Mick’s up in Your Rut

Great job with getting started on exercising!  Remember, if it’s done Get out of your rut!effectively, it doesn’t have to take up a big chunk of your day

The New Year is a great time to strengthen that habit of daily exercise… but don’t wait for the new year to begin.  You’ve already gotten started, so now just make it a regular thing, a lifestyle.

A very truthful video a friend shared tells it like it is.  Out of the 24 hours we’re given each day, one half of an hour is not going to cause that much of a disturbance.  Can’t we fit everything we need to do into 23 1/2 hours of our day?  Can’t we take just half an hour (or less) to get up and move around with some kind of exercise?

To quote a doctor I know, “Procrastination is the act of not doing what you know you should do and convincing yourself to feel good about it.”  We all know we need exercise.  The trouble isn’t getting the knowledge.  It’s the follow-through.

I have not read the book yet, but I hear "Busting Your Rut" is a great book to help you get out of your comfort zone.  Isn’t it that simple?  We need to get out of our rut.

Just think:  You can do whatever you want for exercise.  It doesn’t have to be like Peter Osborne’s workout for tomorrow, Beast from the East: ”Break it up any way you want.  In any order.  Just get it all done ASAP.”
100 Push-ups
100 Deadlifts (135 pounds)
100 Squats
3 Mile Run

Hmmm… then again, even though I don’t have to, I just might want to try that workout tomorrow.  Sure.  Why not?!

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.
