I got a variety of things done that were beneficial yesterday and will prove helpful in the week ahead.
My last post before the start of this 125 days of exercise thing was about how losing weight and changing your life is not "hard"
I just wanted to say, in case there is any doubt...
That is still true.
This is not hard.
I just wanted to reaffirm that. And not in a cocky way. I don't care about me being right, I do, however, love that it is right.
And what is right...and what is true...is that everything is only ever about how we choose to see it.
That concept is one I've written about before, but meh, I'll never stop writing, thinking, and talking about it, because it's the truth, and it's glorious, seriously.
Not to say that life can't be a struggle: that tragedy doesn't strike, that fluke accidents don't happen, that additional work isn't unexpectedly given to us.
But so much of life is about our choices.
And the biggest one is how are we going to feel in the moment. I can choose to feel labored, over-worked, under-appreciated, stressed-out, victimized, helpless, hopeless. Or I can choose to feel positive and put my best foot forward.
Yesterday, I choose the latter.
And yesterday, was Day 2 of my 125 day challenge:
Did I exercise?
Yes I did.
I again played basketball, this time for an hour, from 6-7am.
As a result, I earned dollar number 2.
