I have an exercise bike. It’s in our new office / exercise room in the finished area of our basement. Now that we have finished it off, added a small heater, TV, and other cool elements, there’s no excuse for me to not use it.
And that’s sort of on purpose.
Well, everybody makes resolutions at the beginning of the year to exercise more, lose weight, get in better shape, blah blah blah.
We’ve all heard it. We’ve all done it. Very, very few have actually followed through.
I think that the beginning of the year is an arbitrary time to stop exercising. I think setting it as a big goal tied to the success of the entire year makes it a pressure filled goal that only leads to increased chance of failure.
I want to exercise. I will exercise. It’s just that I’m not going to do it with all the fanfare.
Besides, I’ve been getting lots of exercise with the various projects tied to getting all of our rooms ready. As soon as that happens, I’ll start my workout program. Chances are when I start, over half the people that resolved to do so will have already quit.
