I’ve been sick for the last week. It was awful. This time around, I took care of myself by drinking lots of water and getting at least 9-10 hours of sleep a night.
On a phone call with my dad the other day, I was talking about how much I’ve needed to get back into a routine. He asked me when the last time I had worked out was. I just said, “It’s been awhile” because I actually don’t remember the last time. So I got on a workout kick, bought some new workout clothes and a couple DVDs with the idea of getting back into shape–plus I’m in a wedding in May, so it’ll be perfect.
For the last two days, I’ve attempted to get up at 6 am and workout, but there’s just something so comforting about my bed when it’s still dark outside. I don’t know what it is…Flash forward to last night.
I couldn’t focus on getting some work done, so I set my mind that I was going to workout. I appropriately clothed myself and put in Jillian Michael’s Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism.
Sounds like a kick-ass DVD to me.
Twelve minutes into the workout and I was laying on the floor. TWELVE MINUTES. I pushed another five minutes of interval training–I’ll call it interval training because I would do some of the workout, pause the DVD and then lay on the floor catching my breath.
I finally gave up and realized I couldn’t push my body anymore. Besides, my body is still healing from being sick. I text Sophie–my good friend and fitness goddess, somewhat laughing at my failed attempt of this workout.
Day one. Keep trying love.
Oh how so true! It got me thinking about what else I could apply this to…and my devotion life almost slapped me across the face.
How many times have I gotten into this I’m-going-to-read-my-Bible-every-day kick and that lasts for about two weeks. Yet, something gets in the way–like lack of sleep and sleep becomes more important.
Can you relate?
Day One. Take it one day at a time. That’s my new goal. I want a lot of things for myself in my life. to succeed, I know I need to take one day at a time.
What do you need to take one day at a time with?
