There is a fine line between slowing down and becoming super lazy. I believe I have crossed that line.
I used to run from one thing to the next every waking hour of the day. My schedule was jammed packed with things to do, places to go and people to see. Now that I have put the breaks on an trained myself to enjoy being at home with nothing to do except what I want to do…it is now my most favourite thing to do. I could hang out at home all day everyday.
Perhaps the middle of winter isn’t the best time to be searching desperately for motivation but I know it’s out there somewhere. I need to find a way to make myself go out for a walk (even just a short one) and be more active. The lack of daylight hours certainly doesn’t help someone who loves the sunshine. I leave for work in the morning in the dark and by the time I leave the office, dusk has moved in. I know I should force myself to get out at lunch for a quick walk but I always seem to find a hundred reasons not to.
Tuesday’s is soccer night and I love it but being as lazy as I am, it makes those Tuesday nights a little more difficult to run for duration of the game. My starting goal to ‘unlazy’ myself is to get my 10,000 steps in everyday. My FitBit has been disappointed almost everyday in 2017 that is has not had the chance to celebrate the 10,000 step mark. That changes today. I’m back to taking mini strolls around the office, running on the stop while I am waiting for my coffee, walking around the living room while watching TV, parking further away from my destination.
The one things I will never forget from a Jillian Michael‘s appearance I attended years ago is that there is no trick to losing weight and being active and healthy, it’s a simple formula. Eat less, move more. So that is what I shall do…or aim to do.
62 more days until Spring and I can’t wait. While I am waiting, I will make the most of those 62 days and get off the couch and move. But if anyone knows the location of this magical motivation store, please let me know. I could use a bottle or two.
