"No longer will I sweep for you/ for I am not your broom." (Project CXC, Day XVIII)

Just a little reminder: I post nearly a photo a day over on this site here, so if you like how I think but hate all the words, go ahead and check it out.  The photo at the left appeared there today.  Plus, there's Non Sequitur titles!

I'm not crazy about it being Monday again; this is going to be a busy week for me, but I've found that when I get up in the morning and I'm tired and sad, I can count on the fact that almost as soon as I begin exercising, I'll cheer up and be happier.

That's my thought for the day today. 

Today's workout: Biking, level 5, 6 miles, 25:00
Latest Weight: 252.
Today's song that doesn't seem as though it's inspirational but the next time you're faced with something tough try saying "I AM NOT YOUR BROOM!" and see if that doesn't get you through it:

I Am Not Your Broom, They Might Be Giants.

Also: In response to PT's question in the comments yesterday: Yes, I didI always raise my hands like Rocky.  There are a few tricks you can use to make your workout easier and more pleasant.

The first is: look up.  It's a proven scientific fact that looking up gives you a positive attitude while looking down gives you a negative one.  Don't watch your feet, watch the sky.

The second is: When you finish, remember that it's a big deal.  Every time I exercise, I figure it's better than NOT exercising.  So I raise my arms in victory, every time.

I can't make sense of that picture.

I never feel better after exercising, but, then, my wife and I have sort of concluded that I don't have endorphins.

I love They Might Be Giants...

Love the pic. 252 is a good number.
