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!

    Hey, you can do anything you set your mind to do!!!!

    Thanks for the comments on my blog and sparkpage by the way!!!! It wasn't easy to move my grandparents but it was necessary I guess. How have you been other wise? I keep wanting to chat with you so much more than i have been but finding the time right now seems darn near impossible!!!

    Andy's first football game last week went great! I can't remember if I told you already but they won 22 - 8 and Andy had an impressive game.

    Kelly is loving being back in school again. She drives a person nuts wanting to work on her "skills".

    Have a great day and talk to you later!!!!

    Hey Dough! You can definitely do a 5k, make a plan and start training for it. We both know if I can do this-so can you!
