Day 4, 5:30am start again. How am I feeling? Well I might have had a breakthrough today, I have to be honest I don't know what caused it , but suspect it's the consistent practise and sticking to the plan. When you do it, it feels good! So today was easier to wake up.
My exercise section of my morning has been really important to my personal development. I'm someone who loves to be outside in nature and have set goals in my level 10 life plan to enjoy that with walking, running and cycling, in order to get fit and partake in some up and coming charity events next year.
Walking is easy and I enjoy it, I have a Fitbit tracker that tracks my progress and in the last year I have steadily improved. Running ( I promised to be honest) just hasn't happened at all, my future Miracle Mornings have a plan for this that I will share with you all another time.
Cycling is something I want to enjoy and be great at , but it is fairly new to me , well new from when I was a child at least and whilst people say you can't forget how to ride a bike. I'm not sure that is entirely true, as my body has forget the physical even if my mind remembers the process. I bought a bike in the summer and have been out as much as possible with the family and by myself. In August I rode 14 miles around Loch Kathrine in Scotland my biggest achievement yet. So in my exercise section and consistent with my level 10 life goals I have been focused on cycling using an exercise bike for at least 20 minutes every morning.
I started on the most difficult setting and have kept it there with the intention to increase my distance and time everyday. Today I felt stiff, my body tried to resist and I took a moment to consider making it easier or doing less of a workout. Nope that's not an option! Be your best today! everyday! Another pep talk to myself, only my inner voice and narrative for my pep talks seem to have the same voice as the person who reads Hals Audio book!
Laughing aloud on this realisation I did the full 20 minutes and beat my distance again. All completed and done by 6:30am as usual ready to start my day , truly feeling that investing time in my personal development is one of the greatest gifts and challenges I have given myself.
