Moving On


Sunday, March 09, 2014

Sundays have become my day of blah. I don't work out, I try not to run errands, I try to keep it low-key. I make some lunches for the week, working on a knitting project or two, watch some sports, and most importantly, spend time with my boyfriend. He's a PhD student and I work full-time, so it can be difficult to connect sometimes. It's also a good day to reflect on the week and prepare for the one coming.

The past two weeks have been focused on getting into a healthier eating pattern. I made breakfast everyday. I made and packed lunches. We made dinner at home. I ate out only twice, and that's because of commitments to other people. This week's task is to start settling into a routine. I'm done work at 4, and I tend to just come home and flop on the couch before dinner. I tell myself it's because I'm tired and out of energy, and I just want dinner and to "relax." My job ranges from easy to aggravating, and I need a better way to deal with the stress. My dilemma, though, is that the gym I belong to has classes (Zumba, PiYo, etc.) that start an hour or two after I'm done work. How can I keep up the motivation to go back out to the gym? It's easier on Mondays and Fridays because I can go right from work to the gym and hit the pool or the treadmill. But Tuesday through Thursday, I want to go to the group classes. I think I need to just reach deep down and shove myself out the door. So that's the goal for this week: get to the gym every day (except Sunday) after work. If I can get through it this week, maybe I can get through next week.

    I call Sundays a day of rest. I do the things you have listed or nothing at all. It is my day.

Hmmm ... could you change your work hours for there is not such a gap in ending work and starting the gym classes?

How about going to the gym and working out "on your own" in lieu of the classes.

How about talking to the gym about early classes? How about you starting a class?

You can do this!!!
