1000 fitness minutes? Are you sure that's not an extra zero?

Monday, July 01, 2013

I got my first trophy for 1000 fitness minutes for the month of June, and I'm feeling reminiscent.

I remember when I would walk half a block and come back, and that was exhausting and difficult.

I remember looking at the possible Sparkpeople trophies and seeing the one for 1000 fitness minutes in a month, and thinking: Yeah, sure. I guess you could get that if you're training for a marathon.

I remember the six months I didn't go to the gym because I was afraid I would injure myself.

It's been a rollercoaster of a journey, but I have come to understand that I can do so much, if I just don't give up on myself, and I see every day as an opportunity to treat my body the best I am able to.

    emoticon Every person has to slowly build up their ability to exercise, and find what makes them enthusiastic and encouraged to exercise. If a person averages about 35 minutes of exercise a day, everday for a month they can meet that 1,000 minutes. It sounds like a lot in the beginning, but after a few months it doesn't seem as difficult - especially if some of that time is spent playing sports or taking enjoyable walks.

    Amazing how far we can come by taking baby steps in the right direction. When I think of where I was last year and how little I could do without puffing and getting light-headed, it scares me--but today I walked 5.3 miles! Keep on keeping on. Congrats on your latest trophy.
