Well, I am slowly realizing that moving forward may not be so easy. I am used to doing things pretty much the same each day…day in and day out.
As an example I had 2 things planned to do this week. 1st, get on the treadmill and 2nd, stop at a nearby rehabilitation/fitness center and get an application and make an appointment to be evaluated. Basically see what my fitness level really is.
On Tuesday I had a dentist appointment near the fitness center, I had to go to the post office which is also near the fitness center and from there to do the grocery shopping for the week. Well, I was so used to my routine that I did everything else and it was not until I was almost home that I realized that I had not gone to the fitness center. I also have not been on the treadmill. Go figure; how bad is that ?
I now realize this may be harder than I originally thought. I know most people slow down as they age but I also know we do not have to. We have a choice each and every day when we get up in the morning. So I am looking for ideas…..what do you do ? Do you have a method you use that is successful ?
Right now I am going to make a couple reminders to myself and put them where I know I will see them; maybe that will help me get moving in the right direction.
I have also decided that each week I will post about why I am doing this post and what progress I may have made. Hopefully, that will keep me moving forward. Slowly it seems, one small step at a time.
I am also going to post about things that motivate me. Tomorrow, Friday, I will post something I found years ago when I was in high school. It is something I love and I have used many times. I always come back to it.
Hope you check it out.
