Remember a few months ago I wrote about no excuses?
And then I started a new job.
And, well, it would be really really easy to make excuses right now about why I can’t work out.
Getting used to working full-time again after not having worked in an office for months is pretty tiring.
It’s the holidays.
Although if I can find a reason to wear antlers outside of the month of December, I will bring them back.
Sorry, I digress. And thought this post needed a picture.
But like I said, keeping exercise in my schedule has not been easy. The above reasons don’t help, but in all honesty, working out is not my top priority right now. I just got a new job, and I would like to kick ass at it. I’ve run 12 races this year, including six half-marathons and a full marathon. I’m really happy with that and proud of myself for that. I also know that even if I’m not working out 5-6 days a week like I was when I was marathon training, I’m not going to gain back all 50 pounds; I still eat healthily enough.
But I’m trying to make progress on my December challenge and still trying to get workouts in. I’m doing what I can. Since I posted about the challenge, I’ve done SurfSet (review coming later this week!), FlyWheel, run a race, and I did yoga last night I was still feeling exhausted after the weekend, but dragging myself to yoga (and running into Kendyl there!) helped. Too many days last week, I dragged gym clothes to work and didn’t use them. That wasn’t an option last night.
So I’m just going to keep doing what I can. It’s all I can do. I can work out more days than not (and realize that even on the days I don’t get a tough workout in, I’m still walking a mile each way to work), focus on my new job, enjoy the holidays and remember how much I’ve accomplished this year fitness-wise.
