I went walking twice yesterday. Felt motivated to go last night again .... probably because for some reason I was having a not so good day and thought that walking might help me feel better. It did help.
Writing helps to keep me on track. Writing helps to keep me motivated. I am writing for myself as a way of dealing with my feelings and thoughts about the challenge that I have set myself. Also I do hope that if there is someone out there reading this that wants to do something with their life and find a challenge that will give them a sense of purpose .... I hope that my words might help. Of course I don't know if they will, but I always hope when I write that others feel positive about what they read.
It is quite warm here this morning and so I have decided not to walk, but rather to go for a walk tonight when it cools down. It is going to drop to about 22 or 23c after 6pm so I will be out and about then. I have to say I am not a heat person. I don't like the heat, never have, even when I was lighter. At my weight now it is much harder to go walking in the heat.
I would prefer of course to walk in the morning as I have noticed that it is giving me a boost during the day, but as long as I maintain my goal of walking every day, then that is all I am focused on right now.
All I care about for right now is getting through each day, getting through one day at a time. I have the end goal in sight, but that is overwhelming and so I have to break it down into bite size chunks and take one day at a time. What I do today matters in the long term scheme of things. It matters, and is part of the bigger picture ... the end goal.
I have realised as I progress through each day that making small goals really helps. Just the goal to walk each day right now, might not seem like that much, but it is a lot, at least to me, and is helping me along my journey.
I think at this point, it's the small steps that count .....
