I've been dancing around the subject of getting serious with my fitness for the past few weeks, playing games, dipping my toes in the water and backing away.
The spring weather we've had here over the past week though has straightened my priorities out. It seems to have had a similar effect on my wife. So we're both putting aside the half-ass attempts and getting more serious -- with what has worked for us in the past and what we know we have to do now.
In a game of cards, there's a time when you say, ok, this hand is worth sticking with for a while, let's see where it goes. You decide you're okay with doing more than just anteing up and folding when things get serious.
It's time to put a few more chips at risk and let your opponents know you're serious.
So I'm raising.
