Maybe it’s the cooler weather, maybe it’s some weird form of seasonal nesting, maybe it’s just one too many mentions of something that struck a chord with me. But I feel like I need to get a move on. I want to get back to fitness and working out, get back on track. I feel like the life derailment is over and it’s time to head out of the station. I’m ready for new challenges, new goals, new expectations for myself. I’m starting today, because there’s no better time like now. And like everything, I’m just going to take it one day at a time and form new habits. Habits that serve me better than the ones I’ve sunk into, habits that will allow and encourage me to be more, do more, live more. I can’t make dreams happen if I don’t do my part to move towards them.
Am I the only one feeling this way?
I’ve reached out to my old walking buddies. I’ve still got my gym bag packed, now to venture back to the gym. I’ve got my bottle of water sitting next to me. I can do this.
It’s more than just fitness and health, but that’s where it really all begins. You’ve got to lay your foundation, in order to create your temple.
And I’ve started thinking about the rewards. All those things that will inspire me and motivate me. Training for a race like my friend Sherri. Hiking Heleakala. Wearing boots! Taking classes from Rachel Brice.
It’s a powerful thing.
Because it really is so short – so it’s time to make it the best it can be.
So, today is the day that my life takes a new direction.
