Okay, I have to be honest. I’m a routine type of girl. I’m use to getting off work, having my gym bag in my car, and going straight to the gym once I get off. One perk of being a teacher is winter break, and that break wasn’t used for the long distance runs I had so faithfully planned on. I wasn’t as committed to getting to the gym as I saw in my mind, and not having a routine to follow enabled me to think I had no responsibilities other than catching up with family and Netflix marathons. Getting back in the gym and feeling like I wasn’t right where I had left off was a pretty ugly truth to face, but the longer I didn’t face it, the less my previous work seemed to matter.
It’s February and I’m writing more so for myself than to whomever is reading this. I’ve been back in the gym since early January but Im just now starting to actually enjoy going again. I feel like I’m also starting to feel like I’m talking about something religious. That might be weird or dedicated, you can choose your half full or empty glass. Anyways, don’t lose sight of what you’re working on. Whether you’re just starting, having a rough patch, or at the best state you’ve ever been KEEP GROWING. Don’t get comfortable. Being willing to admit when you’re not at your best is the only way you can really take a step back and see how you can become better. I leave you with something a little cliche but inspiring nonetheless.
