This will be the beginning."
- Louis L'Amour, Author -
November is a thankful month. It is also one that is leading us to winter months of colder weather.
It will be easier and easier to say I can't go for my daily walk because it's cold or wet. It will be easier and easier to say, I need to sleep more since the mornings are so cold and the bed is so warm. It will be easier to say that working out is for warmer weather, not winter.
As humans we have a knack for making excuses. Instead we should be wrapping up in warm clothing and getting out as much as we can and enjoy the beauty in the world while at the same time doing our body good.
"No matter what our age
there are still
and new beauty
awaiting to be born."
- Dale E. Turner, Actor -
If you can't walk outside, find an indoor place to walk. Malls are excellent places to take a stroll when the weather is bad outside. Some fitness centers, gyms, and YMCAs have indoor walking areas. Large department stores like Walmart, Kmart, Target, or one of many other options are also great places to rack up the steps if you walk the perimeter of the store.
Where there's a will, there is a way to keep walking and moving even in winter. So don't let excuses drag you down.
November is a month of thanksgiving. Always look at the things you can do instead of the things you can't. Always be willing to try new things and not make excuses. You never know if you can do something or if you will like it until you actually try it. It's a blessing to be able to try new things.
Never stop learning, when you are snowed in and can't get out, read and learn. Watch a good movie or documentary. But don't forget to move. You can still do a few exercises at home and if nothing else, just walk back and forth from one end of the house to the other.
by being Thankful
for All the Positive Things
That Are Happening
In Your Life!
Do you concentrate on the things you can do rather than the things you can't? Do you let yourself be discourage when you see someone who is walking faster, lifting more weight, or losing weight faster than you are? STOP! Do you find all the things you can do and then do them? Are you thankful for the abilities you have? Are you thankful for all the positive things that are happening in your life?
