100 Days From Now ... Am I Ready For The Challenge?

Friday, January 15, 2016

I think I wrote that I'm doing a 12 step for compulsive eaters. That's helping me with food choices and portions. I'm drinking water. But I'm still not moving like I know I need to move. So I was reading Beth's story of losing 200 pounds over time and ill health. It inspired me to take up her challenge to move for 100 minutes for a 100 day span. 100 minutes/100 days.

I'm not going to lie. I wonder if I can do it. I fight the voices inside my head. But here's what I'm thinking. I'll count the time I am walking through the grocery store. I'll count the time I'm house cleaning. I won't have to be out walking in the cold or driving a half hour to get to a gym. I'll do those things too, but I'll get in my 100 minutes any way I can and still be legitimate. I don't want to cheat because that hurts no one but me, right? And the family I leave behind if I die. Sometimes I can be very selfish in my thinking.

So anybody out there who wants to join in, let's move. Let's get the lymphatic fluids flowing. Let's move those muscles. Let's see how our lives will change 100 days from now. I think this is just what I need. And I thank SparkPeople for giving me a place to track my "exercise." This is going to be fun!
