Fitness Journey: Day 1 (Take 84)
I’ve had it.
I really have.
I haven’t worked out consistently in (LITERALLY) over 18 months.
Remember that wave-making-fitness-photo that graced Facebook a couple of weeks ago?
I know it offended tons of moms, but in all honesty… I looked at it and said, “My excuse is laziness.” She pinned the tail on the donkey for me. I can say all I want that I work 12+ hours a day… because in reality, if I wanted to make the time, I would.
– I would get up extra early.
– I create my own work schedule, so I could easily find 30 minutes to fit in a run or a walk.
– My sons swim at the YMCA where there is a gym, I could definitely squeeze in 30 minutes while they’re at practice to go workout.
Believe me, my excuse is that I don’t make the time to make it happen.
For me, it’s not just the physical… it’s the mental. I used to love working out because it was my zen. I’m not talking about being a marathon runner, I just want to get myself in a healthy place… where I feel good, inside and out.
My “ah-ha” moment was moderating the P&G “Thank you, Mom” panel with Olympians… Lindsey Vonn, Julie Chu, Taylor Lipsett and Evan Lysacek and their moms. They were so inspirational. Their stories made you see and feel that ANYTHING is possible.
So I took a photo of myself that morning – Monday, October 28th – in my hotel.
Yesterday I worked out for the first time.
Walked 20 minutes on treadmill.
It was Take 84 for me since having Victoria… but that’s OK!!! I’m ready and I don’t have any excuses!!
