Am I The Cart, Or The Horse??

Monday, July 14, 2008

Sometimes, many times, the time that works out for me to workout, is when DD sleeps... around 3-4 in the afternoon. The fact that this coincides with my body's natural sleepy time in the afternoon can sometimes be tough. Sometimes, I rally: the workout gets me energized and I feel so much better afterwards. Sometimes, like today, I feel like I've hooked myself to a horse and am being dragged through the workout.

And then I realized... if that's true, who's doing the dragging? Who is the horse? Well, no one else happens to be forcing me to stand there and follow my exercise DVD... so I guess I am the horse, too. I'm making myself do this, even on a day that I feel like I'd rather curl up with a book, or take a nap. I know it's good for me, and some days, even when it's not fun, that's enough to keep me going. Seeing the scale move, knowing I'm healthier, is good motivation. So... hooray for me! For being the horse.
