5 G's a Day Keeps Sidelining Away
Monday, June 23, 2014
We had my husband's family reunion this past weekend in Star Valley, Wyoming and as usual I watched 90% of the action instead of participating in it. As I watched my sister-in-law who is very active, eats healthy and exercises daily, I realized I want to be active just like her. I want to be the one who goes on the river run, goes on the hikes, goes swimming and plays with her grand kids in the pool. It's ridiculous to sit on the sideline instead of doing something so I can join in the action. I had my personal epiphany this weekend. I have 53 weeks to get myself into shape so that next year it will be me, joining with her, in all the activities. I have a new goal to work towards. I have pictures to help me visualize my goal and to keep me motivated. It's time to quit sitting around feeling sorry for myself. It's time to implement the five G's. They are: 1. get off the couch 2. get active & move more 3. get exercising daily 4. get eating right and 5. get more sleep. With these five G's, I will reach my goal!
