A reflection on PED.

For some reason, I could not figure out what the heck I wanted to do tonight. There were so many options, but I just felt..icky, lazy and well, lethargic. Not the most pleasant of emotions (combined no less).

Tonight, my RA and I decided to exercise. Since my Phys Ed class, with the gym teacher from..well...not heaven, ended, I have not really been doing any physical activity, with the exception of random midnight walks with my Muse. So RA and I got out the Pilates DVD that one of the girls in the dorm brought, and we buckled down and well...stretched. Not only that, but we also did this fun little video involving this balance ball thing, and it was hard! But so much fun!

I love the audrenaline I get after working out. I love how my body feels more relaxed. My muscles like it, they feel like there is a purpose to their existence (which I must admit, was dwindled with the whole being athletically challenged business I convince myself of). I love the fact that I have better posture, and sleep better after a good solid work out.

If I learned anything in the class I took (and loathed) last semester, it's that God gave us our bodies to help us be who we are. And that they actually are His temple. I learned that I don't take very good care of mine. As a result, I resolve to eat healthier, exercise more, and sleep regularily.

Exercise and fresh air does wonders for anyone I think!

I found a website that I think you might find interesting. It's called Unmuted. You can find it here: http://beunmuted.com
