Most of the time I read those words and I’m like “truth bomb” alert!
Some days I read those words coming from someone defending their diet as a means to an end, exercise doesn’t make you lose more and all that jazz, and I think… well, true, my scale hates it when I exercise, but what do I care about some battery operated machine that uses digital numbers to flip me off?
Most of the time, exercise for me is like breathing. Most days, I wake up and I am the Energizer Bunny incarnate. Some days, days like today, I wake up and just want to curl up with a good book, drink some coffee, call it a day. It’s chilly, been foggy all morning, perfect warm beverage with a toasty fire weather. Days like today I have to remind myself exactly why I exercise.
- Exercise makes me feel good. (Contemplating exercise, not so much, so don’t ponder, just do it.)
I’m sure there are a lot of scientificy reasons for exercise, but days like today I don’t really dig scientificy stuff, and well, I’m not bashing exercise anyways…
