A little inspiration:
Good for the body is the work of the body, good for the soul the work of the soul, and good for either the work of the other. ~ Henry David Thoreau
I totally understand what you are saying. As a Social Worker I often have to tell others who come to me for advice to exercise and eat better... and feel like such a hypocrite when I do. Now that I have started practicing what I preach, I think it will become much easier to motivate by example.
