Let Lady Luck be your workout buddy.
In The White Bathrobe of Disappointment, I shared my struggle with mornings. I’ve benched the WBD on weekdays but ... yes, there's a but.
Cue the excuses. It's been cold, dark and snowy for weeks on end, and I’ve continued to fail at working out in the morning.
I tried setting the bar really low: 10 minutes. That's all I've asked of myself. Sometimes that start-small approach works for me, to get me up and going.
But this exercise funk has been a particularly deep one, and I just haven't been feeling it.
So now what?
The truth is that I am never actually going to feel like it.
So I decided to "Roll With It," to let fate pick my a.m. exercise since I seemed incapable. Game on! I made a list of six options and rolled the die, similar to the chores game, Die Happy.
I thought about calling this workout game “You’re Not Going to Die, You Big Whiner.” But mornings are hard enough without sarcasm and self-loathing.
Give me coffee, space and gentle encouragement.
I am only on day two, but since I’ve made the Internet my accountability partner, I am putting it out there. You’re witnessing a live experiment of sorts. Well, luckily for you all, there will be no live viewing should I ever roll a two.
Anyone want to play along?
And spring is bound to show her perky face one of these days, right? So I want Boomer to know he shouldn’t abandon all hope. Morning walks are coming to a neighborhood near you soon, Buddy.
