Staying Motivated

Did you DU?

Josh replaces George as Walt Disney World President.
Walked to gym, then decided to keep walking. From home to DU is only 3 miles. Arrival at Disney University at 9:00 AM (if you zoom in on Watch).
Stayed an hour and left at 10AM (upper right). Took a Lyft home.
Delightful and surprising fun never gets old.

Never gets old.

What?

Walking or riding a bicycle to Walk Disney World.

Entered the gym yesterday and wasn’t feeling it. Been nursing a clavicle injury. Immediately decided to keep walking and used Disney University as the carrot.

What's Our Obligation?

Move like you mean it

An after-dinner three mile roundtrip walk to Grinnell Glacier Overlook from Granite Park Chalet.

Move like you mean it.

When we have a (private) personal script for the various exercise activities we don’t like, does this give us permission to simply give up and not worry about being active for the rest of our life?

How cool is it that we can over-write negative scripts with remarkably positive, self-fulfilling scripts?

Final 120 Days

When you miss 10 days

Yesterday, back to running after a two week absence.

When you go 10 days without a gym workout, you’re in one of two places:

  1. The cusp of quitting
  2. Excited to get back in

When you don’t run for two weeks…you should substitute some other cardio activity like walking and/or biking.

There was no gym in Glacier nor was there one close by, but there was plenty of trail – trails are everywhere.

Final 120 Days

Turn frustration into opportunity

Landscape home
In my mind, the landscaper has this one.
Home landscaping
Need to clarify whether he uses a ladder when necessary. And even if no, tell me so when i see an obvious and overlooked shrub, i don’t do it myself.

Turn frustration into opportunity.

Yes.

With no curtains on most of our windows, nature is glorious to look at all day long. Noticed an overburdened split-leaf philodendron that’s been climbing a palm tree for 15 years maybe. It wasn’t trimmed two weeks ago.

At high noon, in the heat of the day, grabbed a ladder and in the shade of the palms, delighted in being outside on a working break.

Being in the garden is an easy way to toss the world’s cares aside for awhile.

In college, get outside often. Even when you don’t feel like it. It’s great medicine.

First time for everything

First time for everything.

Pretty cool to write while being driven home.

Glad we got to run this morning, 1,000 miles from home.

Will move walking and gym workouts to Tues-Thurs-Sat this week.
