Ever been around someone who gives you an energy boost? I saw my nephew today at the gym, and he is absolutely that kind of person. Both charismatic and kind he smiles and everyone around him smiles too. I went into my spin class feeling special and loved what can be better than that?
Leaving class, I ran into my friend Eddie. As we were both getting ready to leave we were commenting on how hungry we were for breakfast – of course, right? Then he gave me the apple you see in my featured image. I could have said, no thank you, but why not say yes to an unexpected gift? I used it to make myself a very delicious breakfast.
It’s important to know why any of us want to change our lifestyles and to get to goal. My why is that I want to live a healthy life for as long as possible. Knowing how is just as important and more elusive. Knowing how means creating an action plan, and here it is:
- Work the program because Weight Watcher’s #Freestyle works!
- A fitness routine, three times a week at Gold’s Gym Spin Classes feeling strong!
- Making connections: giving and receiving support family, friends, colleagues.
For this week I am going to highlight a tool a day that is helping me to close the gap from where I am now to getting to goal. Seth’s Blog post, The Gap really captures my feelings about this. I chose to be inspired by the challenge my gaps present and these tools are really helping me along the way.
I don’t know exactly why this activity log helps but it does. I like recording my workouts after I finish each class. It feels good to make my activity goal for the week. I guess it feels like progress and that’s why it helps me.: More tomorrow.
