“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,
