Excuses or challenges

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Life gets busy, there is always something that needs to be done but is that an excuse not to exercise or a challenge to overcome? I sometimes have difficulty knowing the difference but by making exercise part of my life I have no more excuses just challenges.

I love to walk, it is my mainstay of exercise and I don't have a treadmill so I always walk outside. This winter has been a challenge with record breaking snow storms, followed by the wettest spring in recent history. Yes there were days when I had excuses and not challenges but overall I became a challenge winner and this morning I had the fruit of my labour.

I pulled out a pair of shorts new from last year because the previous year's did not fit - not an uncommon occurance each passing summer. Not this summer though - last year's shorts were TOO BIG and now I need to buy new because they don't fit for the right reason.

I still have a long journey ahead of me but so long as I don't make excuses and just overcome the challenges I know I will ge there in the end.

    Why don't you look into a Walk Away the Pounds for those rainy, yucky days! 2 miles in 30 minutes! You know you have 30 minutes!

    I always enjoy a blog where you've learned something and we remember. I've been there and I feel the same way. Excuse is a word to lose. You are doing great. You are committed. Thanks for sharing. It was a great read!
