I hate it when I can’t find time or make time or am just flat out too exhausted to work out. In all of those moments, a glass of wine is just so much easier and enjoyable.
Last week I was slammed with work and had to dig deep to find that hour for my workout everyday. As I expected, at the beginning of the week I was able to make it to BLAST or the gym. By Thursday, the hour and my energy wasn’t there. The day flew by and then I had a pee wee football game to attend. Obviously that was more important than a workout.
But on Friday, my BUSIEST day of them all – a day that started at 6am, involved an 8am Target run, an hour drive to and from the location, and a 5 hour photo shoot (picture of me directing above) – I decided at 5pm I wasn’t making any compromises. The hour was mine. I was completely defeated, so I chose something easy: a 6 mile zone 3 workout (jogging and power-walking with weights, yes, I look like a mommy from the 90’s). An hour and 600 calories later I was dead, but in a good way. I felt like I finished the week strong and showed my stubborn self that the exertian did make me FEEL better. Because I stayed on track, I didn’t make excuses so I could chow down on Halloween candy or not work out on the weekend.
My point is: I know you’re busy, I know you’re tired. My goodness, I am too. But if you can find the hour to do ANYTHING to get your heart rate up, you’ll see so many rewards.Tweet this!
