Yesterday I gave up on exercising because I couldn’t be bothered
Thing is I’d already made the decision earlier in the day that I was going for a run
The sun was shining
I knew where I was going
I’d gotten changed
I’d gotten out the front door I’d already started Yet after jogging for about 90 seconds down my street
My mind just said why are you doing this?
My body said it wasn’t feeling that fresh because I’d already been on my feet all day
So I ground to a halt, turned around an started walking home
After about 50 meters of walking I stopped again and just stood there
If you’d been on my street yesterday you would have wondered what the hell I was doing
I was actually stood on the spot looking back towards my house then turning looking the other way further down the road
Right there I was on the edge
Weighing up the pros and cons of exercising versus not
Probably surprising for you to hear this, right?
I mean surely for someone thats been exercising their whole life it’s easy, yeah?
We’re all so bloody happy clappy and motivated aren’t we?
Everything always frickin ‘awesome man’ (Cue cheeeeeesy American accent).
What a load of BS!
Let me tell you that most ‘fitness people’ fake it some of the time. It can be a total front.
Sometimes, just like any regular person, they can’t be arsed exercising and would rather sit on the sofa, watching tv, munchin g on something tasty (not chicken and broccoli). Lindt Lindor Chocolates would be my treat of choice
That’s what I felt like when I stopped running yesterday
So did I turn left and start running again or turn right and go home for a pig out on the sofa??
I’ll tell you tomorrow
