I've been feeling "blah" about exercising these last few days. I am really having to force myself to get in the 10 minutes a day that I committed to. Today, I *really* didn't want to exercise, but my girlfriend is in her fifth day of sober and I wanted to honor that progress, so I laced up my Nikes and did it anyway. After my 10 minute minimum, a friend called on the phone, and while I was talking to her, I did some strength training on my legs/hips that I should be doing (for physical therapy) every day, but have forgotten about most days. After I hung up with her, I decided to walk in place while sorting laundry in front of the TV, and that added up to another 25 minutes! I felt so much better after all that activity, I couldn't believe it. My mood this afternoon was far better than this morning, and I am having a nice healthy dinner to round out the day. So, even just a little bit gave me the momentum to make it a great day, even if I was crabby and tired when I woke up. It really is true that every little bit helps!
