So I made it back to the gym at last. It seems that I keep doing this. Going to the gym and then taking a week or two off, then going back again. And when I say “going to the gym” I mean 1 day. ONE. DAY. (You read it right!) What the hell is one day a week, or one day every two weeks going to do for my body – aside from confuse it!
I signed up for a trainer a couple months ago and things were going pretty well, (although I’m still not totally convinced her end goal was not to kill me,) and I made each appointment religiously. That is, until I was traveling for work. Then it became 1 week prior to the trip that I couldn’t work out because I had too much to do to get ready, then 3 weeks of traveling, 2 weeks of jetlag and overall misery, 1 long weekend away, and here we are. Full of excuses and feeling a little round in the middle.
So yesterday I vowed to myself to get back on track. Back to running, weights, exercise, eating well and just general healthy and well being. I’m tired of feeling sluggish and low on energy. I want to feel great, or at least proud of myself, everytime I look in the mirror and know I am doing everything I can to take care of myself and my body.
Even though it’s dark and gray (and snowing) here in April, (what the hell, Berlin?!) I know that Spring isn’t so far away and I want to be prepared for when my legs come out of my heavy jeans and thermal leggings to show off their pale glory. I’m convinced it’ll be any day now – so better get a “head start” while I still can!
How do you keep up your motivation to stay fit?
