As I do my first ( and probably last) post from the treadmill, I am thinking of how often we fool ourselves to get through life. Or at least I do. The human brain’s funny that way. It’s like captives who develop coping mechanisms. About 95% of my workouts involve trickery…”only 5 more minutes…” or “just get to the 2 mile mark & then you can leave.” That kind of thing.

That’s why low expectations are so important too…they fool you into feeling better about whatever it is…something to think about: high standards and a keen sense of what’s real get you nowhere! Lie to me
