I was kinda distracted and took 4 days off my exercise. And I was starting to feel like i didn't want to do it anymore. Today I decided would be my day to motivate and get going again. But everything seemed overwhelming. My main activity is hiking with a 27# pack and heavy boots. I finally decided that today I will just forget the pack and boots and do some regular walking. Maybe several short walks today. Well that freed up my head a little and I was able to get off my butt and get going. I have walked a little while today and plan to do more of it. It really does help, for one thing, to be kind to yourself, and for another thing, to go ahead and sort of fake it til you make it. It may take me a couple of days to get back to my old routine but the thing that is important in the long haul is that I do this most of the time as a habit, and that I don't allow myself to burn out. I am feeling good about getting going again. The walking will stir my endorphins into play and little by little I will be able to add back to the point i was a few days ago. I'm just doing the best I can with each day as it comes. Not shooting for perfection.
