I have often thought that January is the SADDEST month … post-Christmas and holiday, it almost seems like 31 days of afterthought.
I hate to exercise … because I am a type 2 diabetic, I must exercise.
BUT January is brutal when it comes to getting off the couch and out the door! B.R.U.T.A.L! For many reasons that you already know!
(Author’s note: if you haven’t yet purchased my book, 42 Ways to Motivate the Sedentary Diabetic to Actually Exercise, please click HERE. Please also tell your friends and family about this! THANKS!)
But I have to exercise in January, every day, every day, every day. I am insulin resistant and exercise opens my cell doors to allow insulin inside … see the magic here?! Then my blood sugar is drawn down due to this.
Sooooo, here we are, all wrapped up in our inertia, sitting at home or in the office, as sedentary as our coffee table. What do we do?
Get up, walk to the door, exit the door, take a 1 minute walk, return to house, enter door, sit back down.
I’m not asking much here, folks! 1 minute! But it is January so I know I minute in January may feel like 1 hour but you’ve got this!
The theory behind this is that 1 minute might turn into 2 and 2 might turn into 5 and 5 might turn into 10, etc.
All in January! What a superstar you are!
