Today's kick in the Butt
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
I didn't get to the gym last night. It's not a big deal. I did get a run in. I felt the workout. I don't believe in overdoing it. I don't believe the "no pain no gain" slogan. I know better. Slow and steady progress is the way to go for me.
I woke up to a winter wonderland again this morning. Blowing snow. Overcast.
The sun is peaking out now, but the wind is really howling. I'm thinking running today is not a good idea. So it's a perfect day to get over my gym issues and go.
I don't want to spend anymore time in regret. I regret not practicing enough to be able to compete in Calgary. I regret the time I wasted on the couch, rather than making full use of it. I know my emotional state needed me to take care for a while, but what's done is done. I need to find a way to move past it. To not let these recent setbacks drag me down into a depression I can not escape.
I have been surrounding myself with wonderful people who support my journey. Now it's time to work on my attitude. That's all that is keeping me back right now.
I DON'T want this to be me anymore.
I have a strength training plan all laid out on my iPhone. I also have some choreography for the dance competitions that I can start to learn.
12 weeks. Hmm. I wonder what I can accomplish in 12 weeks. Why not find out. I've been looking for a goal to set. Maybe this is it. Set out for 12 weeks of giving it all I've got. See where it gets me.
