It is June 28th, and I will not reach my cardio goal this month for the first time this year. I’m disappointed in myself because I know it’s not that hard to do 1,000 minutes of cardio per month. Look at the sidebar on my blog – I’ve done it for almost a year!
It has been almost a full week since I had a good workout, and my body is desperate for one. I didn’t make time for it Wednesday because I was exhausted after being in the airport for nine hours then flying home, but I could have worked out Thursday. I danced, but I’m talking about a structured workout. My body craves them. I could have worked out Friday too, but I slept it then went directly to the airport. Friday night I pulled a muscle in my knee when I got into the swimming pool, but I could have worked out Saturday and yesterday. I was busy, sure, but that’s no excuse. We make time for things that are important to us even when it’s not easy.
I’ve been pretty diligent with my exercise routine over the last year so I won’t be too hard on myself for messing around this week. It is easy to let other things get in the way of exercise, but I miss it. And my body needs it – not just to lose weight, but to feel my best. So today is Monday, and I’m committed to working out hard today, and I’ll continue that through the rest of the week.
Today I plan to get my heart pumping in an intense cardio session because I’m happier when I’m taking care of my body. Will you exercise today?
