There is no "or"

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

I have three great co-workers who work out at the same gym as I do. Here is a short inspirational conversation I just had in the hallway:

Gym Teacher: See you at the gym tonight?

Me: Actually, I was just thinking...

Gym Teacher: About what time you're going?

Me: No, I was thinking about whether or not I want to go to Advent services tonight.

Gym Teacher: You mean, go to church or work out?

Me; Not necessarily. I could do both.

Gym Teacher: That's right. You can do both. There is no "or." I'll see you at the gym.

I love being accountable for my workouts. So here is the new no-or plan for the evening:
4:00 Get home. Change into workout clothes. Marinate chicken for dinner. Light housework.
4:30 Drive daughter to dance and then drive to gym.
4:45 Workout. Goal: a 5k on the treadmill, both walking and jogging
5:30 Get home and shower. Make dinner: Grilled chicken salads.
6:00 Eat dinner.
7:00 Church service
8:00 Get daughter from dance
8:15 Monitor that kids are reading while I score essays.

Sounds like a productive night!

    Love it! Yup . . . there can't be an 'or' when it comes to taking care of ourselves.
