Learning Along the Way
Tuesday, March 08, 2016
So I am about 3 weeks into this lifetime journey toward a healthy me. Yesterday, I fell into a bit of a slump. I came to realize how programmed I am by other's schedules, even if they should have no effect on me. I have been in the habit of going to the gym right after my husband returns from his workout on weekday mornings so that I don't have to put the dog in his crate. I have a Bichon who is almost 16 years old, and he suffers from anxiety. If we don't crate him when nobody is home, he will freak out and poop and pee everywhere! He's a Mama's boy, and has become even more so since I have been unemployed. Yesterday, my hubby had to leave extra early for work, and so he couldn't work out before leaving as our gym doesn't open until 6:00. Rather than getting up and going to the gym anyway, I slugged around feeling very unmotivated. I finally kicked myself into going for a short workout later in the afternoon.
Today, I got back on track doing my regular workout in the morning. I really have to realize that what I am doing is for me! I am the queen of excuses. I really do feel better after moving, but getting there often seems like such a chore, even when I have all the time in the world. I long for the day when I wake up excited to work out. Will it ever happen?
