Jack Sh*T at http://jackfit.blogspot.com/ asked readers to write on a note card their "Why I Do This Here". Here is mine.
In case you can't read it, it says "So that my mind, body, heart, hopes and dreams are all in sync ... P.S. No more man belly".
It's hard to describe what I mean, but I'll try with an examples. When I drive around town and see someone running I think "great job, should be me". Well if everything was in sync I would be running. When I hear about a family going hiking and camping I get green with envy. If I was in sync I would be doing that myself. Although that would take a bit more effort since I will have to get the Mr. on board there. I want to be going and doing, be the person I want to be. Find the "fit girl" inside my mind and have her out in the world.
