This weekend played out just as crazy as I expected.
And I didn’t make running a priority. I could say there were lots of reasons. I could say we were crazy busy. I could say my kids came first this weekend.
But really, I was just making excuses
I could have run right after Shoo’s field trip. It’s not like I’ve never picked him up from school sweaty before.
I could have run after I picked him up from school. Beer Geek was home, as was Jones, not to mention I have a treadmill.
I could have run after Shoo’s soccer game (we won’t even pretend I’d consider running before a morning game).
I could have run before the kids arrived for Jones’ party.
Heck, I could have run during the party – Beer Geek was here and the tweens certainly did not need me.
I could have run before Shoo’s party or anytime after his party.
But I didn’t. I did not make running a priority. Instead, I made excuses.
I’m not going to beat myself up about it. It’s one weekend out of many. But the excuses need to stop here. It’s a slippery slope between not working out very often, to waking up one day and realizing I haven’t exercised in months and have gained 15 pounds.
This week, I return to making my *health* a priority.
What will you do to make sure you take care of yourself this week?
I’m starting with wearing running clothes to the dentist so I can run afterwards.
