An intriguing title, my fingers just typed it without the thoughts stopping in the brain to be acknowledged, after I updated my status about feeling "procrastination" coming on. This pep talk is about getting my rear in gear and getting to the gym.
I have had excuses / reasons this week so far... appointments after work, all three days. At this point I can feel the internal competing forces of my stated commitment to increase my strength training, especially its consistency... and a lazy sense of procrastination.
The weeds and overgrowth in the yard, the clutter around the house... excuses. It is as though somewhere in my warped brain, I do nothing about them so I will have them as that excuse to not go work out. Yeah, I know it's more complex than that... rest needed, sleep needed, finish line mentality... but not having things in order adds "drag" to the motivation. So, perhaps it is time to refresh that "do one thing" initiative I had going a couple of years back, related to the once again overwhelming pile of backed up tasks.
Meantime, in other news: The laptop is back! After four weeks in the hands of the repair folks. The good news about its tech-spa stay... it was all covered under warranty. And now I'm seeing how well fixed it truly is.
There should be no more excuses to procrastinate. Tonight. Gym. On the way home from work. That's the plan. You can't finish if you don't start!
LIFE is good. Spark on, my friends.
