|I know you're jealous. Just roll with it.|
Recently I noticed that no matter how many calendars I make, motivational books I read or self-interventions I conduct, I cannot drag my booty out of bed to exercise before work. This means the only time I can work out is after I finish an 8 to 10 hour day at the office. Even if I don't have anything planned for that evening, it is hard to garner the motivation to jump on the elliptical more than twice a week.
No, I don't think my little bike pedals will ever replace the benefits of an actual sweat-inducing workout, but seriously it has got to be better than sitting idly all day, right? If nothing else it keeps me more awake and alert at my desk. Gets the blood flowing. I am aware taking a lap around the office would probably do the same thing, but people start to wonder what you are doing all day if you are constantly taking a stroll through human resources. So instead I will sit at my desk and play this music in my head.
PS. I almost broke my own rule this week. I swore I would never post about work, and I nearly did. Don't worry I saved myself, so instead of kitchy anecdote about SEO and workplace understandings I leave you with this bit of trivia. It takes approximately four phone calls and 27 emails to get the Wall Street Journal to respond to your request. Also it is against their policy to add link-backs to any of their articles. Save yourself the trouble. If you are quoted in WSJ, revel in it; however, they will never give you a link -- what punks.
