Action 197 - Decide.

This fitness journey seems simple enough, right? Make a decision to eat healthy, be active, and repeat consistently. Easy, peasy.

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.
I'm hungry.

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.
