Wasn't Expecting That

Day 4 at the gym....getting easier to get out of bed.  Avril doesn't have to text me orders to get up.  Excited to get up all the way until I walked out the front door.  It is going to be hard to not only leave my bed but walk out in below freezing temperatures.  Thinking this may be the year I can justify a remote car start for the Suburban.

I will write more about this tonight, but I want to share a short clip of the class Avril and I stumbled upon today.  It is Body Pump.

Even as I was thrilled to push my body through the exercises, something different was happening.  My emotionally body responded in ways I wasn't prepared for.  There I was in the back of the room, tears streaming down my face.  Not is a blubbering, sobbing way.  It felt more like a cleanse. 

I have to get back to work, on my lunch break, but I wanted to get this out there and hear from anyone else that may have the same thing happen.  I have some ideas about why this happened but I am new to all of this.  What do you think?

Do you ever cry through a really great physical workout?
