Why is it so difficult to exercise? I have no problem playing basketball a night or two a week, but I find it really tough to jog on my treadmill that’s less than 50 feet from my computer.
When I’ve paid for a gym membership I’ve been more motivated to work out. Maybe it’s knowing that I’m paying for something and I feel like I just get my money’s worth.
I’ve radically changed my diet over the past 18 months to the point where my body feels much better than it did before. I no longer stuff my stomach full of starchy and sugary foods. Kim steams a lot more vegetables and we are eating a lot more varieties of fish than we ever have.
I’ve noticed that our kids learn to like or dislike the same foods we do. When we eat healthy, they tend to do the same.
It’s a new year and I’m going to get in the habit on jogging on my treadmill at least three times a week, or on those days I don’t play basketball. I’m going to keep track of my workouts in Google Docs. I need to get the point where it feels weird when I don’t exercise. The opposite of that is true today and I will change that.
Although my treadmill provides a good workout, it’s not the most stimulating. I’d like to find a trail here in Auburn, WA where I can walk or job occasionally. I will start looking around, but until then, it’s off to the treadmill!
