NSV's - 2 Weeks into "55 by 55"

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I had to come write this blog post to remind myself I'm doing a lot better than I was.

Two weeks ago I reset all my streaks and committed to eating better and exercising a minimum of 10 minutes EVERY day.

And I've done that! emoticon A couple of days I did 12 minutes on my recumbent instead of 10. And I've been eating big salads with a little protein for dinner, and having oranges for dessert--good stuff like that. Little, sustainable changes.

But I'm already starting to judge myself for "not working hard enough" because I've only been doing 10 minutes exercise/day. CUT THAT OUT, SELF!! TEN MINUTES CONSISTENLY IS BETTER THAN NO EXERCISE EVER!!

Right? emoticon

    Building a habit of exercise into your lifestyle will help you succeed toward your final goal. As you consistently work out, your body is getting stronger and will have more endurance. Maybe that is what your experiencing with feeling like you could do more than 10 minutes. What if you continue with your commitment of a minimum of 10 everyday but allow yourself to do more on the days you feel stronger? I think overtime you'll take advantage of the strong exercise habit and still be able to consistently challenge your exercise abilities and options. We support your chosen path.

    Right! Make small changes... just getting started is usually the hardest part, so you'll probably find yourself doing a few more minutes here and there, more and more often. Big high five for doing 10 minutes every day, keep up the great work !
