Finishing the Job

Have you ever started something, but never finished it? I know I have. I don’t know how many times I started a project, laid out the plans and schedule for it, only just to be done at day one.

Many workouts have started that way. I plan out the calendar of workouts, only to never start a single activity. I know I need to start losing the weight. I know I feel tons better, just by getting up and moving. It’s always some excuse of why I can’t. Need to do school work, can’t wake up in time in the morning, my child gets in the way or needs to be monitored.

Well, that has to stop. You can actually workout with your child. Mine loves it, even if for just a few minutes. But this is the first step of showing her how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I heard a high rank military officer state that the first thing you should do is make your bed. We always feel like there is so much to do, and we can never finish any task. Make your bed after you wake up. It may be the only task you get done, but you did it.

There is time to get a work out in. There is time to get something done each day, even if its just a small task of the bigger project. Its like this blog. I think I have started five or so blogs over the course of time. I just never got past the first post. I set out to make sure I get at least a post out on Monday. Then I have at least one task done for the week. I know this blog can and will be successful. I just have to give it time, keep working at, and get feedback from you, the readers.




The Beginning

So here we are.

I am starting out at 328. I sometimes feel like I have the energy like I did in high school, but I don’t. I, like many people, have started and stopped, for various reason. I can’t anymore. I’m tired of just being tired. I made a decision to join our school’s running club after school, so I no longer have any excuses about running.

They say you get that runner’s high once you get going, and at first, I thought it was a joke. But its true. For someone who hates to run, I actually love running. It gets me outside, fresh air, and it just is relaxing. Granted it is also tiring with the actual running, but that’s just because I know my body isn’t used to it and it will take time.

But this is where I am. You are always welcome to post comments and join the journey.
