Because I can
Sunday, July 25, 2010
Someone asked me the other day why I ran up the stairs. I grinned and said 'because I can." And that is the simple truth. I go out of my way to go the 'extra mile' because I can. I can walk and swim without pain and discomfort. I can sit in a restaurant booth comfortably.
I can Kayak for four hours and be tired but feel good. I have little if any back pain any more and take a lot fewer medications. Eating healthy is not the end but the means. As you travel along with Sparkpeople think of what you can do not what you can't do. I can do one pushup
not I can't do pushups. I can walk for 5 minutes not I can't walk a mile. Concentrate on all the things you can do not what you can't do. It is not a race nor a competition but a way to do more for yourself even if to start it is little things. The little things compound and grow into big things. I am going on a business trip and I looked at my passport for the first time since I joined Sparkpeople and only now realized the changes in the last year.
