Lunging in Tears

I won’t tell you that exercises actually help boost our mood by stimulating our glands to release “happy hormones”. I won’t tell you that coz I know you wouldn’t care. So what, right? We don’t want to do that much effort just so we can juice out some happy hormones from our stupid glands!

I actually hate my lazy glands! If it weren’t for them I won’t be struggling like this! So thinking about them giving me some happy hormones if I do some workout doesn’t really motivate me.

But, don’t you wanna look prettier?
Don’t you wanna have a bubble butt? Or if you already have one, don’t you want it to be firm and toned?
I’m sure you do!

How about looking like a zombie with pale skin and dark circles around your eyes? Do you want that?
I’m sure you don’t!

What triggers our depression? A sad event, an unacceptable defeat, looking at our ugly faces in the mirror? LOL
Imagine how you would feel if you didn’t look like a zombie!

We all just want to look good or even better!
I’m not saying that you are fat and ugly.
And I know that you just wanna drown yourself in tears.
But you have to lift that ass and go do some exercises so you can take better selfies!

Before my depression I almost always took photos of myself. It was actually difficult to choose which among those shots to post on social media coz they’re all pretty! That was my struggle then. *wink

Now, I take multiple photos just to fill my “deleted photos” album. It became so hard to find a decent shot. And it made me feel ugly, which made me even more depressed!

I’ve gathered some simple exercises that you can do at home, inside your room or even in the comfort room. I’m assuming you have enough space for a dead person sprawled across your bedroom or comfort room floor. If it does, then, Hooray! You can do these inside your favorite crying place; and do them while crying!

  1. Side planche
  2. Sit ups
  3. Static Lunges
  4. Leg raises
  5. Bicycle crunches
  6. Squat jumps
  7. Modified push-ups

Do 3 sets of each exercise with 8-12 repetitions per set.
For the side planche – stay in that position for 3 sets with 30-60seconds in every set.

Congratulations, you just completed a whole body work-out during your crying session! Wasn’t that fun??
Now, look in the mirror. What do you see?
Messy hair; swollen, red eyes; pinkish cheeks; sweaty face; toned butt (not yet? Be patient. You’ll get there).
But, do you NOW like what you see? Does it make you happy?

Come to think of it. Do you like what you see in the mirror now because you literally look prettier, or do you find yourself prettier now because of the happy hormones that the exercises gave you?

It doesn’t matter. The important thing is, you look prettier and you feel better. =)
