It is not easy working my 120 + minutes of fitness into my day. I have never exercised this much in my life, and I am feeling it. But I'm sleeping better, and I feel like I am managing my emotions better. But it's hard!!!
I went to the gym, but I wasn't feeling it, so I made my husband go for a walk outside with me after we put in our usual hour. We talked about what we're "giving up" by using our free time together to work out. Mostly tv and movies, and video games, was what we discovered. Accomplishments that don't mean anything in the real world. Who cares if I'm caught up on Desperate Housewives? The tivo isn't going anywhere. And when I do get a chance to catch up, I'll have earned it.
Am I alone? Do you feel like 2 hours of your day is too much to commit to a healthier life? I want to think that I will continue my streak even when this challenge ends. It's been painful making this healthier change, but I'm hoping that what I get out of it will more than make up for the discomfort that I'm feeling now. Anyway, this makes 5 in a row. I'm going to see if I can log all 56 days at 120 minutes. Are you with me? Go Lady Bugs!
