Getting Active

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I've just "re"started an exercise program. Using SparkCoach has helped me to accept that exercise is not an all or nothing proposition, that the little steps add up to a summative gain. Yesterday I walked the dog in the rain, it didn't start off as much of a rain and I thought it would stop soon enough. Then I got out there and it began to pour, I'm talking torrents of rain. I persevered and by the time I was home I was drenched, completely soaked down to my socks. The good news is that my clothes have dried and I have a healthy sense of accomplishment.
There will always be obstacles in my way - it will be too hot, too cold, raining, snowing, or I'll be busy. If I don't just do it, all these things will overwhelm me and I'll NEVER get out. So, activity has to become a MUST and not something I cast aside at a whim. I'm getting that now.

    Hey, I think exercise is something most of us have to work on every day! It's not that I don't like exercising when I'm doing it. It's just that I tend to procrastinate when it comes to exercise. I can think of so many others things that either take priority or that are a whole lot more comfortable to do, like sitting in my favorite wing back chair and reading. You are so right, it's something that has to become a MUST!

    I feel the same. I am still trying to make it a part of EVERY day.
