Ok, and it is in this very way, that the “legitimate excuses” of life begin to sneak in against your resolve.
Today is day 3 of my 30 day “Back in the Saddle” quest for a healthy life style challenge. And already, I see the disasters.
On day 1, I went to the gym…as I documented in my last post.
On day 2, my muscles somewhat sore, and having received a little bad news about a financial situation, I opted for bed instead of the gym.
Today, Day 3, I have been gong ho all day, ready to head for the gym after putting the kids to bed. But lo and behold….I had forgotten that it was my mother-in-law’s birthday, and she was being taken out for dinner by the family.
So I planned…”fine…I will have only a salad at dinner, and then go to the gym after”
Great Plan…Greater problem…did not organize child care!!!
So guess what? I am home babysitting! I am not at dinner and I am not at the gym.
Well, at least I am here writing. That’s a good commitment to keep too 🙂
And I am very happy to share that I have a few beautiful women who are taking this challenge with me. I am very excited about this. And for their benefit, because I allowed myself to be distracted since announcing the challenge, I am hitting the RESET button and we are going to officially start again!
Remember, the first goal is to simply work out for 30 minutes, 3 times a week!
No pressure about what to do, just do something! You could take a brisk walk for all I care, just MOVE!!!
OK, so the countdown is on. Let’s do this!
