Who am I?

Friday, February 29, 2008

I don’t really know what to write about this morning. Sometimes that happens at the end of the week. In order to spare you from reading something boring, I found a cool poem:

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or your heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me.
For I can do them quickly, correctly and profitably.
I am easily managed, just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine though I work with the precision of a machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done.
Educate me.
Train me.
Lead me.
Reward me.
And I will then...do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a Habit.

Exercise can be a habit. Yesterday I did not feel like going to the gym. I was really tired, my stomach wasn't enjoying the snack I had before going to the gym either. Because exercise is a habit I went and I felt incredibly better after I left. I walked out of that gym as a different person, thank God! Habits definately can be used for our good. Be determined to use exercise and other healthy habits to your advantage! P.S.: I love Richard Simmons. He's Mr. Motivation and he's funny!

I know my blog does not allow comments so I decided to take occasional polls. You can vote for the first one now. It’s about the number of diets we’ve experimented with. I plan on sharing the results along with my thoughts on the subject next week. Have an awesome weekend and thanks for reading Simply Cintia.
