The title of this blog is dedicated to today, Wednesday, November 26, 2014. It’s the first day all year that the blog is coming out later than its normally-scheduled 10 a.m. Pacific time slot. And that’s because we just crawled off a redeye flight from…wait for it…Maui! And I was exhausted. And so I went off to sleep. And the alarm rang for me to get up at 9:30 to write the blog.
And then I dreamt that the blog was late (which, of course, it was), and that got me up out of bed a couple of hours later (which, of course, is right now).
Here’s the point: When I exercise regularly – when I do anything regularly that’s “good for me” – I really, really miss it when I don’t do it. It gnaws at me. I think about it all day. I say, whoa, I really need to get that workout in.
That’s what a regular routine does. It pulls me back when I stray – and it does it quickly.
Just another fitness-related benefit that I’m grateful for in this Thanksgiving Week. Now get out there and get your pre-turkey/Tofurkey workout on.
