After yesterdays post on exercise my first thoughts were: “Oh nice post cup cake you just threw me under the bus with that post! What’s with that whole accountability thing? What was I thinking?”
My next thought was: “No problem just delete the post, make it go by by, nobody will be any the wiser.” Then I realized, a little forced exercise may at least get me to get a day in and maybe start the ball rolling. I realize with exercise as with many things the guilt from the past of not doing, can tamper the energy to do for the future. So letting go of the past, and starting new.
Sitting in my recliner, going over my choices: a little bike ride, the step I bought at the salvation army for 5 bucks (I knew I was in trouble when I didn’t want to carry it around the store and asked Navar to step in to my rescue.), Or I could use the spin cycle, we also bought that day for 20 bucks, sitting so patiently on the porch. I thought if it sat outside, the desire to drape clothes over it would be squelched. My choice was to take the spin cycle for a little ride. I put on a headset with some up beat music, that really did help, and away I went shortly into it, I thought the road bike would have been a better choice, because at least there is some down hill coasting time. But peddle I did, towards the end of my uphill climb, the thought that when your out of shape the endorphin benefit is potentially high, this kept me peddling for a few more minutes. So yes, I did follow through yesterday, and no I will not throw myself under the bus today. Today is a new day and there are more endorphins to be had, so we’ll see. I once heard that a lot of people don’t like to exercise, and if you actually wait for the feeling of wanting to exercise to overtake you, that may not happen. Unfortunately, Ive read a lot of things about how good exercise is for your health. It’s a pity really. Eating more blueberry’s would be easier to better my health.
