bad cycle and we just can’t seem to pull ourselves out. Things seem to be going wrong and we can’t figure out how to fix them.
We just seem to keep digging ourselves a deeper and deeper hole.
Sometimes a change in your diet and exercise program can be just what you need.
Elle in “Legally Blonde” has a point: “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.”
Exercise does “give you endorphins.” Exercise can make you feel empowered, successful, strong and happy.
It is also something that is within your control to change.
Maybe you are stressed out at work or there is a family situation going on. There may be nothing at the moment that you can do to alleviate the stress of either.
But if you come in and workout – you can control that. Yes, sometimes you may be so stressed out that you feel like you can’t even spare a minute for yourself, BUT trust me you can!
Just take 20 minutes to push yourself and you will feel 100% better afterwards! You don’t have to workout for an hour to feel better!
This all goes back to my theory that training is therapy.
This post is dedicated to Erin who took control of her life and pushes herself to reach new heights each and every day! (And the title is from her!)

I always knew that strength wasn’t just physical. The emotional strength that I have gained from training is more than just powerful it’s empowering! This is what truly keeps me going!
