This ties into my other goal of eating healthy. I took action and “bit the bullet” to hire a personal trainer. Its been amazing! Besides being extremely knowledgeable, he is also helping to strengthen my shoulders, loose weight; all of this improving my energy, health and confidence.
I really am glad I have done this. Its been expensive, but the pay off will be priceless!
This morning when I woke, I noticed it was a nice morning, even though those little dogs were barking again. Nonetheless, as I laid in bed, I contemplated what I wanted to do today, vs what I should do. I still needed to get some green candles for Sunday and wanted to fix a couple of nails before Monday’s interview.
Of course lately, I have been playing some of those negative messages in my head when one popped up again today. I haven’t really done much the past 3 or 4 weeks with regards to eating better, or exercising. And then the idea to go out and get my tattoo cropped up.
Then I had my “Ah Ha” moment! Before I get my tiger tattoo, I will devote 12 weeks to exercising. I am not even going to worry about food (although I have my WW app that when used is pretty darn good at keeping me on track – food wise). But I need, NO, I WANT to get back into the wonderful feeling I get when I exercise. I know it can hurt, and I know there will be challenges, but I won’t be able to loose weight until I do.
So, that is my action for today and as day one, I walked the dog for 30 minutes. For both of us, that is good.
So, I have been doing for me for a change. I have a good start on my resolutions which focus on food journaling, eating healthy and ‘being active’.
It feels good to be active. Weekends are my real challenge. Its hard to get rolling before 9 am. There are people who get up early like eager beavers, but I like to take my time and enjoy the quiet.
I have been able to pick up some knitting I had been working and my goal is to finish it before the end of the month.
I have decided to change the title of this one from “Stop Procrastinating” to “Take Action”. This represents doing and being. I want 2011 to be a year of action. This is my first step toward that goal.
With all tasks, I just remember to take “little steps”. Break each project into smaller, manageable pieces and the job will get done. This weekend, while on “dog watch” I can get some organization done in the den.
Why do I procrastinate? Fear, laziness or lack of desire?
