Sounds like I must summon my adventurous spirit. It's in here somewhere, isn't it?
December 18 - Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn't go for it? (Author: Kaileen Elise):
What did I 'try' in 2010? Starting an exercise regime, of course. I got started late in October 2010. It involved walking about three times per week for 1/2 hour. Once the weather got too cold at 7:30 a.m. I put it on hold. Overall, a lame attempt but better than nothing.
The thing that bothers me a little about this prompt is that the word 'try' is non-committal; it is a little wishy-washy. What is that saying, "there is no 'try', only 'do'"? I think I will adopt the word 'DO' for this prompt because it is more energizing, focused, and requires a dedicated attempt at something.
So, what will I do in 2011? Well, I will, at a minimum:
1. Walk for 30 minutes four times per week.
2. Play the following three exercise tapes in their entirety: Pilates, Yoga, and Dancing With The Stars.
3. Complete an exercise tape of my choice for 30 minutes three times per week.
With this plan to 'DO', I do not feel I am over-committing myself into a state of failure. It is more than I am doing now and the benefits will make a significant difference in my health.
Wish me luck!
