I'm Adding Something for Lent.

Yes, I know this post is technically a day late in the world of giving something up for Lent, but as I was looking at things to limit/reduce/stop/give up, and my fiance suggested Diet Pepsi while I suggested ice cream, yesterday I thought I would try something different – I would add something.  No, I wasn’t adding extra food, and I wasn’t adding chocolate, and I wasn’t adding sleep – nope, yesterday I decided that every day during Lent, no matter what, I would spend at least 15 minutes on my exercise bike.  I made no requirement about actually what I would do once I sat on said bike: Some days I might just sit on the bike, maybe other days I would pedal like a madman, while most days I figure I would at least just casually ride, but the goal is to at least get on it, and let everything else happen at will.

So how have I done?  Well, for yesterday and today I have not broken my Lenten goal.  Yesterday I was on the bike for 18:30, and today I was on for 17:25, and the best part? I actually pedaled on both days! Why this?  Because I’m still having my own issues about getting out of bed and exercising in the morning, the dog walks aren’t putting enough umph yet in my exercising as the weather hasn’t broken yet (Yes, I’m a cold-weather wimp, and so is our dog sometimes), and I figure if I just, at sometime during the day, sit on the bike, that my legs will do what they are supposed to do.

Sitting on an exercise and bike and then figuring out what to do…
