OK, black pens are a challenge to me. I messed up a word and really wanted to tear out the page. The quote reads "The principle is competing against yourself. It's about improvement, about being better than you were the day before." - Steve Young
I LOVE THIS QUOTE! This says in a nut shell what I'm trying to accomplish with this challenge. Always before I compared my exercising against others and with physical limitations I always come up short. This time around I really am competing against myself and I find this very liberating. And I also am finding that I'm changing some of the way I think about exercise - it really isn't an all or nothing kind of thing. Who knew???
So far I've done something every day except Sunday and I'm going to excuse myself from that. I started a stronger dose of the shot I take on Saturday night and it knocked me on my hind end, so that's ok. This time around I didn't wallow in that spot, I picked myself up and kept on going.
I did have to chuckle at myself this morning because I was curious what the distance around my block is, so I drove it. I couldn't figure out how to make the odometer do tenths of a mile, so I just figured I would drive until the mile changed and figure from there. Lucky for me it's about half a mile exactly, so I didn't have to worry too much about what the neighbors think!
And the side effect of all this "moving" is that I'm just feeling better emotionally. Endorphins perhaps???
One thing I do like about this journal entry is the rainbow in the corner. I've always said during happy times that my life is "rainbows and unicorns", so I'm liking this rainbow. I will admit to being very afraid of trying to draw a unicorn!!!
(And yes, I'm a few days behind on my journal!)
