More Signs of Dedication

September 25, 2007 · 6 comments

I’ve never been great at sticking to things, and certainly not exercise.  But I’m seeing lots of signs that I am changing and staying with the program.

Like yesterday, when I got up at 3:45am to lift weights for 45 minutes before I got on a plane to Chicago.  After a long day I ended up getting home at 11:00pm and proceeded to get caught up via DVR on my Monday night shows I missed, such as High Stakes Poker, Prison Break and Heroes.  I didn’t get to bed until almost 1:30am.  But there I was waking up this morning at 5:00am and putting in another 45 minutes of lifting.  And then after work today I did 37 minutes on the treadmill as I started week 2 of my cardio program.  Serious sweat.  My kids laughed when they saw how sweaty I was.  My daughter asked if I poured a bucket of water over my head.  And I love it.

Now that’s not a work and sleep schedule I would condone, but it’s pretty typical to something I might have been before I was working out only now I have the added benefit of sweating a couple of times a day.  That can’t be a bad thing.

I almost feel like I can do this.

Georgie - Well I hadn’t thought about it that way, but I guess you are right! Another reason why working out at home is a good thing.

Michelle - Thanks for your support!

Working out at a gym takes dedication, never mind working out at home with elements like TV and a big comfy couch to get you offtrack. It’s not easy staying focused and motivated but you sound like you are on the road to success!
