Day 17 We want to be as fit as we can be ... we know it's good for us ... we start going out for a few days but there always seems to be something in the way of that walk. All I can say is "I HEAR YA!". Creating 'a walking 30 minutes a day' habit in my life took ... starting a daily blog where I wrote about all things walking and my daily adventures for an entire year. That was a bit out there but there were more than a few days that the thought of writing a blog about not walking was just a lot harder to face than a 30 minute walk. So if you are half way through the month and you are off track ... you are in good company and the group is called ... drum roll ... The Majority. If you walk everyday or jump, hop, skip or run. You are in a very small ( healthy) minority.
I guess the question is always going to be "which group do I want to belong too?
Quite often when we are out with our walking group on a bad weather Saturday morning at 8 a.m. starting a 10 K walk I think about the statistics... what percentage of the population is getting up at 7 a.m. to walk their butts off on a Saturday morning? I like being a part of that group!
I know that getting up and putting the effort into that walk will always be a challenge ... but I think that the benefits just make it worthwhile. We have to keep on trying.
That's it for the pep talk ... if you are off track just start over and ... Walk On Strong!
