exercising

Friday, December 10, 2010

I have taken off from exercising this week (I don't know why- I have just felt like a slug) and today I got back on the treadmill. I feel great after working out. Why is it so hard sometimes just to start the exercising session? I always feel better afterwards and am glad I did it. I just find myself procrastinating. I wish I could be more like my dog. Whenever he sees the leash and my head phones on, he starts jumping all four feet off the ground, he is so excited to go. I just wish I could cultivate that excitement at the beginning somehow.

    As a former runner (bad knees) and now a walker, I have said for a long, long time that the hardest step of the entire process is the step out the door. Once I get going its wonderful. To help myself get going, I tell myself that I don't have to go for a set amount/distance. It also helps to have a dog! Dora dog gets me out the door simple by her enthusiasm and she has a habit of coming up and laying her head on my lap and giving me that sad puppy eye look when she really wants a walk.
