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.
