Minor psychological dilemma  
I can't decide whether it's a good or a bad thing that I feel better as a person if I manage to do some exercise. I mean, it forces me into doing it even if I don't want to but...

Today I spent the whole day around Chris's house with Heidi, sanding doors and other various things covered in varnish. This is hardly easy non-physical work. Yet I still felt the need to come home and do something (a 30 minutes couch to 5k session then 15 mins of abs).

And I definitely felt better for it emotionally. My body so didn't thank me though.

wow you're a far better person than me.

The only exercise I do, it is with my mind.

But there's also a kind of sense of satisfaction when you rest after having exercised. Like being sated.

I really don't enjoy cardio to be honest but I feel like I have to.

well, exercise will release endorphins that create a sense of well-being and satisfaction (I think there's a reason why I have most of my religious experiences on top of hills having just climbed them :P).

That is true. And I wish there were more climbable hills around here - I might enjoy that more.

I also wish I actually enjoyed cardio instead of having to force myself with thoughts of fat thighs. Stupid genetics.
