Good Morning!, Health and Fitness, Mintdom

Good morning!

Previously, I wrote that I started putting a comma in my step number because I thought it looked like a bigger number.   Well, I need more then one comma to make yesterdays steps look bigger!  Yikes!  I walked under two miles yesterday because I did not walk in the morning, AND I did not walk this morning!  Oh, oh, am I on a downward spiral?  Jeepers – this is not good!  Wait a minute! <Taking a deep breath>

OK, I am calming down now.  Let me think about this a little bit.  There are two ways to look at this.  I can look at it as a downward spiral, and kick myself for missing the mark; I set, and call myself names.  On the other hand, I can look at it, as I actually KNOW how many steps I took yesterday.  I am tracking my steps no matter what they are.  I might have missed the mark of doing at least 6,000 steps one day, but the good news is that I KNOW it. I also know that I do not want to make a habit of walking under 6,000 steps a day, and if I am not consistent in taking my morning walk, it is going to take me longer to reach my ultimate goal of walking 10,000 steps a day consistently.  I am choosing the second way of looking at my 2,612 steps yesterday!  Phew – what a relief that is!

Thank you ALL for being here this morning and helping me start my day on a high note.  It is amazing how our thoughts rule our attitudes and our lives. I am a lot more ready to tackle my day now, then when I wrote those numbers at the beginning.  It really IS how I look at things. I will get my steps in tonight!

How do you look at things?  Do you try to find the good in situations or do you allow negative thoughts create your day?  How does that serve you?  Please feel free to share your thoughts on Mintdom

  1. Well – Mint – you know how we look at things – we have Jumping The Broom as a way to start the day – maybe you need to share that in Mintdom Land – Jump away 🙂
