Sure felt good to go for a short run and work out at Gold’s Gym yesterday.
Why? Because it’s been nearly a week. Why? Because I’ve been traveling and working hard.
Got home (from Anchorage, Alaska) about 1AM Thursday morning, got a few hours sleep and taught all day Thursday. Then taught all day yesterday (Friday).
But I refused to let another day go by without exercising. Sure, I had to get up at 4AM to run and the run wasn’t even half of my usual distance, due to time constraints. And yes, I was very tired on a Friday afternoon (from travel and a six-day work week). Did I feel like changing clothes and driving to Gold’s Gym? Nope.
So what motivated me to go the extra mile?
Simply this. I’ll be darned if I’m going to give up a decade’s work of life changing health habits because my schedule continues to be challenging. Here’s a no-brainer: our efforts to get healthy do not matter if we don’t fight hard to win the battle to STAY healthy. Ya with me?
