This Isn't A Sprint. It's A Marathon.
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
To say it's been a rough month would be an understatement. To say my exercising hasn't slackened off or that my food choices haven't occasionally been unhealthy as a result would be a lie. But I haven't quit. I'm still getting back on the horse so-to-speak. And apparently I've done it often enough to keep moving in the right direction. I just weighed myself for the first time in a month and I've lost two pounds since my last weigh in. Two pounds in a month may not sound like much, but considering my words as I approached the scale were, "Let's see how much damage I've done" I think two pounds is an amazing victory. It's less than it was before and that's what matters. Forward momentum.
Over the next two weeks I have to complete not 1, 2, or even 3 projects. I have to complete no less than 7 major projects. Projects that I would normally spend an entire week on EACH. And I have to get them all done in the next two weeks. I didn't even procrastinate my way into this mess. It's just how the timing worked out. So frankly, any exercise at all during this time is a miracle as far as I'm concerned. I just have to hang in there for the next two weeks, though. It'll start to slowly let up after that. By the end of June I should be able to return to the level of attention to my exercise that I would prefer to have. And that's okay. That's life and I knew it would happen. That's why I set my goal 2 years down the road. This isn't a sprint. It's a marathon. :)
