“Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or minor self indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.”

— Ayn Rand
Novelist and Philosopher

As I think about today’s quote I realize that “minor self indulgence” is the same as immediate gratification. It is the long haul and long term success that makes us whole.

Today (well, yesterday, since it’s after midnight) I had a great workout FINALLY! Saturday and Sunday I could barely hold my heart rate at or above 110 but today I lifted and biked for 45 minutes at 130ish. I’m following Joe Friel’s strength program & focusing on the bike for the next few weeks with a smattering of running and swimming. Still a ways to go with planning, but it’s a start. Have a great day :)
