Admittedly, I've been sliding down the slippery slope the past two weeks when it comes to doing the things I know I should. I started out the month of December SO strong and did an excellent job through all of my holiday parties, until the last one. And that's when my sliding began.
One of my favorite quotes is, "Falling isn't failing -- the refusal to pick yourself up is failing." I've gradually been finding my way back and of course I absolutely RESOLVED to end the madness and get back to business.
I wasn't sure about the gym hours today. They were open for a few hours on Thanksgiving, so I was thinking they would probably be open today. So I called at 6:00 this morning:
"Happy New Year. Planet Fitness. Yes! We are open and WE NEED YOU. Come on over and keep me company!"
What an awesome greeting! There was no way I could not go. Afterall, someone was there on a holiday so people like me could be there as well. So off I went to the gym this morning for 45 minutes of cardio...and it felt AMAZING!!! Not only was the guy at the desk incredibly motivating on the telephone, there were bananas and oranges on the counter!
I'm tracking. I'm drinking water. I'm exercising. I have my warrior game face on. And now I'm heading to my mom's for a pork & sauerkraut dinner and I'm taking my measuring cups! I will enjoy the meal without guilt!
Let's rock this thing!
