Walk Right Over That Wussy Whiney Inner Voice

Sometimes you should listen to that little voice inside you, but almost always when it's saying "oh I dunno, we don't really have to go for a walk do we?" or "okay five blocks is enough right?", it should just be ignored.

I'm not talking about the voice of your injured knee or something like that; I mean the inner grub that just wants to sit on the couch wiggling its tail at the TV and shoving nachos into its maw.

"Ewww, grubs!" I hear you say.

Damn straight. Ick.

Walk an extra 10 blocks before lunch, it won't take you long at all and it's good for you to shake a leg. While you're at it, tell the grub to shut up and choose something healthy for lunch that won't throw you into an afternoon food coma.

  1. Even the voice of the injured knee can be stretched. Maybe not 10 blocks all at once but in two different sets of 5 blocks? Knowing you have to get back can be hard to gauge when there is an injury that can make itself heard with little warning. But sitting on the couch stuffing ones face with nachos doesn’t help it either.

  2. Ah, thank you for this tip. It helped me say “oh shut up, you know you like it once we start going” to my inner wuss this morning and go for a lovely jog in the early morning sun!
