There's no question

I've probably gained 20 lbs over the past 5 years, and when I complain about gaining a few pounds it's if my complaining about it will shed a few pounds off. But there is no question as to how my little gut is growing... I had breakfast (bowl of cereal) and lunch (salad and some chicken stuff with a cookie for desert) AT MY DESK! Mind you, my kitchen isn't far from my office (about 20 steps), so the fact that I even eat in my office is a bit ridiculous.
Is this what it means to "work hard"? What I should be focusing on is working SMART rather than "hard." When it comes down to it, we are all looking to find balance. I want to make a lot of money, be in good shape, have a great relationship with my wife and have plenty of time to play with my boys. Sounds cliche, but it's true.
I went running a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't far (at all!) but it felt good and I felt like I was going to die a few times all at the same time. The amazing thing is that my back has felt better just from that one run a few weeks ago. Imagine if I ran every morning!
