Sunday Sweats Vol. 15

I'm having two conflicting thoughts right now. One is that it's that time of year again... the other is, this time, I'm doing it for me.... We all know I have a love/hate relationship with fitness. Once I'm at the gym, I'm good to go. Getting me there is another story. 

I've recently been finding myself back in the gym. I know that this is partly because I can now drive myself there and it no longer turns into a 3 hours tour. The other part is that it's warm out so I no longer want to burrow to the core of the Earth to feel any semblance of warmth. I don't know. Maybe I'm just getting tired of being uncomfortable in my body again. 

I'm putting this out here because fitness, for me, is hard. I'm up and down. I'm motivated and on the wagon and then three weeks later I'm holding the matches while the wagon is engulfed in flames. The thing is - it's all ok. Every bit of it.

For me, fitness is something that I know is important. Especially if I want to live a long, active life. The thing I've come to realize is that I don't have to be 100% about it. I don't have to adhere to a strict gym schedule or be in a yoga class every week like clockwork. There's nothing wrong with it but I know that doesn't work for me. As long as reaching for healthy options happens more often than I reach for fries or pizza, I'm good. I know that I will never have 6-pck abs - and that's ok. I don't need to have them. As long as I am happy, healthy, and can keep up with my niece everything is as it should be.
