Today I was able to get up early enough to get on the elliptical, but not for as long as I wanted. All good, I have many days to get there. I did 15 minutes this morning and just did an additional 35 minutes on the elliptical.
I discovered sometime over the summer that if I watch something I can get sucked into, I kind of "forget" that I'm exercising (???). Sounds strange, but I guess I trick myself into doing it. I'm not in that place yet where I get all pumped up and do mental chest bumps and get all psyched up the way I envision high school football players do before a game. In fact, one of the main reasons I push to exercise first thing in the morning is because I am not fully awake yet and can't talk myself out of it. I know things won't always be this way, but I'm just blessed to know and be aware that I'm like this, and am able to get behind some of the mental obstacles holding me back from being successful. I guess morning brain fod with a lack of caffeine and netflix do that for me :). If you can find loop holes in some of the things holding you back from being successful, don't be afraid to put them under your belt. Every little thing helps and adds up.
I wanted my daily scripture to be an encouraging word something to help me with these goals, but I guess God has other plans...err maybe He sees encouragement in a different light than I do. "Love" was everywhere, all up in my way looking for encouragement. I have other goals that seem so far out of reach, I dont even know how to give them words let alone approach them (years of bad habits and walls). Looking for today's scripture gave me a small glance at how to do this. It's with love.
