Struggling a bit

Sunday, August 09, 2009

HAving a lot o stress and lack of time at work so am not feeling like exercise and I really need it. Went to a weight management course thru employer on Friday and got new motivation so I must do more, and in fact, began doing some simple things at home. Hop to begin walking regularly at lunch again in the next week, and will commit to working out three day a week after work.

    Isn't ironic that the times we need exercise most are the times it is hardest to accomplish? Looks like you have a good action plan to become active again.

    Just the fact that you wrote about it is moving your thoughts in the direction of taking action. Let it be baby steps. 10 minutes of telling yourself you are not going to sit. If you just stand....it will lead to your wanting to walk. Anything you can do is in the right frame of mind and direction.

    It will de-stress you in those moments when you get up and move away from the stressful work.

    You can go this. Never give up. Never give up. Simple little things turn into bigger and bigger accomplishments. Wipe the counters. Wash the dishes. Sweep the floor. Done over the course of an evening - the job gets done. Don't look at the big picture when you are stressed as these images can overwhelm. My friend always tells me, "Linda the way you eat the elephant is one bite at a time." I always thought that was a weird analogy...I mean like who wants to eat an elephant....but I got his point. One bite at a time. One step at a time and before you know it you have done a lot of good things to make life better.

    It can be rough to struggle through patches of stress and time crunches, but amazingly enough, getting even a little bit of exercise during these patches actually helps you feel LESS stressed and your time just sort of sorts itself out.

    Even if you can fit in 10 minutes to walk, this will keep you motivated. Good luck! emoticon
