Break Through

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

I have a little story. It is actually really big for me. Last night I was feeling burnt out from the day, and getting ready for a school conference call. It was after 7pm. I had put off my workout all day. I told my partner that I was feeling badly about that.

Then I made a decision. It did not matter if I did it before class or after class. Either way, I was NOT going to bed without at least a short workout. And I did follow through. And it was only 15 minutes on the bike. But the length of the workout was of no issue last night. The fact is I stayed tough, and kept the promise I made to myself. I will remember this on my journey.

    Keeping a daily exercise commitment has been Hugh for me. There are days when I don't want to but I get up and go anyway. Those are the days that mean the most. Someday, I think I will want to exercise because I am proud of how it makes me feel and how easily I can move. Feeling fit and healthy is the best antidote for I don't want too. In the meantime, we've got our daily commitment.

    That is great! And it makes you realize that you can do even just a short workout, even if you're feeling bad or tired or sick. I've been trying to do 10 minutes (at least) every day and the days when I don't feel like it are the days I feel awesome.

    Yes! No, the length does not matter. In fact, the overall goal for SP is 10 minutes a day of exercise, so I try to do at least that much. Some days are harder than others, but if I can't walk or do my step aerobics, I try to at least do my fitness bands for 10 minutes.
