I was getting ready to head to the airport and noticed my backpack was feeling really heavy. It has two computers, all my clothes, an iPad, all the charges, etc. I decided to weigh it and sure enough it was just a hair under twenty pounds in total. I thought to myself, “That’s a lot of weight to be hauling around an airport for a couple hours in each direction!” Yet just a few months ago I was carrying an extra fifteen extra pounds of fat on my body each and every day. Hopefully as I carry forward having my fitness routine dialed I’ll be carrying around twenty five pounds less weight than I was at the beginning of the year. There’s obviously a toll for carrying around all that extra weight. Plopping twenty pounds on your back to experience that briefly is an interesting exercise in reminding ourselves of that.
