The sister of one of my high school classmates, posted something on FB that made me, stop, slap my forehead and go, I got that all wrong. Her comment was that exercise, going to gym, or simply walking across the room, is not penance or punishment for something you ate, it is a celebration of being able to move your body. I had fallen into the trap of seeing my daily hour at the gym, as the price I had to pay for being indulgent.
Attitude makes a difference.
So celebrate, move, across the room, across the park, across the town. Walk, run or roll, move your body. It is the only one you have. Your body won't reward you for leaving it idle. You can't save it up, for later, it only stays active, by being active. Every small movement is a victory over stagnation.
Have you been good to yourself today?
