Excuses or challenges
Sunday, May 29, 2011
Life gets busy, there is always something that needs to be done but is that an excuse not to exercise or a challenge to overcome? I sometimes have difficulty knowing the difference but by making exercise part of my life I have no more excuses just challenges.
I love to walk, it is my mainstay of exercise and I don't have a treadmill so I always walk outside. This winter has been a challenge with record breaking snow storms, followed by the wettest spring in recent history. Yes there were days when I had excuses and not challenges but overall I became a challenge winner and this morning I had the fruit of my labour.
I pulled out a pair of shorts new from last year because the previous year's did not fit - not an uncommon occurance each passing summer. Not this summer though - last year's shorts were TOO BIG and now I need to buy new because they don't fit for the right reason.
I still have a long journey ahead of me but so long as I don't make excuses and just overcome the challenges I know I will ge there in the end.
