Thanks all for responding! Sorry I haven't done likewise, I've been attending a Braille Boot Camp the past couple of days. My brain has been thoroughly melted from learning the code and it has NOT been good for staying on a diet. The instructor's motto was: "Your brain needs food. The brain likes glucose. Go eat a candy bar." Really. I tried sticking with the granola bars, but that candy dish was open. Only a couple.
Anyways, I really appreciate the responses.
svelasquez- That's actually similar to what I was thinking. With all the endorphins releasing and oxygen rushing in, it's a feel good cure-all if there ever was one.
Hadena- That does sound like a lot of fun. And I like that you call it the "exercise itch." That one's going in my vocab phrases. Haha, but it's true, after I started actually using my body, it's like it reawakened, and was saying "Hey, we should really be moving around. I don't like all this sitting you're doing."
