I feel like I’m walking into an unfamiliar house.
It’s been weeks since I wrote about my fitness activities, although I’ve never missed a workout. It feels a little strange, and, to be honest, I had a lot of trouble thinking of what to say. I started about 15 times, and each time deleted it, only to begin a again.
How do you catch up when you’ve fallen so far behind?
You’re probably wondering why I fell behind. The simple answer is, “work.” My work and my business have taken over my focus. Projects have demanded my attention, and I succumbed to the pressure — no longer could I find enough time to write a well thought-out blog entry about my workout of the day. Writing and sleeping were two of the first things to go.
I’ve also neglected the exercises Dave and Ryan gave me to correct the shifting in my hip and help my shoulder pain. I know they work, but I’ve found it hard to work them into my already-packed schedule.
I’ve been starting to lose focus over the past few weeks, too. Ever since SXSW, when I let myself indulge, I’ve found it hard to get back to the clean eating I was doing before. I’ll eat on target for a few days, but when the weekend hits, all bets are off.
I mentioned to Zach my pants feel a little smaller. I wondered out loud if it was muscle (I have been doing a lot of squats!), and he laughed at me. Something tells me he does not agree. We scheduled a body comp for this week. I’m dreading it. I fear I have fallen way behind in my goals. I had set a goal of reaching under 20% body fat. There’s no way this week’s measurements are going to say that.
Sometimes it takes a kick in the pants to get my head back on straight. I need Zach to fuss at me. I can hear him now: Get your S**T together, Cindy! It’s not that hard!
We all lose focus from time to time. But I don’t want it to get to where I fall down and can’t get back up.
I’ll let you know how the body comp turns out.
