The 7-minute workout

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have a diligent workout routine. So when I heard about the new “7-Minute Exercise” last week I was pretty excited. Who can’t manage dedicating just seven minutes of their day to exercise, right? Without further ado, I tried it out and here’s my review.

Let me tell you, folks, it may have only lasted seven minutes, but it was quite a ride!

I exercise every morning before work. 6:45 AM I’m inside and going to town on the machines. The people who go at that time are all there to actually exercise, so I don’t mind if it’s busy. I, however, made the horrible decision of sleeping in on Thanksgiving and getting to the gym around 9:00 AM. Dear God. Instead of people sweating on the machines, I was greeted by people laughing, conversing, and standing around texting. GIVE. ME. A. BREAK. This is a gymnasium, not a tea party. 

I’d say plants are even more therapeutic for me than for most people, but I feel the need to share how I’ve given my apartment a bit of extra pizzazz by adding some greenery. Plus, there are health benefits to living in the presence of plants, so keep reading to learn all about it!

1. Tell us a bit about your blog?

I haven’t gone to the gym in a long time.  I mean a LONG time.  I was full of excuses: I’m not feeling well, I’m tired, I ate too much beforehand…the list goes on.  I dreaded going to the gym so much that I would do anything to avoid making the trek over there.  Finally, last night, I went back and it led to the creation of my new favorite word.

The second I stepped on that elliptical, I felt amazing.  I was energized, I was happy, and I felt productive.  How had I forgotten how great this felt?  That’s when I realized that I had gotten a case of gymnesia: when you haven’t gone to the gym in such a long time that you forget how great it actually feels to work out! Do you ever suffer from gymnesia?
