Didn’t get it done …

Well, the first week of my Activity Plan didn’t go as “planned.” I got in 60 minutes of walking early in the week and planned to get the rest of the 150 total minutes over the weekend. And, just like that, the weekend that I thought was in place was “replaced.” I can’t make excuses … I have to get it done.
According to Very Well Fit’s article, “10 Things to Stop Doing if You Want to Exercise,” the one step I have to be very careful about is the one about Making Excuses. First Activity Week and first week not completed — and I have excuses: I had too much work … I was too tired … the farm work got the better of me … unexpected family and visitors showed up.
Some solutions to overcome the excuses: 1) look for opportunities to exercise; 2) change my negative thinking about exercise; 3) be honest with myself and BE COMMITTED.
Looking for opportunities to exercise this month means, for me, to start the day with a walking regime and not let it wait until the end of the day. I will go on that walk and take the opportunity to thank God for all that He has given me and seek His help in the challenges that await for me … and try to surrender the control. I have already proven in my very first activity week that I can find excuses for not getting my walking done — I have to accept and be honest with myself that I can put things on hold when, in reality, I need to force forward with a consistent commitment.
