I have struggled with commitments in the past. Ask anyone who knows #NoRing but anyway, so I am challenging all of you, just like I challenge me. I'm going to challenge all of you to commit. As you all know, I am walking mostly every morning, so I am asking you to commit to starting your own walking practice.
What is important about a commitment? What is important about a walking practice?
When you're committing, you're making a promise to yourself, and when you are committing to walking, getting out here on this road, it really takes away so many excuses – “Oh, my gym isn't open,” “I can't lift heavy things.” You're already walking. You can already do it and you make the commitment to the level that you can, so I am starting a four-week walking challenge. And what is it look like? It doesn't look different pretty much to what we're already doing.
I’ll send you an email. You send me a note about what are you committing to. Are you committing to time? Are you going to walk for at least 20 minutes a day? Walk for 10 minutes a day? Are you committing to distance? Are you going to try and walk? And if you are a runner, then this commitment can be running for you, right? If you're a skipper, then it can be skipping. If you are a jump roper and you want to jump rope distance, then you jump rope, so are you up to it? Are you up to this challenge? Are you up to committing to your own health?
Are you up to being able to make promises to yourself and keep them? You decide how long you want to walk. If you just want to walk for 10 minutes, then make that commitment to walk for 10 minutes to yourself. If your commitment is distance and you promise yourself that you are going to walk a quarter of a mile daily, then you'll make that commitment to yourself.
So I challenge you, I ask you, I implore you to join me on this four week walking challenge. You can do it. It'll be awesome!
