What I Can't Do...

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Today's daily visualization was, essentially, to picture yourself able to do a task that you can't currently complete and imagine how it will feel when you can. At first I struggled with this because I can do almost anything that I want, at some level. I am in the enviable position that my weight, health, fitness, etc., while needing work are good enough to allow me to do most activities. I may not be as strong and fast as I'd like, but I can do it. I also am fortunate, in that I have confidence in effective effort or 10,000 hours, or whatever you want to call it. That is, I know that I can improve. The more effort I expend, the more I improve. If I want to do better, I just have to try.
So, I thought of one specific physical task/quality that will vanish when I lose weight. That is my stomach getting in the way of exercise. I dislike the feeling of my thighs hitting my tummy when I drop down on the handlebars when I'm cycling. I dislike the feeling of running into my stomach when stretching and doing crunches. I am very much looking forward to those fealings escaping along with my excess weight.
