When You Don’t Have 30 Minutes – Part 2

30 minutes

What could I possibly have to say that I did not say yesterday?  Well, read on – it’s a short post.

I got to thinking that I didn’t mention something that’s not always thought about – you can plan for the days when you know ahead of time you won’t have 30 minute to exercise; or even 20 minutes.  I know – having to plan might be a strange concept, and it was to me for most of my life.  But, I have found that I have to plan in my exercise, to make it part of my life routine.  When it’s part of your routine, it’s so much easier to do!

Yesterday evening I had dinner out.  I knew that I was not going to get my exercise.  And, I know what you may be thinking, “It’s only one day and you can just make it a non-exercise day.”  Well, the truth is that for me one day leads to three or four days and I can’t do that and be successful in my War On Diabetes.

So, knowing that I would not be able to get my rear out, I did a couple of extra things.  Like, I had to run an errand to a big box store.  I parked away from the entrance so I had to walk in and back out to my car.  I got in a total of about eight minutes there. When I went to the restaurant  I parked a bit farther out so I’d get the walk in and back out.  Another five minutes total.  So there I am at almost half-way to my daily activity level.

All it took was a little planing.

Like you, I am fighting a War On Diabetes everyday.  With a bit of planning, winning that war becomes easier.  What can you do when you can’t get your 30 minutes?

You can do it.  I know it.  I believe it in my heart.  And, so should you!

As always, thank you for reading.
