Time to dig in my heels

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

I'll admit it. I'm haven't been very motivated to be healthy lately. I'm tired a lot and it gets to me. I am trying to keep in mind that the more tired I am, the more important it is for me to focus on my health.

I am eating well. Because of this, I lost another pound this past week. I have been moving more, but I am not consistently exercising. My sister bought me a beautiful treadmill, so I really have no excuse. I just need to get on the thing.

I have been on a walking challenge for a while. It started at 10 minutes a day and now is up to 30 minutes a day. I find that number daunting, even though I know I can split it up and not do it all at once. I keep resetting the day for the challenge I'm on. I'm considering just quitting it, and trying to get in my exercise other ways besides just walking. I hate to quit though. I never finish challenges. I think I'll ask a Spark coach for advice. Whether I stay on the challenge or not, it's time to commit to exercise. I know it will help me feel better.

    Lori, Would you let your sister quit? Sometimes, we have to take our own advice. Even if you do 10 or 15 minutes every day, or every other day it would be great. Remember to start slow. Challenge yourself and reward yourself even for small feats. Maybe it's too stressful doing the challenge, as you get mad at yourself if you can't keep up with it. Start slow on the treadmill maybe 5 min. at a time. I'm sure your sweet sister would love updates on you progress with the treadmill. Good luck and be kind to yourself.
