Part of my instructions from the study I am involved in is to do some kind of physical activity for at least 20 minutes a day. Twenty minutes in the scheme of things is nothing but for some reason I find that I am always “getting ready” to do my workout instead of actually doing it. WHich, of course, means that I procrastinate and next thing you know the day is gone and I am feeling bad about myself for not working out.
Today I had an ally in The Bee who encouraged me to get my twenty minutes in. SHe walked with me as we did a few circuits around a park that I have been meaning to hit up. I keep telling myself that I am going to get up early and walk, that I will walk on the weekend, that I will do it later but walking with my teen was fun. We chatted about food, explored a nearby college campus and it was enjoyable to not be in my own head for a while.
Instead of thinking about it, I just did it and gained some extra time with my teen and had a nice chat. She’s turning into a great person and it’s my pleasure to share time with her.
