This one is going to be even shorter than yesterday, but I promise I’m working on something great for ya in the next couple days.
For now, I’m reporting in that I’ve done 30 minutes and 30 seconds on the treadmill. You may remember that the white board that sits above my treadmill says “Do 30 seconds more than you did yesterday”….so that’s me meeting that challenge. :-)
Why is it, though, that after only two days of exercise…at only 30 minutes each…I feel like this:
Isn’t it funny that I know I’m not doing anything major compared to anyone else, but to me…every time I’m done on the treadmill…it’s a victory. I guess it doesn’t matter, does it? All that matters is that I didn’t quit. I’ve spent the last 20 years quitting on myself – and now I’m not.
My back and butt and legs are aching, but that’s okay…I know they’re supposed to. All day today, they’ve been a reminder that I kept my promise to myself yesterday. All day today, they’ve nagged at me – reminding me that I’m going to have to do it again tonight if I’m going to stick by my word. And I did. Aches, pains, and all. I kept my promise to myself again.
I’m working on another Get Real! post this week…till then, tell me how you’re doing. Are you moving more?
