I am not the first to say this phrase certainly but as I walking on my treadmill last night I realized I am on Workout Day 65. That represents 65 times I have chosen to exercise this year. GO ME!
But I have to realize that there are far more people who are inches away from “workout day 1” because they haven’t started yet because they feel too far afield of the process to ever “catch up” . I have news for you, there is no such thing as “catching up” when you are competing to be the best you that YOU can possibly be. I could very easily be upset by the fact that in my first dance class in 9 years that I was having trouble keeping up and even knowing what the heck the instructor was asking us to do but you know what, when I started working out in December of 2013 I walked, slowly and had trouble going for longer than 5 or ten minutes, so like so many things in life, it is a process and in the world of dance, I am a beginner, a neophyte, a total novice. For someone who prizes the expert status I have in so many other fields, this is a hard sentence to type.
That is okay by me because I have seen the progress I have made in the world of fitness, so dancing “one step at a time” into success is going to be fun and I hereby declare I will NOT feel bad about my progress by watching someone else do an amazing pique turn, I will instead focus on the approaching day when I do a perfectly executed cha cha. Is there something you say “yeah, I would like to be better about that, but …. (insert excuse here) but haven’t? Start now.
Let today be your Day 1 and stop complaining, start doing!
Think about it!
