I had to make a quick note about this, because at my age the only way i remember anything is to write it out.
This is the simplest thing, and we have all known it forever, but unbelievably, I forget it every day.
It’s important to eat.
Now, that is the most obvious statement in the history of mankind, but it’s often tricky because we are fooled by our reserves. Or, at least I am.
Some mornings I will get up, start running, and feel great. I’ll eat like a pig afterwards, take a nap, and wake up fresh. But, some mornings I am running on empty before I start. Like today. I had been grazing this building in a state of malaise and confusion. Then I went to lunch and I’m a different person. I mean that literally.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
I have probably heard or thought that 10 thousand times in my life and I either, don’t remember it, or forget the reason WHY it is the most important meal of the day.
And why is that? Because breakfast stabilizes your body chemistry.
I know this! I believe this! But there is one problem. It’s not the best feeling to eat a big meal then workout, which means . . . I have to get up even earlier if I’m going to put this practice to work.
At the very least I just need to eat. If even just for my sanity. I’m telling you, there is something pretty cool about feeling comfortable in your own skin.
