Exercise and Starbucks

I don't really have anything to talk about, but it was this or do dishes before leaving for church :).

Why does everyone always try to convince me that I can like exercise if I try hard enough? What if I don't want to like exercise? I mean, at this point, I'll do it because I feel like I have to and I have that infernal need to do the right thing, but it doesn't mean that I will ever truly enjoy it.

It's kind of like when I tell people I don't like anything at Starbucks and they try to convince me to try such and such a drink. They just can't help it. They want me to like something at Starbucks, as if I'm unAmerican if I don't. But what if I don't want to like anything at Starbucks? Because it saves me lots of money. I mean, if I was a mathematician (and believe me, I am not!) I could do graph upon graph of how much money I have saved over the last 10 years by NOT liking anything at Starbucks. Well, if we want to get technical, I probably didn't actually save any of that money, I just spent it elsewhere, but that is so not my point!

So, please don't try to make me like exercise. And don't tell me there is the perfect drink for me at Starbucks. OK?! :)

HAHA! Why do people think if you are the track coach, that you run and are in shape yourself. HMMM...same concept, though I like exercise--i just don't have the endurance built up to keep going.

There is NOTHING good at Starbucks. Yuck! You are totally normal in that regard. :)

The biggest shock for me is that you had time to write BEFORE church.

Super woman, you are!
