Get up and Get moving

Sunday, May 20, 2012

So Iíve made a plan for exercise!! I will walk Monday, Wed, Friday and Saturday. I will do Zumba on Thursdayís and have Sunday off. Sounds like a good plan right? Well now to get the motivation to do it. I just need to push myself. I should use all my frustration I have building inside me to fuel my walks.

I might start walking around my building on my lunch. It would give me a break from all the people and from sitting at my computer. The fresh air will always do me good.

Itís not that I donít like walking it gives me time to think and to just enjoy the outdoors but I get winded and itís embarrassing to me. But we all have to start somewhere!!!

    Don't worry about how far you go at first. One step at a time will get you there. Speed and distance will increase with time.

    One of the wisest things I ever read:

"Don't get discouraged; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was." ~Richard L. Evans

Keep going! You're doing great!

    That is absolutely true! Start small and work your way up! 2 years ago I started with walking 1-2 blocks and it felt like it was a huge step! Now I can walk 3-5 miles every day and am thinking of increasing it. I was self conscious at first and thought people must be staring at me, etc but now I have complete strangers who cheer me on! Do it for yourself and soon you will be as addicted to it as I am. I walk once with one of my sisters to have some good laughs or share our lives and then walk once by myself to just meditate and reflect. You can do it.
