I haven’t set monthly goals in quite some time, but I think it was a good idea that I wrote some Friday because I already knocked out one of my June goals – cleaning out my closet! I went through everything and pulled out things that I haven’t worn/don’t fit well and put them all in a huge pile to donate:
When I got my style makeover last year, the questions we asked about each piece were:
- Do I love it?
- Is it flattering?
I had to answer yes to both of those or else they made it into the pile, which later transformed into brown paper bags which are more presentable.
It feels so good to lighten the load!
So. I am really struggling with exercise lately. This weekend I did bike around for a couple of hours on Saturday and did a 14 mile ride on Sunday because it was SO gorgeous outside, but I didn’t make it to the gym once last week during the week! I’ve been doing walks to and from work most days (~2.6 miles), but have really been having a hard time doing legitimate exercise and making it a priority. I just haven’t felt like going to the gym!
I think part of it is that I have been insanely busy with work/life (with a pretty big announcement for me coming soon on that one!) and also because I just finished my last long race of the season, which left me feeling pretty defeated. I have had lots of obligations/things I want to do after work that have involved alcohol, which makes it hard to wake up early the next day to exercise. But these are all just excuses. I need to get a handle on this before it gets out of hand!
So here’s where I need your help.
What’s your #1 tip for busting out of an exercise rut?
