Something To Think About

I saw this today on MSNBC in the Health section.  Makes sense doesn’t it?

    Okay, now I just think you are living inside my head (pretty dark and empty, huh? :-)) Oh, I kid… I read excerpts from a book about becoming a marathon runner by conquering the psychology of telling yourself that you can’t. I’m not trying to run a marathon, but I’m going to run a 5k under 25 minutes for my next birthday (see how I said ‘I’m GOING to’, not ‘I’m going to try to…’!!) I generally run for a few weeks, hate it, and keep telling myself, Why did I even start? This time, I tell myself that I am a runner. I’m running for 2 minutes at a time (walking 3) and telling myself that I’m 2 minutes stronger every time! I had to take it minute by minute today — I DID NOT want to go — but I finished AND I’m 10 minutes worth of running stronger!

    I’m going to start Weight Watchers tomorrow, and I’m going to walk on the treadmill 3 days a week. I can do it, and I will feel better if I start treating my body better… how’s that? Hopefully if I keep telling myself these things, I’ll actually start believing them. :)
