Wellness Tuesday: When You Lose Momentum
With the start of 2016, I made the goal to exercise at least fifteen minutes every day. I was so proud of the progress I was making. Until, at the end of January I had a bout of pneumonia. For two
weeks I struggled to just survive.
Since, then I have struggled to return to my routine of working out. However, it’s not been as easy as I’d hoped.
I work a job where I am on my feet the majority of the day. By the time I get off, I’m exhausted. I’ve discovered if I don’t exercise right after getting off, more times than naught it’s not going to happen.
I even made arrangements to work out with a friend. However, even that did not turn out as easy as I expected. We had some differences to work through, but the biggest factor became the need to work over. This made it impossible to keep our appointments.
So I continue to strive to get back on schedule and return to my goal of working out a minimum of fifteen minutes a day.
St Francis de Sales said “Do not lose courage in considering your imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them…every day begin the task anew.”
How do you keep your momentum going?
