Two steps forward today
Sunday, March 16, 2014
This is a good day.
I started with SP two months ago. One of my first goals was to find 10 minutes everywhere I could to do a little exercise. It was a change in both behavior and attitude. It was a way for me to bust through the excuses.
"I don't have time," was my excuse...but it wasn't just a way of getting out of doing something I wasn't excited about. It was basically true....because I did not have an hour or two all in one chunk. And that was the way I saw exercise - if you don't have at least an hour to commit, it is not real exercise.
I decided it was time to change my attitude - since the old one obviously was not working for me. I let the truth in...the truth that any extra movement, any extra steps, any extra time spent on fitness was going to make a difference in my overall health.
Now that I have carved out all those little pockets of time, time that I spend improving my health and fitness levels, I am starting to see results.
Two fun things happened today:
1. I fit into a pair of pants that I have not been able to wear for well over a year.
2. I cruised right past the 10 minutes really made me sweat just a few short weeks ago, and found that I did not feel like I was really working until at least 15 minutes had gone by.
