Is this Black Friday or Abs Friday for you? I’ll confess that in my 65 years, I’ve ventured out to shop on Black Friday two times. That’s right two times. The fact I went a second time indicates I was coerced.
Routine Wins the Race
However, exercise is something I’ve enjoyed my whole life. Yet it is still easy to place it way down the list when prioritizing. Adding routine to an exercise program really helps though. And Friday is Abs Friday in my life.
Perfection is Not Attainable
I’ve accepted that perfection is not attainable…for me. When I miss an exercise day I’ve developed a few tricks to keep me on track.
- Add exercise to your other activities, like parking in the farthest parking space.
- Make exercise fun by finding what brings you joy while increasing your heart rate.
- Most importantly, forgive yourself.
- Tomorrow, a new day dawns
Get Out There
So whether Black Friday or Abs Friday is your thing, get moving!
