Sorry, I couldn’t resist the reference after yesterday’s post…
But seriously, showering is messing with my fitness this week.
Normally, I get up, throw on some running clothes, get my kids to school, and then spend the day doing errands, working, and working out. My schedule fluctuates depending on whether I have any conference calls or deadlines, but somewhere in there, 4 out of 5 weekdays, is a run or something else. A shower may or may not happen before I get the kids from school.
This week has not been a good week for that. Today is the third day in a row where I need to be at the school. Monday was the awards ceremony. Tuesday was 5th grade graduation in the morning and then a graduation party in the evening. Today is Shoo’s class picnic. Monday and Tuesday involved makeup, heels, and skirts. Thankfully, today requires tennis shoes, shorts, and my hair in a pony tail.
Guess how much I’ve exercised this week so far…
I did Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp Monday weight workout. I have an IRL BFF doing it as well, so there was no way I could skip it.
Today I’m turning things around. I WILL run after the picnic and I WILL do the Wednesday strength workout.
I need it. Even if it means showering again afterwards so that we can go out to a special dinner tonight.
Is there one thing in your life that messes with your motivation to work out?
If putting on a running bra when I wake up raises my work out chances to about 90%, showering apparently drops mine to about 5%. Sigh.
