OH please !!!!
I know you’ve lied too!!!
But no, I seriously lied to myself nearly everyday this week.
How? I hit the snooze button.
I left the house later than I prefer.
I didn’t prep my lunch – let alone my breakfast. I’ve been going to bed later than I like. I have not been honoring myself or following the proper steps to reach my goals.
This lie has been spurring other disruptions and causing a ripple effect. By two o’clock my eyes are feeling heavy looking at a computer screen, and calculating numbers at my day job. Typically I’ll get up, grab a drink of water or go to the bathroom to wet my face. Then I’ll walk around the office to get my blood flowing and get back to work.
For the first 13 years of school or so, we train our bodies to have some physical activity for at least 30 min a day. Yet our work days get longer, and we become sedentary unless we intentionally add or incorporate room for that physical activity – outside of the work day.
I’m tired of lying to myself.
I’m tired of being tired.
I miss the motivation I had to get up at 4:45am and head out to the gym, or work out at home. I believe it all starts with having not only a strategy, but people and a support system in place. It also requires making the time for the things that matter most. Of course I have to want to make the changes – and in order for that to happen I’ll have to revisit my goals once more.
I have to drop a few things so I can focus more on my health.
