Last month I started my Doctor Who workouts, so I decided to give a little bit of an update.
First off, I still don't like exercising. I have to really talk myself into working out every day after work. It is made a bit easier by watching Doctor Who. This being said, I have noticed some differences, both physical and mental. I just feel better about myself. I don't think I necessarily have a more toned stomach or arms. But I feel better about those things. The days when I don't work out (or the week when I only worked out once), I definitely feel grosser about my body, and am more inclined to have a lower self image. Who would have thought?! I liked my body before I started working out, at least, I thought I did. I don't get as many headaches as I used to--which could probably also be fixed by taking frequent breaks from sitting at work. But one of the biggest emotional advantages I've noticed is a little bit less anxiety when I work out. In fact, this week, I have/had a couple of stressors and I even started thinking "I should work out, maybe that will help my anxiety about [thing]." Weird. Must be the whole endorphin thing. Good to know I won't be killing my [nonexistent] husband.
Second, I'm probably going to be keeping this up. I might even try to do it more than the 1 to 4 times a week. That's the thing, I haven't been very consistent at it, so I'm going to try to do that better. Also, certain episodes just aren't that great to workout to. I watched one and I only did ten jumping jacks and ten crunches. It was pretty lame, so I need to watch out for that.
So, that's my little update. I'm still not an workout fanatic, but I am seeing some changes in myself.
