Time to get back on the workout bandwagon! Its so easy to let myself lapse into a state of perpetual laziness when it gets hot out and its been smoky from all the fires. I also want to avoid paying for a rec center pass for the summer because that becomes essential in the winter time, so I want to get fresh air while I can. I recently purchased an awesome kick-your-ass DVD by Jillian Michaels called 6-week six pack, and I want to start doing that regularly. I still have to work on balancing my workout, hobbies, and household chores during the week, sometimes I tend to focus on the hobby, or spend all my time cleaning up. Then with work travel, its so easy to get out of the habit of working out. I have a training next week and I am planning on working out every day, especially since this will be an indoor conference. The last one I didn't feel as bad about it because we were out wading in the stream for half a day each day.
I went for a lunch walk yesterday and a short (but difficult) jog uphill after work. I want to make my new habit to achieve some sort of excercise every single day even if it is just my 20-25 minute lunch walk. Something is better than nothing. I finally got some new running shoes that work for me, after a disappointing purchase of reeboks that were the wrong size (rural living means online shopping).
We'll see how I do. I should probably start logging my workouts to keep myself on track.
