Many bloggers have chosen a word to represent the new year. I wasn't planning to do so, but when I was out for a walk on my lunch break today, I thought of the perfect word for my year.
My word is: go.
Short, sweet, and simple. It says what I want to accomplish.
Newton's First Law of Motion states: "Every object persists in a state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled by an external force to change that state."
Sometimes I'll get on a good exercise kick, last a few weeks, and then something will happen where I fall off track for weeks. I don't want to do that this year. Sometimes I just need to put my sneakers on and GO. The first few steps are the hardest.
When my body is at rest, it remains at rest. Watching Biggest Loser on TV is easier than throwing on my sweats and heading out the door.
When my body is in motion, it remains in motion. Usually for about an hour at a time.
I set a goal of 200 hours of exercise in 2012, minimum. I know that time of exercise isn't as important as intensity, but sometimes just getting off the couch and doing it makes all the difference
So my word for 2012...
