You are about to read day 25 in my 31 Day series from Fat to Freedom, as part of write 31 days.
I knew that I was going to have to take more exercise from the answers to my questions, so I wrote down –
Exercise – then I wrote down the things I liked and the things I disliked about exercise, the types of exercise I wanted to try, the types of exercise I had enjoyed in the past. I made an exercise to do list – this allowed me to make my goals into daily actions, things I could do each day to reach my dream.
I wrote down -
What - Exercise at least 30 minutes a day with one day’s rest.
How DAILY Action – walking to and from where I park my car to get to work
The thing we need to remember about our daily actions, is that they aren’t static, we need to revisit them once a week or once a month, to review if they are working for us, or if we need to make any changes to them. In time as I began to notice a difference in my fitness, I felt that I wanted to take more exercise so I revisited and changed my daily action to –
What – exercise for an hour a day
How – walk to and from my car (parked 20 mins walk away) before and after work, and swim for 20 minutes everyday.
It is so tempting when we read over our answers to these questions to do nothing. Let me tell you its natural to be overwhelmed, but do not let these feelings take you captive, write down how you feel, and then move on to breaking up your goals into small steps, that you can take to achieve them. Remember you are not in a race, this is not a quick fix, you are creating a lifestyle where you will be free from fat, and be healthier, slimmer, and possibly happier than you have ever been in your life before.
They allowed me to move from the big picture to the daily actions.
This is day 25 in my 31 Day series from Fat to Freedom, as part of write 31 days.
From my answers it is clear that I had a lot going on. Many things had happened to me, and numerous choices I had made, had brought me to this point.
There’s a lot to deal with here. You maybe have a lot to deal with too. Remember don't go it alone.
But the most important thing about having a lot to deal with, is that you only have to deal with it one bit at a time, there is no rule that says you must do everything at once. Instead, break it down, make it manageable, make it practical, make it do able.
Deal only with what you can at that specific moment, don’t worry about the rest, your time will come to deal with it. Get support as you start to deal with what comes up for you, don't let those overwhelming feelings suggest you can't change, you can't make a difference, you can and you will.
I know that when I first wrote everything down, I felt overwhelmed. I didn’t know where to begun or where to start. That is why I encourage you to write it down because when the thoughts come out of your head, and onto a piece of paper, it becomes easier to find a starting point, and work out what you need to do to take that first step.
That's it for now ...
