Just like Tony the Tiger used to say after eating his bowl of Frosted Flakes, we want to feel “GRRRRREAT!!!”
(Side note: Frosted Flakes are actually horrible for you, and probably one of the worst things you could eat in the morning as they have a TON of sugar and no nutritional value, but that’s besides the point.)
We don’t want to feel good, we want to feel great.
After a tough workout yesterday, I was walking out of my gym, thinking, “I feel great.” You could choose not to workout, but then you don’t get to feel great. Yes, you can have a good day skipping a workout but without that heart-pumping, muscle-engaging sweat, you don’t get the rewards of feeling great.
On your quest for feeling great, you may turn to drugs or alcohol, but that is a fleeting “great” feeling that will eventually drop flat into a state of not feeling great or even God-awful.
This may sound simple, but if you want to feel truly great you have to workout.
You deserve it.
