Getting Back Into It

I ran last night, with the music loud! I needed it! It felt good. I almost cried from the force I exerted and the stress I have been feeling recently. Cathartic.

I went to the gym this afternoon, with a short stint of elliptical and weights. My new "trainer" is making me run tonight, since I promised him I would run today. Since I didn't technically run this morning, when I get home from my meeting tonight I will be on the t'mill for 2 miles. I need that kind of discipline and focus.

Hubs and I had a serious conversation last night, and I realized how over-committed I am. I realized in a way that I hadn't before, and that my days are designed (consciously or subconsciously) to keep me from focusing on the healthy changes I want to make. This must change, which is why those 2 miles have to happen tonight. I love running. I don't want exercise to be a punishment, but this seems to be penance that I deserve to pay.

Time to pack up and head to my meeting.


  1. Thanks! It was easier than I expected it to be, given that I didn't get home until after 9!
