The Elusive Serotonin Burst From Exercise

God, I wish I got that! I’m not a fan of the exercise.

Jim works out religiously. He runs and lifts weights daily. He bikes. I’m pretty sure that I could count on one hand the number of days he hasn’t exercised since I met him 15+ years ago. I admire him for that. I also hate him!

I understand the need to exercise. I know the benefits the body gets for being mobile and limber.

I just wish it was a whole lot more fun.

I also get bored pretty quickly.

Yesterday I started a back to the beginning exercise class. This seemed the best choice for the inflammatory arthritis that has come with my Sjogren’s Syndrome and my pocketbook. It was nice. It felt good to sweat. My body is limber. I think I was the youngest one there.

I hope this feeling lasts.

I wish I could go back to 20-year old me and tell me to find some exercise I really like and stick with it. I think 45-year old me would feel better!

But I can’t go back in time, so I will do my best to remain active.

Do you exercise? Why? What do you do? Do you like it or not?
