You will always feel better afterwards

On days that I don't feel like exercising or think that I don't have time, I remember that I ALWAYS feel better after I've exercised. I never regret taking that 30-60 mins to exercise but I've often regretted skipping it.

Every Week I Try To Change My Routine Just A Little

Get your water in

I take a bottle of water with me and when ever I hit a red light I sip on it until the light turns green. I usually finish a bottle on the way to work and on the way home from work.

To Thine Own Self be True~ Hamlet

In the face of adversity, follow Hamlet's wisdom of being true to yourself and your dreams. Follow through and never give up. Always persist even with the din of naysayers trying to drown out your inner voice~ to them turn a deaf ear and persist in spite of the odds. Dreams still do come true.
