No Matter What Pick Yourself Up and Move Forward — Day 124
It was a cloudy day outside, but that didn’t prevent me from having a pleasant morning run. I felt surprisingly loose and limber today, which allowed me to run for a bit longer than I usually would. I guess my stretching routine is starting to pay off! Anyways, starting the day off with some exercise (even if it’s not too strenuous) always sets the tone for the rest of the day. Not only do you feel great afterwards, but all the other tasks laid before you seem a little bit easier.
I had an unexpectedly busy time after getting home this evening, as I had to run some additional errands and take my kids to the dentist. Needless to say I was exhausted once everything was said and done, so much so that I almost convinced myself to skip tonight’s workout and make some kind of dessert. I actually had the mindset that I was going to take the rest of the day off, but I changed my mind about an hour or so later. Even as I’ve come this far in my fitness journey, it’s still so easy to make excuses and rationalize unhealthy decisions. I’ve gotten a pretty good handle on my cravings, but these feelings are another issue entirely. Luckily, I’m disciplined enough now that I can still manage to do what’s best for me in the end.

My skin hasn’t looked this good since I was in my early twenties! Hopefully it continues to clear up even more.
Even though I felt like I was going to collapse, I got a really good workout in. In fact, I arguably did better compared to days when I had more energy! This just goes to show that you never really know your limits until you test them, and once you get there, you’ll be surprised by what you’re capable of. The only hard part is surpassing your limits on a consistent basis, but that’s what I’m on this journey for.
