I am trying something new this year. It is not a New Year resolution as there is not a goal attached. About 2 weeks ago, I started doing 50 curl ups a day. In about half a week, I increased the number of curl ups to 100 a day. Then I set ten minutes aside each day before I go to bed to do the curl ups. Why curl ups? Why ten minutes? It is to ensure that I don’t break my neck or wreck my back. In addition, we often find the following excuses not to do something. We don’t have enough time. It is too boring. We are too tired. It is too difficult and painful. Starting with something small is easier to build up our confidence and maintain our interest. I didn’t think of setting any goal. Just 10 minutes of curl ups a day for now. It is easier to start slowly. A little is better than nothing. By the way, I am now doing 200 curl ups in 10 minutes. Eventually, I will increase the work out time to 15 minutes a day if I feel comfortable.
