All of everyone I know anytime I ever make anything.
|If you think you’re too busy to exercise, try this experiment: For one day, schedule a time to work out, and then stick to it—even if you can exercise for only 10 minutes. “At the end of that day, ask yourself if you were any less productive than usual,” The answer will probably be no—and your favorite excuse will be gone.||John Jakicic, Ph.D., Exercise Psychologist,Brown University School of Medicine. -MensHealth.Com (via fitnessgifs4u)
I’ve got to tell you, there have been so many days when I really should have eaten that cookie and shouldn’t have run that extra mile.
—> Food is not inherently bad
—> Exercise is not inherently good
Sometimes you’re going to need the extra bit of sugar, calories or comfort that comes from a cookie, and that’s fine. Recognize that food has value and can be a wonderful thing! You need to eat in order to live, and sometimes eating involves picking up a cookie. That is not something that you should always feel guilty about or ashamed of. If you continually are associating certain foods with feelings of shame, then it’s time to talk to a counselor - You may be developing an eating disorder.
And exercise is not always going to benefit you. Sometimes, running that mile will make your body exhausted. It will hurt your feet, over-stress your muscles, wear out your shoes, make you nauseous and put you in an awful mood. It’s so important to stay critically conscious of how your exercise regime is affecting you. Doing more doesn’t mean that you’re being healthy or that you’re going to be happy. If you do regret that mile (and at some point in life, you will), then it’s important to remind yourself that it’s okay to slow down sometimes. You need rest days. Admitting that is not weakness, it’s maturity.
I was running yesterday and I thought “Man, my legs are getting so tired.” then I remembered “Tumblr says when your legs give up, run with your heart.” and to be quite honest, my heart said “That shit ain’t happening.”
So I decided to write this.
So I wanted to share the way I get my ass around…
More food porn from our house.
