The Hard Part Is Getting Started

This Sparked Me!

I haven't kept up with my cleaning and workouts, so I found a way to get started. To me it's all about getting started after that its smooth sailing. I start my day with walking first thing in the morning.

I told myself 15 minutes of dishes wouldn't kill me or walking a few blocks won't hurt. I do that right away in the morning to put myself in a good mood for the day. I get a lot more done than to put it off until later in the day. I treat myself with an energizing smoothie.

    I like the idea of just getting into the routine of something. emoticon emoticon

    I agree. If I do not force my bottom out of bed to get the exercise in, it will not happen. I am always very glad that I have. My whole day goes better! Better mood and better able to handle stress.
