Holding Myself To It

Thursday, June 02, 2011

One of the reasons I wanted so badly to reduce my work schedule from 5 days a week to 3 was to make sure I would have more time to dedicate to my fitness. I then set a goal--I would exercise each of my four days off.

I'm now several weeks into this new schedule. I work M-W and am off Th-Sun. And each week, Thursday comes around and I have trouble drumming up enthusiasm to exercise. When I feel that way, I remind myself of the goal I set and that 1) I'm foregoing income in large part to exercise and that I'm darned well going to do it and 2) I'm not going to increase my fitness level if I don't actually exercise.

I'm not a big goal setter as a general rule, but I have to say that it's working!

    Amazing. Very inspiring. It is so much easier to find excuses and girlfriend you have better reason than most people to sit this one out. I am going to think about you when my lazy evil self starts whispering in my ear.

    Wow! Good for you. My current plan is to walk 30 minutes/day for recovery. I confess that I got so busy yesterday I completely forgot, but I WILL do it today! And so will you!
