I'm not patient~I'm the total opposite-I'm impatient. Impatience flows through all areas of my life and weaves itself into places I would rather it refrain from.
I wrote earlier about sticking to fitness goals. Since that writing~I have tried to stick to the plan (frequently, LIFE gets in the way) and I have not reached one single goal. What then...throw in the towel, quit, change gears, stick to the plan....
My running this past two weeks was non exsistent. When my running fails, my nutrition seems to fall as well. There are a slew of "legitimate" reasons I wasn't running and I'm tempted to list them, but in the end it usually boils down to~ 'shit happens' and it happens to everyone.
What to do then?
Backing up, looking at things in retrospect, listening to those around me who possess much wisdom....
Chalk it up to a bad two weeks, stick to the plan in place, adjust if needed and remember to make myself a priority. All too often I (and I suspect others out there) put off something we want/need to do for ourselves because "other" things need to get done or "someone else" needs us to do something. When I don't take time for myself and my health, wellness, fitness -REGARDLESS of how much I have going on, I (and I suspect others out there) allow stress to creep back in. When stress creeps back in, what I have to offer others--- diminishes.
Next weeks work outs are planned and scheduled into another busy week!
