Change of plans, peeps.
If you may recall, I had put reading a chapter every day as my March goal for 12 changes in 2012, but since I had been talking about the need to exchange some “want” goals with some “should” goals, I decided to set my priorities straight and make my goal for March to get back into a workout routine.
I am really embarrassed to admit that I had no regular workout routine since last summer. Things got busy around here, I fell of the workout bandwagon and have watched it go by (without making an attempt to jump back on) ever since. I do know that I feel better and have more energy when I work out and despite knowing better, I’ve jumped on every possible excuse when it came to the why I couldn’t go to the gym this day or for a walk in the park that day.
My gym was completely remodeled a few months ago and is much bigger with new machines and a new class schedule. I checked it out a couple of days ago and decided “This is it! This needs to take precedence and become my March goal” .
So, back to the gym it is.
My biggest hurdle is that I work 10-hour days, I am gone from 6:45 a.m. til after 6 p.m. and I am just beat when I get home. There is no way I can fit in a workout before work, because even though I’d dare to easily consider myself a morning person, my alarm clock goes off early enough as it is, but I am hoping that I’ll be able to go at least once after work during the week (Mon-Thurs) and then twice on the weekends (Fri – Sun). Once that becomes a habit, I can then go from there.
What’s your workout routine? When do you work out? Do you have a regular workout schedule or just do it whenever you can fit it in?
Also, if you’re participating in the 12 changes in 2012 project, what is your goal that you hope to accomplish this month?
