I am the healthiest I have ever been in some ways. The biggest is the fact that I am going to the gym at least three times a week. However, some weeks it has been a helluva lot harder to make it there. In the first few weeks of January. I literally just needed to make it to the gym, which was not easy. I needed to get up out of bed. I needed to walk all the way over to the gym. Then, I needed to actually do a workout there. It was a trial.
As the weeks moved on, that changed. There were still obstacles in the way. I would sleep in. I would not feel up to actually going to the gym. Sometimes, I just didn’t want to do anything and stayed at home. I still made it to the gym a couple times those weeks. Now, I am strictly three times a week. Sometimes, it is not every other day. Sometimes, it’s every day, but I am working towards a better body and an overall healthier life.
This next week is going to be another tough one, especially Monday and Tuesday. I have to make it to the gym today, since I think my next stable gym day would be Wednesday. Tomorrow, I am going to be exhausted. I am going to get done with work at the pizza place, and then head home. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for me to actually plan for the gym knowing I close tonight. Tuesday, I have an event after work so even if I sleep on Monday I am going to be working all day and then heading to the Hudson Pride for them closing down their current center and fully moving to their temporary space.
Wednesday means I can easily make it to the gym after sleeping throughout the night. It means that I will wake up and need the revitalization that comes with working out. However, before Wednesday, it means I need to get to the gym today. That also means getting all my stuff done that I need to get done.
I am working my butt of today before work. I have to go to the gym. I have to do laundry. I have to write 100 days healthier me, I have to write 60 Day Superhero, I have to write a blog post for my Sentinels page, and finally actually edit a chapter of my novel. This is all the stuff that I need to do before I go to work. It sounds nigh impossible, but I will get it done one thing at a time and then go on with my day o work.
I love working out. It’s something I almost seem to forget in the tediousness that working out seems to be at first. I just get up each day and make a decision to be better. Working out is part of following it through. So busy as today will be, here goes nothing.
