Walked 15 minutes after work yesterday, and five minutes today. My back was starting to hurt by the end of the five minutes today, so I didn't keep going. More than double of my two minute daily goal! I didn't get any writing done yesterday... Read more

In some ways, I have great self confidence. In other ways, however, I struggle with belief in myself. But when I think about the God who made me, I fin... Read more

Yep... two minutes doing arms with just two pounds. Stupid easy but it keeps my streak going when I really wanted to go to bed instead. ... Read more
A Conscious Decision

Yesterday, I decided to skip my 2 minutes exercise and 10 minutes writing. I woulda/coulda/shoulda taken a two-minute walk earlier in the day. But as the day drew to a close and I considered my decision (break my streaks or get up and do these l... Read more

I took a short walk break at work this afternoon. It felt so good to stretch my legs! I was walking around an area I call "the track" because it's easy to walk laps. I was originally going to go around once. Maybe twice. It felt so nice tho... Read more

Recognizing that I have very little willpower or self-control, I borrowed an audiobook from the library: "Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength" by Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney. Fascinating material. It gives insight into so... Read more
