Daily Coaching Motivation Day 7

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Imagine looking back on your calendar and realizing that you've exercised every day for an entire month.

I feel awesome when I reach 1000 fitness minutes in a month. My challenge is the injuries - shoulder, knee, back. At least twice a year something seems to go suddenly wrong. Am I over doing it? I know enough to monitor pain and that's never the issue. I most often wake up "broken" in the morning so it's hard to pin point how.

In what areas of your life could you work on building consistency? Scheduling time for me and not letting evening events fill my whole week. Actually leaving my desk - getting up and going for a walk for 15 minutes twice a day. Shouldn't be that hard, but again, my meeting schedule is crazy. These are the areas where I feel undone.

    Thank you! Last night I was exhausted so I thought I would just do a yoga video (5 min each). 20 minutes later I felt revitalized and opened through my limbs. Clearly the fascia had released a bit and it felt great!

    Hmmm, I am building consistency into my exercise routine. It's been fun. Keep up the good effort!

    Looking at the fitness minutes over time, it really is sporadic. Today I took 20 minutes to do follow two yoga videos - a sun salutation and a quiet power stretch for your legs (to move blood to the heart). I feel great - I need to hold on to this every day!

    You can do it, the minutes just add up when you move emoticon emoticon
