4% Of My Day

Thursday, November 17, 2016

"An hour of exercise is only 4% of my day".

It's a mantra that I have to use to remind myself that that amount of time is really small in the larger scope of thing and that I'm worth that. It's trying to encourage myself to keep going when I'm ready to say I'm done. Some days it works, others I get stuck in my own head. I just have to remember, this is a long journey, not a race with myself.

The funny part of this is, I shared this mantra with my sister recently. My nephew looked at me like I was off my rocker told me that my calculations must be wrong. He proceeded to pull out his phone & use the calculator on it. Guess what. An hour of exercise is only 4% of my day. Mr. Analytical shoved his phone back in his pocket, but tried to reason that if you exclude sleep from the time line..... It was no use, my sister and I were too giggly about his reaction to the truth to care about any further reasoning.

So still, an hour of exercise is only 4% of the day and we are all worth it!
