Even since Lauren died, I have not done much of anything. It was as if I lost the will to keep things up and then life got in the way. Really, I have no reason not to work out because it would have helped me deal with whatever I was going through. By the way-- my gym is across the street. It takes more energy to walk past my gym then it does to walk into the gym.
I know that I want to be fit and healthy and I do a lot of talking about it, but the thing is for me I will not really do it until I am truly ready to do it. It might take the aha! moment for me to really get myself to the gym on a regular basis. My friend Liz had one of those moments recently after a workout she had and wrote a little blog post about it.
One of my goals for October is to run 50 miles total and I have already planned my running schedule to keep me on track. In addition, I have planned the rest of my fitness schedule.
I am crossing my fingers that I will stick with this schedule or have my aha! Moment.
