I am going to try and get one post in a week. I have literally been working outside in the yard until dark each day. I need to be cloned so I can get it all done. I have cancelled Jazzercise for the summer. I am going to get in 3 days of step aerobics to maintain the muscle I have developed. I am carrying a watering can in each hand around the yard - that should count for something. I ran the tiller today, planted corn and beans, filled some flower pots and pulled some weeds - that is exercise don't you think?
I did have a thought about a topic.
Have you ever considered how two people can look at the same situation and have two different perceptions of the situation? Let's consider a family reunion as I imagine many of us will have a couple of those this summer; I know I will. One person lives in fear of the day and the failure that he/she feels is sure to happen. Another person won't get all stressed out, but consider it just another day, and will do the best he/she can seeing the day as a chance to prove to him or herself that control is the rule of each day of eating not just at a family reunion.
A New Year's Eve party would be another example of one person thinking "What's the use; I might as well enjoy (?) this last day of the year and start tomorrow getting serious. Another person will see it as a chance to enjoy the company of friends - this person won't be starting over tomorrow because that person didn't stop the new lifestyle for a party.The new lifestyle can include a drink or two or none at all. The new lifestyle can enjoy an evening without losing control and begin a 3-day binge.
How do you perceive exercise? Is it a chore? Is it something you do as a part of your routine without stopping to consider if you are in the mood or if there is something you would rather do and skip it?
Have your perceptions changed? We all have to work on ourselves and how we perceive this new undertaking of becoming healthy and being the best version of ourselves we can be.
I need to get the dirt out from under my fingernails now. Take care.
