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

Every day.

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.
