Making changes

Thursday, September 03, 2020

I usually blog about what I have experienced. Today I am blogging blind - I am yet to change my outlook on working out. For me workouts are a form of medicine - therapy for my body and mind. You don't have to like it, you just have to do it. Mind you, there certainly are exercises that I love and enjoy that don't feel like work, but my outlook on the endeavour is "get 'er done" and get on with your "real life".
So today I am being prompted to think about how I can change how I look at not only exercise but all the activities that I am cultivating in a compartment that I call "healthy lifestyle". I want them to become a part of my real life and I want to enjoy and look forward to it. So it feels like slowly pushing open a heavy door with rusty hinges and taking a cautious peek through the slit. The possibility that there may be sunshine out there is calling me to explore because that is the one thing I could never resist - the lure of possibilities :) I will have a brainstorm and see what I come up with. When I've tried it I promise myself to share what I learn. So cheers to making changes!

    Welcome to the Fall 5% Challenge. I’m there with you. Some exercises I like, and others, not so much, like you. I have just added exercises I don’t enjoy, but honestly, in one day I can already feel them being easier to do. They are short and sweet, so not long periods of drudgery. For example, ten reps and done.
    Remember your goal and go for it.

    Select exercises you love and those that make you feel good. I feel the same....some I love and some I just get through. If you find a solution to this...please share. emoticon emoticon
