Sometimes it's not about health, being fit or building muscle... It's just therapy.
This is the hangar at my job...I have spent A LOT of time in this room.
Most of the time, I use this room for my workouts-whether it is the morning, afternoon or evening...I have probably worked out in this room every hour of the 24 hour day depending on flights and sleep.
But other times, when I have already done my workout for the day, I come in here when I am overwhelmed, stressed, need a break, think, stretch...it's a place where I can crank up the music and decompress (when no one else is in here, which is hardly ever). A lot of times when I am decompressing, I CHOOSE to do an additional workout-not because I want to burn calories or get stronger or as a "punishment" for what I ate, but because it makes me FEEL good!
It's been a busy day and all day long, there has been popcorn (my daughter is selling it) and chocolate bars on the table...and all day long they have been calling my name! So after a while, when I just couldn't take it any longer...I went to the hangar... And worked my butt off for 25 minutes...not so that I CAN have whatever I want to eat...but because I know that the exercise I did makes me feel better than the popcorn and the chocolate could ever do.
And although I don't deprive myself of these things most of the time, I didn't find it as a good "eating opportunity". It's one of the principles that we will follow in my next challenge group, along with "water first, veggies most", and "keep two hands on the wheel", and "one bite to taste". All of these have helped me keep (and lose weight) when I am NOT exercising!
