Random Workout thoughts.....
Monday, September 15, 2008
Well, its like 5 in the morning and I have been up all night studying for my first big exam. I know it was not going to be easy getting my doctorate, but doggone, does it have to be so hard?
Anyway, I have been thinking about how before I got so sick, I was so dedicated to a fitness program that I was mortified when I could not get a workout in. How can I get that drive back? Well, then I realized why I was so motivated. It was because a) I actually enjoy working out, it makes me feel good and b) I am very competitive (which is why I am in a doctorate program in the first place). So that made me realize that those are the two things I am missing lately - I have lost that joy and have also not stuck any competitive carrot in front of my nose. So my goal is to find those two elements and make them again a priority. I am thinking about training for a 5k walk or something. I mean, I walked that and then some everyday in Paris, so I know it can be done. But what if I set a goal to finish in a certain amount of time......that something to think about....... and I really gotta pick up those weights again, I remember when I used to have nice arms, now, not so much. Well I figure these random thoughts should be easily peiced together after a good nights (ahem, days) sleep and be able to be formed into a goal to get back on the fitness wagon!
