ROUTINES- WHAT IF??
Wednesday, September 25, 2019
My Normal routine is get up at 5:25 AM grab a bottle of water and start my work out. I do 30 min of Strength training or Core then I do 20-30 min on the treadmill. I do this at least 5 days a week Monday thru Friday. But this morning my treadmill was messed up. The track is slipping to far to the left and making horrible noises... so I stop. I don't have another cardio routine that I can do. I am a mess. I forget to make coffee .. I NEED MY COFFEE>> how do you forget coffee??? I am totally out of it. I am tired and I am hungry.. I am never hungry any more. Hours later it s 10 am and I still know that my whole day is off because my routine was interrupted. How do you come back from that ??? Today I can't, the chance to fix it by finding a cardio workout this morning is gone. But I can shake it off and I can make a plan for tomorrow until I get my treadmill fixed. I know that my routine is the key to my success and I am not willing to give it up. I am only willing to tweak it until I can put it back in its place. I need my treadmill. I can't do a lot of cardio walks in my home because of the impact on my ankles and hips... my plan was to buy an elliptical next month and start working on that 1 or 2 x of the week instead of the treadmill until my ankles and hips were strong enough to do a week at a time or trade out every other day. Now I may have to buy a new treadmill. So it is not just today's routine or plan that has to change. It means future decisions and sacrifices have to be made. HOW DO YOU HANDLE A BREAK IN YOUR ROUTINE.... are you prepared for a glitch? lesson learned... always have a plan B & C.
