My body thanks me

Friday, May 17, 2013

Setting goals yesterday must have helped; I finally got off my fanny - literally - and got a half hour of Pilates in in addition to walking the dogs. First time I've done anything other than walk in a week & a half!

I had an excuse while we were on vacation - I could have worked my upper body, but I hadn't even packed resistance bands & while I might have Ben able to do push ups - maybe - I couldn't do much else.

Which was no biggie; I think I needed a little break from exercising. I don't have to worry about not coming back to it - I always do.

I don't belong to a gym anymore so I couldn't swim or bike.

Still, there are no excuses for not starting back with some ST once I got home. Maybe I still just needed a little exercise vacation. All I know is it felt really good to be doing ST again.

What does your body thank you for today? If you answer nothing, you still have time! Show that wonderful body of yours some gratitude; it's the only one you get.

    My body is thanking me this morning for not eating the Pringles my grandkids were gobbling up. I sent the unfinished cans home with them!
Good job getting back on track.

    Oh that is such a good question to ask - I think I'm going to incorporate it into my routine. Maybe mid-afternoon - when there's still time to do something. Thank you!

    FINALLY getting out the door for a 10K run---it's been over 10 days since my last run---despite the heat (in the 80's)!

    My body thanks me for stretching yesterday. Always a good thing, and yet I tend to ignore it. emoticon
