Hey, I'm a fat guy trying to learn a love for exercise before Jan 1st, 2011. When I started this blog, there were 301 days left in 2010. Join me as I try to become a life long lover of heart pumpin, sweat dripping exercise. (or I die trying )
see my first blog entry here... www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
Day 7,8,9 and 10 of 301. (March 12 - 15, 2010)
A fat guy gets lazy
Observation – “A distracted existence leads us to no goal.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I have been distracted these last few days. No Blog, no spark people, no diet – no exercise. The tendonitis in my foot really threw off my mental focus on dieting and exercise. It was like the universe snuck up from behind and sucker punched me while I was doing a good thing. Why is it that when I encounter a set back like tendonitis, instead of digging in and redoubling my efforts, I quit, and use the set back as an excuse to over indulge?
Time to ask some questions.
Hey Mike, do you want to be overweight? No.
Do you want to be out of shape? No.
Do like that you get out of breath when you walk up a flight of stairs? Not really.
Are you fond of that giggly section on your back? Yuck.
Were you making progress before your foot was injured? Yup.
What are you going to do now…?
Bottom line – It will be really hard to write a blog about finding a love for exercise if I don’t exercise.
Today’s exercise blog entry… no entry today.
Today’s motivation – Do something differently than I have done it before the blog. Where I would have stopped I would like to see new commitment.
