Then I started setting Personal Goals:
February rolls on in & hubby is going to join the local gym. I was thrilled for him! He went to the gym to sign himself up. After he is done, a text comes through that says he bought me one too! I wasn't offended, I just wasn't anticipating a gym membership. I was thankful, I've always wanted one & now I finally had one.
Side Note: If you know me, you know I can't work out at home because if I break into a sweat, I instantly stop & take a food break. I've known from experience that public setting works best for me. I enjoy classes & the gym setting.
As I went about my day, I was thinking about when I was going to squeeze in "gym time". That evening at dinner, my husband & I chatted about what time I had figured out for us to go.
Yep, that would be the time my alarm would go off on M-W-F. I would quickly roll out of bed & throw on gym clothes, brew coffee, get a cold water bottle ready & I would be there by......
5am when the gym opened!
My husband gasped then told me I was crazy! That's nothing new, I'm a morning person, him, not so much!
So I go on M-W-F & I haven't missed a day since I started.
I don't say that to get a round of applause or to get confetti to magically fall from the gym ceiling.
I do say it because when you set your mind to something you can achieve it.
Sure, I have the voices in my head. But I don't listen to them!
Am I tired my 7:30 as I am driving Child A to school? Yes, but I press on & I don't give in!
The biggest reason I do it, is because my days doesn't start until 6am and 3 days a week, I have my workout completed by 6am & it feels great! I don't have any excuse not to get up & go.
So I encourage you, what goal did you set for yourself & you are "failing" at?
What did you want to do for 2013 & you gave yourself a Free Pass because you just don't have time. Or you just can't do it anyway?
End the pity party & give yourself another shot at trying!
