Climb a tree

Monday, August 15, 2011

Today I read a Spark People Reflections. It made me think of my basic character. When I was a child, I tried to climb a tree. Not athletic by any means, I thought I would give it a shot. Two faltering steps up, I gave up. I said, "I don"t like this" and home I went. So, basically, if I don't like it, I don't do it. Even if it's good for me. Even if I know I should. I was on the treadmill a few minutes ago. I was hot and sweaty and short of breath. I was thinking how rotten this felt and how I wanted to quit. I didn't. I did my allotted 10 minutes. ( am just restarting after a year off). And then I came up and read that reflection. "To reach the fruit, one must first climb the tree". The exercise is my tree and health and weight loss are the fruit. I need to remember that when I am hot and sweaty and losing my motivation.
