My life kind of feels like it’s been on hold for awhile now. I haven’t had a driving in lesson in a few months. I also haven’t been to the gym in over a month. I keep telling myself that I will do all these things when I get a job, when I feel better, when I have a set routine. I have a never-ending repertoire of excuses at my disposal. I am a master at how not to get something done.
Thing is, they are all just excuses. I could go back to the gym now and do a nice easy yoga class. Get my muscles moving a little, even if I’m not ready to hit a cardio class just yet. I already have set shifts at the bar so I can easily plan some driving lessons with my mum or partner. I was doing one or two a week a few months ago. The fact of the matter is that it’s now cold outside (and raining today) and I’m desperate for any excuse to do as little as humanly possible.
I want to stay indoors, glued to my computer, until it’s absolutely essential for me to leave the house. But, if I am successful in this short term goal, I will fail at some of my other long term goals, such as:
- Getting my driver’s licence after 32 years on this planet
- Getting fit and healthy and generally feeing better about myself
- Getting fit enough to do Tough Mudder in November.
None of these are going to happen if I stay indoors and on the couch. Although, the upside is that, if I do, this blog will no doubt be epic (if only in the sense that I will be posting regularly, can’t vouch for the content!). Ah, the tough decisions in life. I suppose I better get my ass in gear. Next week! 😉
