It's Well Worth the Time and Effort

Like perhaps some of my blog readers, I am a weight lifter. I am not particularly good at it, and I am certainly not genetically gifted. I am, however, stubborn and nerdy, and possibly lazy, though I prefer to think of myself as efficient. Three times a week the gym beckons to me, and I obey its call joyfully. 

I love every minute of a workout, especially when I'm trying something new, as with today's variation of an incline bench press (the "incline" is so minor you can barely notice it). 

Today I was reminded that I don't have to lift. I get to. And if I can do it, anyone can. That includes you. Admittedly, it's hard work. But it's not impossible. When you consider the alternative, it's well worth the time and effort involved.
