I started walking with Leslie Sansone about three years ago. It was the one exercise I could continue for more than a week or two without dropping. I think that is what is most important here. Find an exercise that you do not loathe or that makes you feel as though you can stick to it and you will. Some exercise videos make me feel like I am in junior high again and that I am two steps behind the leader or cheerleaders with everyone looking at me and giggling even though there is no one in the room. Even still, sometimes I have a hard time wanting to do my exercise, as I think we all do. I am so proud of myself this morning. I did not want to do it because of time constraints on the day. I said I'd do it this evening when it is cooler because my husband won't be home. I knew in my heart that I would never do it though. So I sucked it up and put on my workout clothes and popped the video in. I sit here now dripping all over the place with a sense of accomplishment. Going through my head is "don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today." Except mine was don't put off until tonight what you CAN do right now. I have been reading a book on how to live without regrets and one of the things it said is if you waste your time, you waste your life. I knew all I would do is sit on my butt and watch a little more news. So I feel good that I didn't waste my time on something that will not benefit me even two minutes from now and I did spend my time on something that will benefit me years from now. So now it is time to go and take my bath and wash away all this glorious sweat of productivity and go get me a new hairstyle to begin taking shape for my son's wedding in October. I am going to try to get all my goals better in focus starting today and I'd say I'm off to a great start!
