Most of you know that I home school my children ( 3 grades. . . 1st, 4th & 6th ) . . .not to mention the other sports/music activities we are involved in as a family. . .
I LOVE my multi-hat job to pieces, BUT I have come to the conclusion that I must Spark less if I am to make ANY Progress.
This Energizer Bunny has finally learned ( or I hope so. . . ) that she must graduate with a degree in Balance. Ha!
. . .I also have learned something about myself - it is not healthy for me to focus on the scales.
So I chalk this lesson up to experience & will move on making Progress in a new way. Boy! . . . this BLC 22 Round has been a struggle for me...:::it's as if I had to fight very hard to find the time to complete anything....so much summer time company, and a sporadic schedule. I am content I did my best..... Lol. But it was not a very normal schedule for sure.
My schedule has been so unpredictable & I need to find "MY" way again towards maintaining my health. I am doing all the right things....etc. have good concrete habits, but with each new "season" that is introduced to me, it seems I must also adapt my fitness schedule with the new season. This can be quite challenging when you have such a great schedule already in place. It can be like taking a nose dive unprepared.
For example - Right as I succeeded in running my 1st
. . . . .circumstances changed so dramatically that I had to adapt my running schedule to something entirely different - a summer by the pool side. Lol!!
Now don't get me wrong.....I'm not complaining...we have had a BLAST this summer. It's just that I was just on a roll with my running progress.
I admit I was looking forward to more mileage, but alas it was not meant to be....at least in that early summer season.
Currently, I am developing my own ...shall I say - unusual fitness schedule.
My first goal is to begin early morning runs, and plan to make my strength training time for late evenings....that's just the way it works best within our lives. If I sneak in anything else it will be alongside my family....unplanned.
I have several fitness family ideas I have been wanting to try out, and I am motivated to begin this new chapter of our education with fitness. Were off to discover new things together.
"Together" is the main theme here. If I need to take a backseat to my own personal running training, and just run randomly here and there, then I will endeavor to enJOY whatever I can. "Joy" is that other important theme too.
I will let you know how I manage to figure it all out. Would LOVE your ideas. . .
Question for YOU - How do YOU handle New life seasons? . . . please comment about it as I would enjoy learning from YOU.
