Remember playing these games as a child? The goal was always to reach whoever was IT without getting sent back to the beginning for a game violation.
Every now and then someone would get caught and told to return to the beginning and instead of going back, they would quit the game.
Last week, my Asthma acted up and stopped me from the exercise I had become able to do, running on my treadmill and long bicycle rides. So I stopped exercising. I felt miserable.
Monday of this week I decided that rather than quitting, maybe I just needed to go back to the beginning, 15 minutes of a slow walk on Monday, today I was able to go a little faster and do 45 minutes of walking. Tomorrow I will try to bicycle 2 miles.
It was very easy to just quit and to use the Asthma as the excuse to quit.
Now, I know that I don't need to quit, just maybe go back to the beginning. I made it close to my goal for exercise before and I'll get there again.
As always with health issues, remember to be in touch with your doctor and find out what you can and can't do when your health has you down. Just don't quit.
