I've got a scorching case of PMS, I keep getting called by various companies to work for them at the last minute, and I can't because I'm working on a project for another client.
Which is painful for me.
Because I'm never satisfied with my recipes.
Plus? I need to be disciplined and focused.
And I'm neither of these.
Hmmm....what else can I belly-ache about?
We're supposed to get a couple inches of snow - which isn't a lot - but still. I'm finished with winter.
Let's think "happy" now, shall we? Yes.
Let's have something positive here.
Well? LLA, has been using the 'Jerry Seinfeld' red X method to get her 1 mile walk in every day. Go to her blog and check it out.
This is very motivating to me because I've been SUCH a couch potato this winter. So I officially started this last week. On Thursday.
Then I officially officially started again yesterday. Because of that little problem I have being disciplined and focused, remember?
So here's what I'm doing:
- I'm totally copying LLA and doing a mile a day. That's attainable and sure as heck is more than I have been doing.
- I'm super-duper out of shape. And while I've been wanting to go to a class at the health club? I'm just too out of shape to keep up. And I tend to like classes because I forget I'm exercising. Unless it's really difficult for me (which it is now). In which case I tend to avoid them.
- It's still a bit chilly out. It's also very icy. So I'm not all that thrilled to go outside and walk. So a while ago, I got this from Netflix:
It's a 2 mile "walk" you can do in the comfort of your own home. Yesterday I almost skipped it again, but while I was half asleep on the sofa at 6pm, I finally popped up and just DID IT, telling myself I only had to do one mile. Just half.
So I did the whole thing and felt so much better. SO.MUCH.BETTER.
Now I have my first red 'X' on the calendar.
Baby steps, right?
