Didn't give up, but....

Thursday, September 13, 2012

So, you know how sometimes life gets in the way? Anyone who has ever been a parent will understand this especially. Yesterday, life got in the way. In a good way but still.

My 3 year old was just super extra clingy yesterday, and I didn't make it to the gym. But you know what, that's ok. Today was supposed to be my rest day, but I decided to just flip the days around and I'll go tonight.

Why am I able to do this? Because I have to go with the flow of my life, and I know that I have extra time at other points in a week where I can squeeze some gym time in. So, if I don't make it for one of my scheduled workouts, for whatever reason (other than flat out laziness emoticon ), I can make it up at some other point during the week.

I'm learning that it's so important to be flexible with life. I will not always be able to control certain things. If I pigeon-hole myself into ONLY going to the gym on certain days and times, then I will never make it. Because as soon as things start to get frustrating and thrown off schedule, I will just give up.

So again today I am committing to myself. I am committing to being ok with schedule changes and upsets. I am committed to doing what feels the best for my life and family and myself. I am also committing to getting my 20 minutes in tonight, even if I half to wait until 8:30 to do it!

    I completely understand!! I have an 8 y/o. I quit working out like I should because life got in the way, but I never really though about the fact that I can't stay so strict on a schedule. Until I read your blog that actually never crossed my mind. emoticon I need to change how I look at my "schedule" for things. I love your wonderful attitude also. emoticon
