I am so SORE! I went running at the gym on Monday and then did (don't laugh) Billy Blanks Tae Bo Bootcamp dvd at home on Tuesday. It felt incredibly good, but today my body is protesting...loudly.
It helped me remember how good working out makes me feel mentally and emotionally also. I've been constantly tired and a little cranky lately. But during the last two days, I've had a lot of energy and have been ridiculously happy, almost to the point of giddiness...just ask Nathan, I think he's a little confused. Granted, I absolutely collapse by about 8 pm, but oh well.
Along with all of those benefits, working out also helps me to be motivated to eat better. What's the point of working out if you're going to go eat crap afterwards, right?
In other news, it's still up in the air as to whether my young life co-leader and I are going to be taking kids to Campaigner Camp at Wildhorse Canyon (the young life camp, not the casino) this weekend. Evidently it's a little iffy as to whether the road into camp (a one lane dirt road winding down into the canyon) is going to be drivable. So we're crossing our fingers that the snow holds off for another two days. Actually, evidently the concern is not so much whether we'd be able to get into camp on Friday, it's more as to whether we'd be able to get back OUT on Sunday if it snows. Not that I'd mind having to stay an extra day or so down there, I absolutely love it there!
Speaking of which, I just found a fan club for Wildhorse Canyon on Facebook.com and check out this photo that is on there. It's just gorgeous!
I really hope we get to go, I've been looking forward to this for over a month.
