So I have joined the GOOBers...Get Off I Our Butt Blog Land exercise 'club' if you will. I have mentioned that fear of public anonymous shame seems to be spurring me on more than the threat of a spanking ( and I've already had one a few weeks back for not meeting my goals).
I have pledged to eat 3 real meals a day. Drink 8 glasses of water ( something I have yet to achieve) a day . My exercises choices at the moment are the weighted hula hoop for 45 mins Mon/Weds/Friday and the most dreaded 'running' the stairs in my house for 30 minutes Tues/Thursday. I really, really, REALLY hate running the stairs. Believe it or not it is way harder than it sounds-even though, I don't actually run, but more walk very briskly. I literally say in my head for the first 15 minutes, I hate this. I then start watching the clock edging myself forward in 2 minute increments.
This video was on Face book today, and it made me realize how silly I am to complain about something that really is not that difficult. My wanting to exercise is yes, for a healthy heart, but to be truthful it is because I want to wear a bikini in March when we are on vacation. Well be comfortable with myself in the bikini, how is that? Such a silly reason, once you watch this video.
I pledge that whenever I feel like I am not going to exercise, something that God has still granted me the power to do, I will watch this video.
