"Just Do It, AGAIN!"

I'm sitting here in my exercise clothes. Before I put them on, I gave myself 100 reasons why I shouldn't "waste" my time on the treadmill today. I've got pictures to order, an address to look up, bread to bake, and the list goes on.

Finally I convinced myself to just at least put on my exercise stuff. As I was getting dressed, here's what popped into my head: You know that Nike slogan, "Just Do It"? Well, here's mine: "Just Do It, Again!".

See, if you're trying to form a habit or a healthy addiction, it doesn't count to only do it once. If you've done it, experienced what it was like, good for you. You've done it. But it only counts when you do it again, and again, and again, and again.

Telling myself that it's OK to skip today because I worked out yesterday is a bunch of baloney! So, I'm gonna stop blogging and hop on that treadmill, again!

Update: I did it, for 30 min.! Time to hop in the shower, whew!

Hi! I found you on Sara's blog.

So funny. I do the same thing. BUT I've started to force my self to at least go to the gym for "just 20 minutes" and every time I've ended up stayed for my full hour and a half routine. It's convincing your self to "Just do it, again!" I love that. You should e-mail that to NIKE.

I need to do it again also. My baby is four and the fat remains. How depressing. My treadmill has about an inch of dust on it. I need some serious motivation. Good for you for jumping on and staying there. Keep it up. :)

I am convicted :) Although I did take Rhys out twice for half our walks this week... But that doesn't always count, when you stop and chat with neighbors...
