Red face reality check!

I walked to my campus this morning to get some information on how to post ads that would reach the students. Toward the end of the approach to the parking lot there's a steep incline that goes on for about 30 feet.

I reached the top of that little hill and congratulated myself that I wasn't half so out-of-breath as I had been at the end of last semester. Then I remembered that last semester I was dragging a large bag full of books and my laptop.

Ahwell. I'm just proud of myself for working up a sweat this morning when I could have taken it easy all day.

Not only did you tackle the hill and beat it, but you recognize that you need to tackle the challenges. Our biggest battle is often inertia. You are beating that. Keep up the good work!
