"Lies!" you say. "If it sounds too good to be true it probably is!" Well yes, my wise fitness-y grasshopper, usually that is the case. But this time, it's as easy as it sounds.
|OK Homer, but give me 10 minutes on the treadmill first!|
You see, one of my favorite things about exercise, in addition to making us fit into our clothes, is that once you start doing it, your body releases these nifty little hormones called endorphins. Know when else your brain lets these fun little chemicals out to play? During an orgasm. So it's true, exercise really IS as good as sex!
My point is: once you start doing a physical activity, even if you try to make excuses to yourself that would put a 7th grader who forgot to do his homework to shame, chances are you'll keep going for longer than your initial 10 minutes. You'll be hitting your running stride, checking out that cute girl/guy on the treadmill next to you, and next thing you know 10 minutes are up. And since you've already driven to the gym/hiking path/pool, found parking, and dealt with that annoying guy at the front desk who always calls you "bruh", you might as well continue kicking ass and taking names for another 20 minutes or more.
Everyone can find 10 minutes. And heck, if you need another reason to give it a shot think about this: every 10 minutes you exercise, somewhere a Kardashian loses it (and it's crappy weight loss product endorsement) wings.
Don't let the terrorists win.
