The laziness of not working out

Let me get this straight: I am a morning person. I love to get up early, and when I do, I feel energetic and happy all day. When it’s getting dark outside, I start yawning, and I know I want to go to bed. It’s only the lure of the series I’m following that keeps me from turning in at eight.

And I love working out. I love planning it, but certainly also don’t mind working up a sweat. It’s one reason to feel good about myself all day long. (One of the other reasons is: solving some nice programming-related problem, in case you started wondering whether I really am that computer nerd that you thought me to be). It’s like that extra dose of energy.

And I love working out in the mornings, no doubt. No-one else is awake yet, nobody to distract me from my goals (and nobody to judge my actually following my plan or not, so it’s really all my own ***), the whole day still before me after I shower, watching the faces in the train to work, being all sleepy whereas I’m fully awake.

Then why, I ask you, why did I sleep in again this morning, preferring the bed to the floor, the lying down to the pushing up, the waking late to the jumping around?

One missed opportunity. But there’s still tomorrow to catch up.

  1. Your will save gets penalties when you are in a warm and comfortable bed. Also, you used to be a cleric with a high will save and are now following the path of the barbarian. Barbarians are not know for their high will saves. That means you only have your wisdom to depend on. I’m sorry for your loss.

    • Heh, a wise barbarian. Right now I envision Frida reading her books 🙂
      Actually, my goal might be more along the lines of the visibly muscular cleric. Seeing as I’m dividing the world into bugs and features here at my desk… And wasn’t Bear also a writer?

      • I forgot what Bear did for a living… But if you’re wise, then get yourself out of bed and start moving!!!
        also… your subtitle is wrong. It should be: When irritating close friends ARE not enough!

  2. You’ll make up for it tomorrow….or if you’re like me you’ll feel bad about it and make it up this afternoon/evening!

    • Thanks, yes I will 🙂
      In a quick glance (I’m at the office right now, waiting for something to compile) your blog looks motivating to me, so I might use it as an extra push-out-of-bed in the mornings!

      • That’s AWEsome!! Feel free to stop by anytime…
