i do this exercise at the gym where i sit on a 1/2 ball and while i balance, i move a medicine ball from side-to-side. This is not a difficult maneuver when i do one thing: focus. I find that i have to find a point somewhere and keep my eyes focused on that point. When i fail to keep focused, i start to wobble and almost fall off the ball.
i was thinking about this at the gym this morning while doing this exercise. I lost my focus, almost fell off (which wouldn’t hurt anything but my ego) and managed to regain the rhythm of the exercise. I took my eyes off of the focal point.
doesn’t this happen to us in our lives outside of the gym? At this point in winter, i MUST focus on Spring arriving. I’ll go nuts if i don’t. How about your New Year’s weight loss? I keep focusing on that target i’ve set for myself and when i put something in my mouth that shouldn’t go there, i’m losing focus and have to think about my target, again. I can only think the same thing about this course i’m taking. Not that thrilled about being back at it but i have to keep focused on the end and finishing well.
is it easy to keep focused? not for me; I’m easily distracted, like at the gym.. a favorite song of mine came on and that caused me to lose focus…. i hope you have a better time focusing than i do on things.. maybe you can give me some tips if you have any 🙂
by the way, for those of you who have read my blog from the beginning, i said i would update you on my “weight” process. I’m up to 15 pounds on each arm now. 🙂 Now that’s something i have been able to keep focused on!
have a great weekend!
