This week has been challenging on many levels. It's freaking cold here (teens for high temps) and while i love, love, love snow, I am not a huge fan of frigid temps. Extreme cold tends to make me want to huddle in bed or under a blanket on the couch. It helps my sloth nature try to take over. I literally do not want to move.
I hate it when just getting 10 min of exercise feels like I'm contemplating climbing Mount Everest!! Its 10 MIN of MOVING!!
But i LOVE how i feel when i make myself get up and move for 10 min anyway!! I hate going downstairs and getting on the elliptical. But i LOVE how exhilarated I feel when i am done. I LOVE how proud i am of myself for doing it anyway. I LOVE that I am not letting the negative part of myself control what i accomplish.
Today, was the first day this week i got my exercise done right away in the morning. This is a serious goal of mine. I usually get it done, but it is much harder mentally as i have to fit it in around the other things of the day and have to contemplate showering vs not showering...it makes a mountain out of what should be a molehill for me. I know that as i try to tackle some new discipline, it will be a fight. New habits do not form easily or everyone would be doing it!! One day out of five isn't that impressive, but it's better than zero!! I still have two days left, too :) Everyone has to start somewhere!!
I hope that whatever it is that you are trying to overcome or tackle in your life, that you will find what motivates you to Just Do It!!
