Pump Some Iron

I don't know about you... but since the holidays my workout routine has been seriously lacking. I'm in one of those funks - they happen occasionally, especially in the dreary-post-holiday-winter season. It's cold, messy, and dark outside, what would you rather do - indulge in a nice warm latte or go to the gym? If you're like me at all in the month of January - you picked the latte.

But... it's time to get back on track! I've got a wedding to attend next weekend, and a beach-vacation coming up in just two short months. Plus - working out is good for your career!

Seriously. When you work out - you just feel better. Like Elle Woods said in Legally Blonde: "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't kill their husbands." Well said, Miss Woods.

In all reality though - exercise really is good for your career. You feel better, you'll sleep better at night and therefore be more productive at work. You're healthier - so you miss less days of work. Plus, I think there is an admiration aspect. Coworkers admire someone who puts effort into being healthy and maintains their health with exercise - because not everyone can do it. Like the saying goes, "If it were easy, everyone would do it."

Happy lifting, ladies!
