Ok, so I've once again fallen off the exercise wagon. I don't know what I blame it on, except laziness. But really that's not it either, I'm not lazy when it comes to other activities like house work , yard work, or working at my job. I just hate exercise. Actually I hate to get started, but once I'm in the middle of the activity, I don't mind at all. This should be no excuse, because I see the results it can bring - longevity, better heart and bone health. Less depression.
Developing and keeping good habits has always been a problem for me. I have had good intentions when it comes to eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, reading my Bible every morning, doing continuing education on a routine basis, practicing the piano or mandolin. All of these things began with a full set of good intentions. It's like I can only do one thing at a time, this week I've done better with devotions and Bible reading. I've done a bit of piano. I can't remember the last fruit I ate. The last vegetables I had were cole slaw and fried corn! LOL
That's so sad, that someone in my position of giving others advice cannot stick to that advice herself.
Maybe I need to be one of those people that puts everything on a calendar and stick to it. Problem is, I choose to ignore the calendar :)
Today, I will put exercise on my calendar for 3 days over the next week. Daily exercise does not seem to work for me, I get burned out too easily. I will also put Bible study on my morning calendar, and maybe an email reminder from a site or two that has devotionals will get me back into the habit.
Update: I have worked out today and put "workout" on my calendar for every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We'll see how long it lasts. LOL
