I like to change the route I take often so I don't get bored and ultimately quit. Today I decided to walk around through my neighborhood a little bit. That's not always such a good plan because once in a while I get caught by someone who wants to chat. One thing I have learned is that I really should not stop during my walk. Once I start I need to just keep going - but of course I don't want to be rude either.
I got lucky today - no one seemed to be out in their front yards and ready to have a conversation. I was able to accomplish my exercise uninterrupted - yay! I'm all about rewarding myself for doing something good. When I got home I fixed my favorite green smoothie and went in to take a nice long soak in the tub!
It's important to get some form of exercise every day for about a half hour when you have Type 2 Diabetes. On those walks I think about my day, and I plan what I will write about. When I walk, it's a nice time to relax and renew my body, mind and spirit.
Speaking of renewal for our spirit, my friend Lucinda Berry Hill, author of Coffee With Jesus, has graciously given me permission to use this beautiful poem she wrote for today's blog post. We all need a reminder once in a while about our spiritual walk, and with Whom we walk.
Here are some powerful positive affirmations to help you in your wellness journey.
Today is POSITIVE THINKING DAY!!!!!!!!!! So as you embrace a more healthy lifestyle, begin thinking "I want to do this for my health" instead of thinking "I have to do this for my health". It makes such a difference! Keep your eyes on the prize - the end result is a happy HbA1c!
