Friday almost over. Did nothing today. Will try to do better tomorrow, but must devote most of the day to cleaning up and cooking for company for Sunday.
Please do not leave advice or feedback. Thank you. Prayers welcome.
The commitment is thirty minutes of exercise before midnight of any of
the following format: running, jogging, a combination of
running-walking-jogging, swimming, walking, attending a fitness class
(something that requires me to leave the house), stationary biking,
biking, dance class, aerobic class, yoga, karate (or other martial
arts). I have been having a little bit of a problem with getting myself
to do the running plan consistently. I typically result in walking,
which is fine; that's infintely better than nothing at all. But, I do
want to provide a circumstance for myself to run, if once I get to the
gym or "get out there" I feel up to it. So, I am going to restart the
running plan today, and wherever I start with the run/walk combination,
that will be where I'm at. I'm changing the commitment in the following
way: on days when I am assigned to run by the running training program,
I need to wear my running clothes. I do not actually have to run, but I
need to wear those clothes on running days. If If I do not run, I will
wear (or bring) the running clothes on each day until I do the assigned
training, and then the schedule will resume from that day. I am doing
Ran 1 minute, walked 2 minutes, times 10. Biked 4 minutes forward and 2 minutes backward. Walked about 7 minutes.
I have checked my email and planned out my day
Today I need to:
check on expts, get mice, plan out expts for m/td
email Mu/update notes

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"
