Back on the bandwagon
After my surgery in November I wasn’t able to workout for a couple of weeks. That only served to prove the one thing that people always say about exercise, once you stop working out regularly, it’s incredibly hard to get start up again. It really is. Between a case of the flu and holidays it seemed like there were a ton of reasons why I couldn’t go workout, so I didn’t. After the new year though, Angela and I both agreed that we simply had to start going again, and we have.
We’ve been going 3 times a week for a couple of weeks now and I can’t tell you how much better I feel. I have a ton more energy, my thinking is much more focused, my creative juices are flowing again.
If nothing else, I’m typing this up to remind myself of why I don’t want to get out of the habit, or if circumstances force me to do that, to remember why I want to get back in the habit as quickly as possible!

Mike, major kudos for making the time to go three times a week, I go twice weekly when 100% fit. All the positive effects you have listed might be the spur to make me go a third time. On the one hand those people are right, stopping and starting is difficult but last Christmas I knew I didn’t want to finish the holidays overweight, so I worked rather than taking vaction time, didn’t scoff for the sake of the season and hit the gym at work 27th December. One month to the day and I’m glad I only dropped one session, but will gladly make it up next week!
