Except it isn't. It isn't easy and it isn't a one-time decision. It's actually a series of never-ending decisions.
- Am I going for my run today?
- Am I eating fast food on the way home?
- Am I sleeping in or heading to the gym?
Action 197 - Decide. That's what I had to do today after my workout. I was showered, dressed, grabbing my gym bag and getting ready to walk out to my car. Then it hit me.
There's food at home.
I want food now.
You need to get back to work.
There's the new Jack-In-The-Box Bacon Burger.
Damn you, stupid commercials.
And there it was, that moment again. The one where I have to decide what I really want. And today, what I really wanted was a healthy, delicious lunch. So I abandoned the idea of fast food and chose food worth eating.
Still, later today, I'll have to make a decision about dinner. And tomorrow, the whole process starts again. When it comes to fitness and health, there is no such thing as a done deal. There is only a constant need to decide.
