One Small Step for Me...Literally

Friday, May 01, 2015

I can diet the pants of another person.....for a while.
I can track calories of the pants of another person .....for a while.
I can bring my lunch to work better than anyone else....for a while.
well you get the drift.
But one thing that I hate doing is exercise. Any type (treadmill, bike, aerobic classes, you name it, I hate it).

Do I feel guilty about this fact? yes of course. But the truth is still the truth. And I know that is one of the reasons why losing weight is so slow for me. So today was so nice and the subway platform was so incredibly crowded with people that instead of waiting for my connecting train I just got out of the station and walked to work. I felt so proud of myself for "just doing it" that I think that is what I am going to do every morning when the weather is nice during the work week. I know this might sound weird or petty for some but for me this was HUGE.

I just voluntarily made a good step in the right direction and the best part was I actually enjoyed it! I'm just so proud of myself. Happy Friday to me! emoticon

    Wow - you sound like me! I've just started walking again, I don't mind walking in good weather and that is really all I want to do. So I'm trying to keep it up again.

    I don't think it's "weird or petty" at all! Good for you. Like you, I think traditional exercise is no fun and every time I decided to hit it hard, all I did was quit when I got bored with it. Now I have been walking every day since Jan 2 and haven't quit yet. If you don't have one, pick up a pedometer. Then when you check it, you get "credit" for everything you did that day. emoticon Good luck.
