Just a short thought this morning. My world is getting busier as it always seems to in this run up to Christmas. This is relevant because in the summer I started an exercise programme alongside the 5:2 diet which I’ve reported on before. What is interesting to me is that I did the same at around the same time last year. And at around this time of last year I wobbled and ultimately abandoned that programme. I am determined not to do the same this year.
I am thinking ahead to the next few weeks and all the days I have exercise scheduled also have other things attached to them. Fun things like visiting friends and relatives and Christmas shopping. I know it would be easy to be too busy to manage the exercise, but that’s just not good enough. For that reason, I am now committing to keep going with the exercise through these busy weeks, through the Christmas period and into next year.
Do you have any commitments you find it difficult to stick to? What helps make the difference for you? Do you have any suggestions for me, or is it just a matter of making the decision and not taking no for an answer from myself?
