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!
