Let’s all be honest. Doctor’s tell us that we should exercise to be healthy. To have a healthy heart, healthy weight, etc. While all of this is true, and I respect all of it, it is not what gets me on that treadmill.
I get on a treadmill, flirt with hot yoga, lift weights, and pretend to swim laps all because I want to look gooooood. I mean gooood. Being healthy?
When I went on the bike trip, sure the adventure sounded great. But the real thing that got me on the bike? Losing all that weight I had gained when I lived in Italy. (Dear lord, I miss that gelato)
I am that shallow. My ego is a constant companion, but at least I realize it right? First step towards a cure, like an ego lobotomy?
