I was reminded of that fact this morning. Actually, I've been reminded of it every morning for two weeks now. Yes, I'm doing exercise stuff in the mornings. Yes, I may have lost my mind a bit. But thanks to that extra daily activity, I haven't gained any weight yet this holiday season, so I suppose it's a good thing. My clothes still fit.
It's not that I don't like activity. I enjoy going for a long walk. I enjoy going ice skating. I like playing outside with my dog. I don't mind moving around, really. It's just... exercise. Blah. I get all hot and sweaty and out of breath. I feel icky and tired afterwards. During the exercise, I'm not a happy camper.
However, I have noticed that it makes me a bit more awake by the time I get to work, and I think I might be a little more focused, and I definitely have more energy. So it's a trade-off. It's one I'm willing to make, for now. We'll see if my will power extends beyond the holidays.
