My biggest problem lately is consistency.
I realized that when I posted my fitness goals as a reminder and could do nothing but look at them. At one point in time I was doing a lot to work toward my goals. But lately? Nothing. Somehow the fitness aspect of my life just slipped out of my hands once again.
It’s amazing that I so easily give up exercise when I do in fact really like it. But give me a few weeks without access to a gym and I just give up. I’ll walk outside a few times, but then I’ll just let the desire fade for the rest of a week. I might even have a total gym staring me in the face every waking moment of my day (literally, I do) but I still don’t workout as much as I should.
I have ever opportunity too. I have plenty of free time that could be used to workout. I have a few hours each day I could easily devote to exercise. But I haven’t been doing that every dat. Months ago that would have been easy for me to do. Now? It’s not something I have been doing. I’m inconsistent.
I’m not sure why I’m so inconsistent with my workouts. Exercise is part of my whole Operation Sexification mission, because a healthy body is a strong and sexy one. Exercise is part of my bigger health journey. Exercise is what keeps my emotions and happiness in check for the most part. It’s the key to everything, really. Yet I easily let it fall to the wayside.
A few months on, a few months really dedicated, then a few months off. It seems to be a pattern with me. Even though I love being active I somehow manage to find myself time and time again getting to a point where I am not active or exercising enough. Taking days (or when it stretches to weeks) off really messes with my body and mind. It doesn’t do anything good for me, yet I let it happen.
I just need some regular exercise. Even if that is just walking for 30 minutes every day. The key here for me is EVERY day. I’m at the point where I can’t skip days and take days off. Especially not the three or four days between exercise that sometimes I’ve been taking. No, for me I need to exercise every day.
It frustrates me that I’m not consistent like I should be.
It frustrates me so I’m going to work on that. 30 minutes of something every day. At least until I leave Oregon in July. (Because all bets are off on that roadtrip cross country.)
How about you? Are you consistent with your workouts or, like me, is that something you need to work on?
