Exercising to my 15-year-old VHS tape (yes, this is pre-DVD for your younger folks) – with my 15-year older body – I found myself not able to keep up with the aerobics instructor on the tape. So, I just stopped and kept walking – surprisingly she said, “Ok, do what you can do – just walk in place if you are tired.”
Wow, how did she know?
After two weeks of almost faithfully (at least two times a week) trying to keep up with her, it is getting easier. I’m still not able to perform like the people on the tape, but that gray haired lady reflected in a mirror in my exercise room with an old t-shirt and sweats (not the cute outfits of gals on tape) is moving better even though I do walk in place a few times!
How is your walk going? You know the plan you had at the beginning of the year to:
If you are like me – you haven’t exactly kept up with the goals and resolutions, you made in January. Maybe sickness, the weather or just a busy schedule has slowed down your progress.
This is no reason to stop – keep going.
Last week I exercised only two days instead of the six days of the weeks before. But this week back to six days. Three days of aerobics and other three treadmill, stepper & weights.
Maybe we need to “walk in place” until we can keep up.
Isaiah 40:30-31 New International Version (NIV)
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
