And now I see why taking a walk every day is going to be so challenging:
It's only the second day of my Warming Up phase, and I wore myself out yesterday and woke up with a headache today. Headaches are good reasons not to go for walks, right?
My typical pattern goes like this: Make a commitment to do something positive and healthy for myself while I am feeling quite good. Wake up one morning not feeling quite so peppy. Lose track of the motivation to stick to the commitment. And eventually decide that wasn't a very good idea in the first place, so why bother?
I am going to foil that process this time, though! Because I am blogging about it! My followers would be disappointed!
It is easier to get out there and walk today, even with a headache, because I've made this commitment openly. Left to myself, I'll always find a perfectly logical reason to "forget" and stay in my familiar comfort zone.
