10 minutes to change my life

Sunday, October 09, 2011

10 minutes.

I could watch tv, stuff junk into my mouth, play a video game, be on the computer...


I could stretch, walk around the block, listen to a fun song and wiggle and jiggle!

10 minutes a day x 7= 70 minutes a week
I could add a minute a day or every few days or even every week and I'll multiply how much stronger I'll grow, how much healthier I'll be, HOW HAPPIER I WILL FEEL (endorphins), and HOW MUCH MORE ENERGY I WILL HAVE!

With all that extra energy...there's so much I want to do! It would change my life!

I COMMIT to 10 minutes a day (more is ok) to change my life, by moving. WHO wants to join me? Even if I'm dog tired at the end of the day, I'll do my 10 minutes (even if I'm in bed - I can do some stretches)...and if I don't,.. I won't beat myself up, I'll start my streak again the next day. I COMMIT

    Thanks for this blog -- it is very motivating. So often I think we (I know it's true for me) don't get out for exercise because looking at 30 or 45 minutes seems daunting ... but 10 minutes (like you say, even something like stretching) is do-able for probably almost everyone.

    A great blog article!

    I like it, I'm going to join you!
    I will definitely have to start with stretching I think, but that's something, right?

    Great plan! I have been doing exercise (pumping my arms) during the time I have something in the microwave. The times add up! emoticon emoticon

    I saw and was intrigued by your blog title, "10 minutes to change my life" on the Thanksgiving Community page (guess you've hung out there at some points in your SparkPeople sojourn).

    You state the idea in a succinct, smart, articulate, transformative manner that REALLY makes sense to me. I've been on a slippery down hill slide recently, and this kind of wisdom speaks to me in way that's REAL and DOABLE.

    Thanks for puttin' it out there!
