|"Me, Pre-Work-out, getting ready to |
perform the Excorism"
I have always known that physical activity was good for you, and also great for diabetes long term control and health prevention. But lately, I exercise for a completely different reason.
I totally do it (exercise) to clear my head, it is absolutely, unequivocally the best medicine to increase your mood. Sex is good too, but next to that exercise is the only activity that release all those cool natural hormones. Endorphins, Serotonin, etc....I am not a biochemist I just know physical activity totally Rocks.

the Tiny Type 1, also exercising"
Last night my daughter was a bear (My oldest Type 1) and she complained about feeling tired, no energy.
So I said to her, "Lets go for a workout" She said, "Okay" I think I should really emphasize that her mood was really labile, exceedingly grumpy, yelling, eye rolling, you get it....Anyway
We proceeded down stairs to the home gym or I guess now it can be referred to as the family den, not my man cave.
Her and I blasted through 6 - 6 min rounds. Like sprints, jogs, walks, elliptical, boxing and some medicine ball training. I knew what the activity was doing for my mood but I asked her how she felt after, and she said "I feel great!" So good she actually decided to vacuum her room(unheard of unless delegated by us), do some laundry, and not do any more yelling.
Her mood was totally reversed, and we got to hang out (bonding time!) We chatted about her diabetes control, diet, exercise, managing, and how she was doing. Good bonding.
Even though our heads weren't spinning around, there was no projectile vomiting, and we really weren't possessed; exercise is a definite mood booster, and head clearer!
What is your exercise regime?
