A New Ah-ha moment

Thursday, May 05, 2011

This week I have been riding my bike for 10 minutes a day. Not much but I promised myself that I would do this. And I am so happiness to me. Then I remembered how much I loved yoga, I'm in a yoga group here on SP, and missed my daily yoga. So I ran to my library and picked up Baron Baptiste's Power Yoga level 1. Because I have his two books and can't figure out how to go from one pose to another. I need a visual aid. So I am all excited I watch the first little bit of it and decide that just like my bike I need to start smaller than the DVD does. So away I go with the breathing and I realized just how out of shape my WHOLE body is. Not just what you can see on the outside, but the inside as well. My lungs, my heart, even my mind is out of shape these days. So I sat down getting ready to have a pity party with myself and a bag of chips when this happy little voice inside my head said: "It's okay! It will all be okay, don't worry it won't happen over night but it will happen. Small steps and before you know it you will be at the finish line."
So I put my chips away and started to take stock of what I have going for me. The big one is that I already have good muscle tone. Granted it is all hidden under the fat suit that I am wearing right now. But it is there when you feel for it. Just waiting to come out of hiding and say hi to the world.
So I CAN do this. One short little 10 minute session at a time. I CAN and I WILL find the zipper to the suit I put myself in.

    I so agree with what you are saying. I think the other big thing I might blog about this next is that we (women) need to come to realize that we are worth the extra time. It doesn't make us bad people to take some time for us.

    Yes, you can do it! You will build on what you started but your foundation is so important! I had a little chat with myself about a year ago, probably a month or so into SP and I told myself that I didn't put the weight on in a few months, why would I expect it to come off that way too? I set small, attainable goals for myself and starting small was the best way for me, too. It's about changing our lives, not just reaching the goal. We need to make changes, start habits that will continue for the rest of our lives. Sounds to me like you are going the right way!
