Beginning again with the "Faithfully Fit". Hard to blog it because it is a 40 day journey
You would think that would be easy, right? I mean Day 1, Day 2. But my mind takes takes time to process so it turns into a 60 day journey.
So far I am to examine my feelings about this journey and I must admit that feeling is one of apprehension. Didn't stick to it the first time so will I this time? I hope so.
I could blame others for the shape I'm in but I'm the one who determines what I put in my mouth or at least how much. I mean I have this wonderful older neighbor who cooks me supper so I can't control what I eat without having to spend money I don't have so I've determined I can control how much I eat.
Yup, I take ownership of the shape I'm in.
The 3rd day has me look at control. I have no say in the family I was born into, the places I've lived up until now or things of the past but I can certainly determine what I will put into my body and if I will exercise it or not. I don't know how long I will live, when the world might end, when my brother might die or even what my next job will be but I can certainly pledge myself to a minimum of 15 fitness minutes a day, right?
So from this day forward, unless illness or something prevents me, I pledge to give my body a minimum of 15 min a day. I'm working on portion control and making healthy choices 80% of the time. I'm giving myself 20% so I will succeed!
I'm ready for the journey and who knows maybe I will inspire someone else along the way!
