Self-discipline is a muscle, and like any muscle, without exercise it atrophies. So exercise it.
I’m starting to see the 2 critical signs that I’ve begun to genuinely regain the habit of exercise.
One of the toughest things about getting back in shape is not overdoing it to the point that the exercise makes you physically ill. Backing off a little is better than vomiting mid workout, I think.
I’ve been doing yoga daily for weeks now, and yesterday I broke my streak. At least I broke the daily YOGA streak, but not the REAL streak.
I’ve spent 2 years getting woefully out of shape. Worse, I’ve spent 2 years losing the habit of regular exercise. So now, I’m not just exercising, I’m relearning the habit of exercise, by practicing the practice.
