I'm totally stressed.
Work. Family. Life.
Hey... we all go through stress, right?
But I'm not so great at handling it.
Anyway... at this point--when it comes to my workouts--I'm just going through the motions. My body is there, lifting weights or running along the street. But my mind is elsewhere. I'm completely disengaged.
I've had to bring my runs indoors during the last week, thanks to the snow. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe I need to be outside to really feel connected. Something about the "dreadmill" just makes my runs feel... well... automated.
I haven't yet made it to a single Tae Kwon Do class this month. I just haven't had it in me.
And with regards to my February challenge of working out in the morning... well... I can't say I've been successful there, either.
But at least I'm working out.
Maybe I'm not totally present during my workouts. And maybe they're in the evening instead of the morning. But at least I'm doing it. At least I'm showing up.
Keeping the habit is half the battle.
