Each Monday (or at least once a month, as it has been going this year), I write a Motivation Monday post, which is to help motivate me and you in terms of physical well-being, both diet and exercise. For 2011, I also am including a “no” and a “yes” to help motivate us toward being physically healthy.
No to driving to work at the library when the weather is nice
I’ve said this previously, but now it’s time to carry through on it, especially as the weather around my “neck of the woods” actually is becoming nice enough to be able to walk to work. I will begin implementing this tomorrow — of course, if the weather is nice…which as you might read in the next section, it’s not supposed to be. 😦
yes to mowing the lawn later this morning
For the short term, I am saying yes to mowing the lawn later this morning, not just because it’s long overdue and it’s supposed to rain the rest of the week, but also because it provides a little bit of a workout. It only takes about an hour, but usually by the end of it I’m covered in sweat. So that can’t be a bad thing. Why I’m committing to later this morning is because according to the National Weather Service, there’s a 40 percent chance of rain after 2 p.m.
Today’s Moment of Zen from the Eddie Murphy/Arsenio Hall movie Coming To America, which I was reminded of last night in a Twitter conversation (“Whatever you like”):
Today’s title inspired by Rufus Thomas’s “Walking the Dog.”
