    How to Force Yourself to Do Stuff You Don’t Want to Do

    Are you tired of doing work? Do you procrastinate even the simplest of things? Are you behind in your schoolwork? Are you filled with a constant need to take a mf-ing nap? If you responded yes to any of these questions, then you may be entitled to compensation. And by compensation, I mean this blog post.

Then, I got stitches on my knee and couldn’t do any “strenuous exercise” for two weeks. Then, I was so intimidated by the bike and the thought of my hard workout distressed me. And I was totally afraid of busting my stitches wide open. I mean, that’s the stuff of nightmares, at least it is for me.  Today I rode in a little over a month. It felt really good. I can feel my body getting stronger. I’m feeling good.  Peloton has given me an…
