Hard, but not PERMA-hard - and good enough!

Monday, April 01, 2013

That was my BFF's advice a few weeks ago - I might be having a rough patch, hitting a major bump, it all appears super hard... but just make sure to be mindful of not making it PERMA-hard: relate to it as TODAY exercise feels impossible and eating well not within the realm of possibility; doesn't mean it will be that way tomorrow.

So today was my first time back exercising in several weeks - it just felt absolutely impossible to get my ass up to move, at all. Sure - stress, whatever; and my pattern - lose 10-15 lbs and then hit a crazy place. Been playing that game w/ the same 20 lbs for the last 7 years...

And time keeps marching.

So yea, it's hard. Sure, I've seen this before. Of course, I've developed habits and patterns. But hey - today I am at choice. *I* get to select what happens to me, *I* get to create my own damn motivation and inspiration - instead of sitting and waiting for it to strike. So I dragged my tired and cranky ass onto the elliptical... and it was great. For today, that's enough.

And I can tackle the major bugaboos of setting a plan and a schedule and calendar.... all that can wait. For today, I'm tracking my food and did 25 mins on the elliptical. For today, that is enough. For today, I am enough. For today, where I am is good enough.

    Maybe setting a schedule, making a plan and and a calendar just doesn't work for you, Maybe tracking your food and doing the elliptical is just fine and will get you where you want to be. Keep doing what works for you and, someday in the future, if you want to add to or change it a bit, that's ok too. Meanwhile, keep tracking and keep doing your 25 minutes of exercise. emoticon
