The new school year routine.

5 09 2012

It’s really easy to get caught up in the madness that is a new school year, and get away from your normal routine.  I have done this often enough to call it a routine of it’s own.  I get in the swing of things, and then school starts, and it all goes out the window.  Today, I got back on the rower, and it felt horrible (until I was done).  It had been nearly 2 weeks, and it felt like it had been nearly 2 years.  I did get in about a half an hour of service/swing practice at McNair park before-hand, which may have made the workout a bit more difficult.  I’m just glad I got my butt back in the gym, and I even came within 20 seconds of a new PR.

I’m loving my classes so far, and although it’s going to be pretty tough to keep on top of things, I WILL make sure that my workouts are still going to be a priority.  The funny thing about working out is that it gives you MORE time, because you have more energy when you are doing it consistently anyway.  The last 2 weeks have been far too much like my old life, and it is already showing.  I’m only down 25 lbs instead of 30, and I just haven’t felt very energetic.  I started moving, because I didn’t want to feel like that, and the same holds true today.  It’s once again time to get the diet and workout plan dialed in, and who knows, maybe this time I can take off another 30 lbs.

I guess it’s time to be on again!  …at least my off again segments are getting fewer and farther between, right?

They’re getting shorter too – and now that you realize how crappy you feel when you don’t work out, they’ll become even less frequent. That’s how it works brother.

Now if I could just get myself to go a couple or few months consecutively working out at a high level, I could get most of this extra weight off. It is getting easier to see food as fuel though, especially when I’m in those on-again phases. Thanks again for stopping by!

You’ll find it much easier, as time goes by to adjust your workout schedule as daily changes pop up. The trick is where you prioritize your fitness – it’s very easy to put off a few days when things get hectic, but you’re getting to a point now where you’re seeing a need to get your sweat on as a way to keep you vibrant and happy – that puts a whole new dimension on it. Just keep after yourself and you’ll be fine my friend.

It’s always my pleasure to stop by.
