OK – I read No Impact Man yesterday and he told of how he and his wife have lost all this weight, become more fit and trim… and I see the opposite effect happening to me.
It has been so hot here these last few months and after work instead of working outside, I plop in front of the fan and television. On the weekends I find it more enjoyable to sit inside in front of the fan than to work in the yard – though there is much work to be done. Instead of riding my bike for the short distances, I take the car… I rationalize that at 100+ degrees I don’t need to be over-exerting myself… and… the car is the only place I allow myself air conditioning. I just don’t seem to have the motivation to get off my butt.
Another issue is that I haven’t been doing as well I could or should with the locally grown and healthier foods. I had great intentions, but they all seemed to get lost.
I think I just need to give myself a bit of a pep talk.
