I didn’t exactly reach my goal of exercising every day, but I definitely got out more than I would have if I hadn’t given this embrace a shot.  By the end of the month, I felt pretty comfortable with a 2 mile run, something I couldn’t say at all at the beginning of the month.  For the most part, I struggle with any exercise that is just for the sake of exercising.  I enjoy things like riding a bike along a nice path, mountain biking, playing ultimate frisbee, etc:  doing fun things that also just happen to be exercise.  Unfortunately though, the opportunities I have for those things isn’t enough to keep me in shape (any more).  I did notice though… that as the month went on I began to enjoy my opportunities to exercise a little bit more.  I think if I kept it up for another couple of months, I wouldn’t have to fight against the temptation to be lazy quite as much!   Or maybe not….
