When I woke up this morning I did not feel like exercising. Did you ever have one of those days? The energy was not there. The desire, definitely, was not there. It wasn’t intentional but I found that I was gradually talking myself out of it, grasping at every little excuse.
But then I went outside, took a deep breath and got started, anyhow. I put one foot in front of the other. And within a few minutes, you know what? I felt better. In fact, the next thing you know I was zipping along with vigor, intensity and stamina!
I think you can tell I learned a valuable lesson, in the process, about grit, determination and commitment!
…And that’s the story of how I completed a 7 ½ minute walk today.
