A Glass of Syrah Today For a 2-A-Day Tomorrow….

A 12 hour work day with a working lunch later yesterday created a missed gym session for me.  I am a firm believer in making time not excuses.  Some of my favorite quotes to create motivation to get my workouts in are sayings like “While you’re having another beer she/he is running another mile” or “You’re in Five Guys, they’re in the GYM”.

Yesterday though…. Yesterday was one of those days when I left the office at 7:00PM and I could have went to the gym (I had my gym bag with me for my lunch time workout). Instead I went home, LO took one look at me and so dutifully decanted a bottle of 2008 NxNW Walla Walla Valley Syrah and handed me the glass.

Waking up this morning knowing that I didn’t get the gym in yesterday was eating at me.  I have a three mile run scheduled today which is planned out for this evening when LO and I can run together, but I left my gym bag in the truck and WILL get my postponed gym workout in at lunch as well!  Sometimes life throws curves and you need to adapt your schedule.  I’m making sure that my decisions yesterday DO affect my decisions today.  I didn’t get the gym session in yesterday so I need to get it in today and also keep my run for today.

I might not have stuck to my schedule perfectly but I’m not creating EXCUSES as to why I can’t get my three runs and two gym sessions in this week.  I’m creating SOLUTIONS as to how I can!

  1. Great reminders….I woke up with a pounding headache, but made myself get to the gym today. It’s much worse tonight but I pushed through and met my goals for today. Now I can watch TV and not feel guilty.

    Your new blog look is good. I liked it the other way, too, though. I’m no help. Ha.

  2. Hate it? No way! I prefer to be different on my blog though..which is why mine is so random and nothing like anything I have seen so far. I picked out what “I” like. So honest opinion is…the other one caught my eye…maybe the picture layout being large? This one looks more common place. But who cares? It’s YOUR blog. Make it how YOU want it..everyone else can adjust or not. Ha. Just my 2 cents.
