Exercise is not optional
The funny thing about exercise is that the more I do, the better I eat. Conversely, the less I exercise, the worse I eat. The result is NOT PRETTY.
So I’ve been back in the gym a whole two days now and to keep me going I have posted this over my desk – a little mantra from a November 2010 post:
I don’t have to be inspired
I don’t have to be motivated
I don’t have to feel like it
I don’t have to love it
I just have to do it
Yesterday I ran ¾ of the way around the building. Today I ran all the way around the building, then turned around and walked the whole way around again before I went inside.
I like progress. Even tiny, difficult to measure progress.
So – see you in the gym tomorrow!
And the next day.
