I have a treadmill. Free weights. Yoga DVDs. Dance DVDs. A Wii. A Wii Fit. Running shoes. Athletic apparel. The big wide world out my door.
I have all these things, so tell me:
Why don't I exercise every day?
Exercising always makes me feel good, like I did something nice for my body. I like stretching and walking and pumping my arms.
It doesn't even take that long. I mean, twenty minutes on the treadmill or doing a Yoga DVD isn't a big time commitment.
So why am I not consistent? Why??
I'll exercise 4-5 days a week for months. Then the season changes or the kids add a sport or life gets thrown off by the hair of a dandelion fluff and, what do you know? My exercise routine waves bye-bye.
Anyway, I don't really have an answer at this point. I'm pushing myself now to move this body for twenty minutes a day--every day--and I can only pray this time I stick with it.
Do you have a hard time following through with a healthy habit? If not, what are your tips?
Have a terrific day!
