Getting “back on the horse” (so to speak) is harder than I expected. I will have a few good days followed by days of inertia. Where did I find the time to run 25-35 miles each week? I barely have time to do a 20 minute run?
So I had a good couple of days, and then noticed that this weekend is Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. (Of course I knew that, but realizing how this will effect my routines just sort of hit me.)
I need (NEED) to keep things going. It is crucial to make my workouts part of my routine, even on days I have no routine. So I did something out of character – I invited a group of fb friends to do a fitbit challenge with me. I even gave them the real reasons why. I need to stay motivated in spite of all the holiday celebrations. I need to get my walking and my running in. I need to move my body. I need to eat as clean as possible.
I’m already planning how I’m going to get my steps in tomorrow. 20 min Run, followed by lots of shopping (which equals walking) and maybe walking to my sisters for Christmas Eve dinner, if I can convince my family to join my craziness. Sunday will be harder, but I’m hoping the friendly competition will get me to do what I need to do.
