feeling crummy does not work.

michael moore: here's why i walk every day and why i hope you'll join me
"but the truth is, exercise does not work, diets do not work, feeling crummy does not work. nothing works. my advice: quit trying to be something you're not, be happy with the life you've been given, and just go for a pleasant walk outside. with me. wherever you are. get off the treadmill, stop drinking diet coke, throw out all the rules. it's all a scam and it conspires to keep you miserable. if it says "low-fat" or "sugar-free" or "just 100 calories!" throw it out. remember, one of the main tenets of capitalism is to have the consumer filled with fear, insecurity, envy and unhappiness so that we can spend, spend, spend our way out of it and, dammit, just feel better for a little while. but we don't, do we? the path to happiness - and deep down, we all know this -- is created by love, and being kind to oneself, sharing a sense of community with others, becoming a participant instead of a spectator, and being in motion. moving. moving around all day. lifting things, even if it's yourself."
