Taking it one workout at a time
Monday, April 15, 2019
Perhaps it's just me, but I have a really bad habit of making plans that are often too much for me to maintain. Outdoor projects, gardening, bucket list, etc. It's no different with my fitness and health journey. I get gung-ho and excited and what looks good on a page, blog, or calendar doesn't pan out in execution. I find I push too hard that first 7-10 days, wear myself out, then I'm done for months.
If I want to do something different, accomplish something different, I have enact something different. Starting today, I am only planning one or two workouts in advanced. I will know what strength workout I want to do with a certain time frame to complete it in as well as a 5-10 minute option for cardio the following day.
If everything about success is one step at a time, then I need to stop getting ahead of myself and preplanning everything down to the minutia. I can hopefully head my flare ups off at the pass by doing this too. Takes the pressure off. What can I do to set myself up for success for the remainder of today? What can I do to set myself up for success tomorrow?
I've never been one to do one step at a time- I like sprinting. I am an All or Nothing kind of gal. Maybe I'll enjoy the journey more or learn a little something that I had missed in the past.
Here's to today!
