Happy Monday! This is my first official blog post. My goal was to get my blog up and running by end of the first quarter (and candidly, I am also avoiding preparing my taxes)! So….one goal reached today!
However….my second goal – and reason for this blog – to jump-start my fitness goals – did not go so well. I got up at 4:30 a.m. with my partner, put on my workout clothes, did some things around the house and was on a roll. UNTIL…I decided to go back to sleep for one hour before going to the gym. One hour turned into an hour and forty minutes and thus I slept through my workout on the first official day of my blog. 😦
So…the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. My first instinct is to beat myself up for not going to the gym this morning, knowing that this blog awaits to hold me accountable. The kinder side of me says today is not over and I have opportunities for some exercise at work (squats, walking lunges and crunches in the office), and perhaps a little time this evening after the grocery and dinner.
My partner inspires me daily. He has a “no excuses” workout plan which spans from the simple and quick, to the long and complex. Making time for some form of exercise everyday, even if it is just some pushups and squats. So today, I will take my cue from him and do the best I can even if it is only for a short time. Consistency is the key.
Best of luck on your own fitness journey today!
