Cat gave me the idea for this post. She blogged that "You'll never regret the workout you did." How about the one we didn't do?
Many of my regrets are over things I didn't do rather than over things that I have done.
eat right today
drink enough water
say "I'm sorry"
clean the house
get some yard work done
spend some time in prayer
reach a goal that was completely reachable
send a card to someone
give my best effort at work
I have never come out of the gym and thought to myself, "I wish I hadn't done that."
The next morning after a day of eating right I haven't said, "Well, that won't happen again - what was I thinking?"
I have never felt worse after apologizing.
Maybe if we kept in mind that we will regret not exercising and get our workout done - same for the eating and the drinking of the water and all the other things on the list. You can probably add some of your own.
I would regret still weighing 230 lb.
