My "Trouble Goal"
Monday, April 17, 2006
Catching up on my action steps, one of them says I'm supposed to write about my "trouble goal" in my journal. It's not at all hard for me to figure out my trouble goal - it's exercise.
I know I should exercise. There are so many different ways to do it! Most times, once I get started I actually enjoy it, but the trouble is just that - getting started. I'm lazy, and I can think of about a million and two things I'd rather be doing than working out.
There are a lot of things I don't mind doing, and a lot of things I like to do. The ones I like all involve being outdoors and away from home, so I don't do them very often - things like hiking, canoeing, swimming, and cross-country skiing. The ones I don't mind, I can do at home - things like walking the dogs, videos, and the Nordictrak.
I have a plan...DH just started a new job. He'll have to leave for work at 5:30 every morning. This means I don't have to worry about being quite for fear I'll wake him, so I can get up at 5:15 (I do that anyway, I get up really early and sit around. I'm weird that way) and work out. I'll have to ease my way into it - I often get nauseous when I exercise in the morning, but I think if I get my body in the habit then I'll be ok. I can do a DVD, or get on the NordicTrak.
This starts tomorrow. I *will* get past my trouble goal!
