150 and 1500

Saturday, June 08, 2013

This morning I just did not want to do any exercise. I've been feeling discouraged because of some troubling challenges I'm facing which don't have any easy solutions. This has had quite a negative impact on my outlook and motivation. So I'm thankful for little, silly goals. I set this goal to complete a streak of 150 days of daily exercise (at least 10 minutes a day) and to do 1500 push ups by the time I reach the 150 day streak, 150 and 1500. Today is the 128th day, without exception, of daily exercise and in spite of feeling HIGHLY UN-motivated, I was not about to mess up a streak like that no matter how down in the dumps I felt. I did mess up my first attempt at a 100 day streak of daily exercise and I'm not going mess it up again. Period. So I did the exercise, 20 minutes worth to start the day today and quite frankly it didn't hurt me to do it. In fact, I feel better now. At least this part of my life, my self-care and fitness, is going well. That provides a foundation, at least one good leg to stand on for dealing with the rest of life's challenges.

    Whenever I have a day when I don't feel like exercising, I just remind myself that I don't want to break my streak of doing at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. I'm on day 173. Just to be able to click that little box makes my day! emoticon

    In any life-changing goal, we have to accomplish many little goals. We have to make goals of changing the way we eat, exercising and just being different than the way we used to be. Bravo to you for such an accomplishment of 128 days! emoticon
