Need exercise?

Does anyone else feel like they NEED exercise? When I skip a few days at the gym I notice that my emotional state is not the same as when I go consistently. I cry more or get fussy about small things. Does anyone else do this?

Hah, that's why they call it the "runner's high". You get addicted to the endorphins released through exercise.

I'm the same. I usually squeeze in at least a 10 min run daily simply because it keeps me feeling emotionally balanced.

Unforunately I have developed that addiction. God Bless it is a good one!

Yeah, I tried (I mean I PLANNED) to watch TV on Wednesday night and I ended up doing a 40 min bike ride and 45 minutes of toning exercises instead.
