Is that it’s so much easier to stop than it is to start again.
I hadn’t really worked out since August. Nevermind that I know I need regular exercise to not lose myself in the fog, going to the gym was just not as important as work.
Or finishing that book.
And before you know it, I’m right back to where I started before taking on a 12 week challenge to kick my own ass.
I think it’s bullshit that it takes half as long to erase results as it does to get them in the first place. Unfortunately, my body is not interested in what I think is bullshit. That also explains why my hair is not now LONG just because I’ve decided I am over short hair.
It doesn’t take long to forget what your body is capable of. It doesn’t take long to forget how good it feels to accomplish something first thing in the morning – even if that something is simply enduring a 20 minute high intensity interval training workout on an elliptical machine.
I say all that to really just say this:
I took my ass back to the gym this morning, and it feels good.
