I hate it. As simple as that. So please don't try to convince me otherwise. It'll only make me hate you, too. But I know it works...And it's good for you (eye roll!...sigh!) But still. I hate it. However, after an overloaded carbo-sweet-holiday-orgy-athon, it's time for some restraint and moderation, a semblance of living with intention and purpose. And in spite of how much I hate exercise, I have in the past had some success with it. So I am going to resurrect my annual January challenge to walk for 31 days in a row-10 minutes (minimum) daily. And yes, it's the worst time of year for cold, miserable, unpredictable weather. And although my daily goal of 10 minutes may seem pathetic to some-it's not the intensity of exercise that I'm trying to accomplish-or really even weight loss. My real challenge is about keeping a promise to myself-to honor my commitment to self-just as I would keep a promise to a friend. How is it that we will kill ourselves to keep our word to others but so casually lie, defraud, defy, and let down ourselves??? So my January challenge is about honoring my intentions, making them a priority, and practicing sacrifice in spite of my (temporary & mild) discomfort.
So here's to thirty one days-thirty one promises kept!!! Woohoo!!! ...and please expect some whining & bitching... just keeping it real, folks.
