It seems to me that I am allowing myself to be too easily distracted from my goal. For instance, I use an armband to hold my smart phone when I go walking. I use an app on my phone to track my distance and calories burned. The armband that I use comes with a neoprene strap that is removable so that the holder can be used with a belt. Now the last time I used the armband I noticed that it was ripping where the D-ring was sewed on. So what do I do? I stopped exercising, that's what. I allowed that small thing to totally derail me. Today I made a new strap out of material from an old t-shirt. I used the old strap for the pattern and used the velcro pieces from it on the new strap. When I was done, the first thing I thought was that now I could go walking again. Like I said, it's the little things the get me off track.
