Be your own cheerleader

Saturday, July 21, 2018

I have started a new habit over the last 17 days. I exercise 6 out of 7 days. I am very proud of myself for this. For too long I would go from my bed to the sofa and back again. I rejoined spark people and have been doing 10 laps a day in the pool. To the end of a 32 foot pool and back =1 lap. I also do some water aerobics that I learnt about on Google.
I tell my husband that I have done my exercises and I get a "That's good Hun". No "way to go Girl". No High 5.
When I tell my friend's and family about my exercising I get "That's nice ".
No one is as impressed with my effort as much as I am. But that's okay because I am so impressed with myself for sticking to it even though it is hard work. "Way to go Girl!".
After 9 day of daily exercising I had to lower my insulin intake by 8 units a day ."High 5".
My moral is boosted so much because I am doing something so positive and good for myself "You go Girl!".
My mental health is so much better because I am outside in the sunshine everyday. "Wow!" .
I have even lost 3 lbs. As a bonus "Great!".
So be your own cheerleader and don 't give up.
