This year has been terrible for exercise. Some weeks I’ve barely left the house, spending much of my time in my work office or on the sofa. At least there are stairs between. But now it’s spring and the days are longer, the swimming pool is about to open and there is no excuse not to go out and walk.
I’ve got lazy, there is no doubt about it. The less you do the less you want to do, that has certainly been the way for me. We went for a long walk on Saturday in the warm spring sun. I enjoyed it so much and felt invigorated when we got back. Time to get back to exercising.
As I mentioned yesterday, a group of friends and I have decided to support each other to get slimmer and fitter. One of the elements of this is definitely exercise. I’ve signed up to an online programme, just 15 minutes a day to begin with. I have the video for the first workout in my inbox, but still haven’t done it. What is stopping me I wonder?
Exercise is a habit I’d like to create and drinking wine in the evening one I would very like to break. Time for some planning and then to actually get out there and do it. Trouble is I have never really liked exercise programmes, even though they have done me good numerous times. I’m a clock watcher during a session, that’s why I thought 15 minutes would be a good start.
My mission for the day is to complete that first session, how hard can that be?
