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.
