For years your teachers told you to settle down and sit still.... YOU CAN STOP NOW!
This is one of the SparkPeople funnies that I relate to the most. Isn't that the truth tho? As kids we moved fast and furious, but didn't call it exercise. We were running, jumping, playing and now its like we have a bowling ball attached at the hip. At least for me that is.
On any given day, I would rather just sit there, and think about exercising, preferring to look at tv or anything else. Everytime I do get out and do something like take a walk or exercise, I feel great; awesome in fact, so why don't I "just do it"? without having to convince myself, I should. For example, I woke up in plenty of time to take a 10 minute brisk walk. I laid in bed pondering until I had to get up before I was going to be late for work. That has been puzzling me for a while now. I don't know and I don't want to waste this blogs on excuses. We all know that routine, don't we? I am very cognoscente that there is a void there and it boils down to my health and wellbeing or just sitting there continuing to ponder and stress over.
I am hopeful that doing situps will just one day become second nature to me and doing jumping jacks and eating right as well. I want to be an example for my kids, I want to do it for me, but what is holding me back. I do it (not as often as I should), but I do it. That for now is going to have to be good enuff that I am going thru the motions. I hope things change and I know the bottom line, no one can change it but me. I'll start by taking a break and going for that 10 minute walk. At least its a start. Here's wishing all of you who share this issue, progress in this area, as well as myself.
