So-This weekend didn’t end up with camping (too much rain!), but with a trip to the arcade!
Nate decided to hit the jackpot!
Later, we met up with some friends and played some mini golf:
and ended the night with a stop at Applebee’s:
I devoured an Oriental Chicken Salad.
I am really going to try to make the effort not to let the upcoming holidays get too much in the way of my planned workout routine.
I have yet to lace up my new shoes and hit the treadmill. I am hoping that this will happen tomorrow.
I like that I got a touch of the “weirdos that actually like exercising” feeling when I have been on a few good roles with routines.
Yes, I have thought that ‘weirdos’ who actually enjoy exercise have a genetic advantage that people like me lack (and people who willingly run marathons are simply nuts). Now I know that’s not exactly true.
So much about my healthy living journey has been about getting committed. (I really think that this is the hardest part of all.) Committing, falling off the wagon, recommitting, wavering, recommitting – again and again and again, everyday. I’ve finally stopped expecting it to be ‘easy.’ Maybe some people actually do have that gene that makes then WANT to sweat. I have the gene that makes me really enjoy pushing myself in things if I’m interested enough.
Truthfully – although I’ve been wanting it to become a habit, it never has been easy. I wake up every day and have to recommit myself. Whether or not I did fail the previous day. I’ve got to choose to do the things that I know I ‘should.’
Over time, I’ve realized that making the choice to be active and eat well makes me feel so much better, physically and emotionally, so most of the time, you would think the choice is easy. But it’s always a choice.
“Make one healthy choice. Now make another.”
