“Take the first step in faith.  You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just the first step.”  –  Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was spinning during spin class this morning thinking about life.  Well, as much as you can while you’re spinning.  I realize that I do well with working out, and other goals if I just get started.  For example, my spin class is at 6 am in the morning, so I set my alarm for 5:24 am.  I’m great as soon as I get out of bed.  That’s the first step.  I do fine on the treadmill, too, after I have taken the first step to get on it.  Taking that first step leads to the path of success and fulfillment.  I am confident I will reach my goals as long as I keep taking that first step.  Those first steps paid off even more today.  I realized that morning workouts serve as huge motivators not to eat “crazy” stuff during the day.  When I’ve already worked out, and I don’t want to ruin it.  I realize that I’m too early in my wellness journey to splurge a lot.  Now, if I was just trying to maintain, those gourmet muffins at work wouldn’t be evil.  Unfortunately, I’m at the beginning of my journey, so I am proud to say that I walked past those delectable muffins time after time today.  Can I get a gold star?  Ok.  Just knowing that I can have some willpower and discipline are rewards enough for me.
10 days down.  11 days until it’s a habit.
Much nub and fitness,
