As I reflect on this past week, I'm faced with the realization of how important scheduling exercise into my routine can be. The week started out relatively ok, but then has gone down hill a bit since then. On Monday, I got up early to go walk with my friend but the indoor track we walk at was closed due to Martin Luther King Day. So instead, we decided to try again on Tuesday and go back to bed that morning. I did go to Zumba on Monday night at my gym. Loved it!
Then Tuesday morning, Terrie canceled walking and I went to clogging that evening. Each Wednesday evening I have a church obligation, so I'm unable to attend any sort of exercise class, but the plan was to go walking/running in the morning. However, that didn't happen. Terrie wasn't able to go with me and I had thought I would get up and go by myself, but my bed won on that debate. Thursday was supposed to be water aerobics, but I had another church obligation which prevented that from happening. And that brings us to today. I didn't walk this morning, and I'm probably not going to get any exercise in later today. It is so much easier to get up in the early morning if I know someone is expecting me. I find it so challenging to get up and go by myself and usually justify it by saying I could always use the sleep. Which on some days that is true, but it's not a good enough excuse to keep me from exercising. All I have to say is that I always have tomorrow, and then it's a new week on Monday with new possibilities and opportunities to becoming a healthier me.
