I have a small confession to make. It’s a teeny tiny thing.
I could give you all kinds of excuses. I was preparing for Caroline’s first birthday party. We’ve been traveling. I’ve had chores to do. My knee hurt after doing the first week of Best Body Boot Camp. It was my birthday.
But all of these excuses don’t make up for the fact that I’m letting myself down. Plain and simple. I’m not keeping my promise to myself to make my health a priority. For me. For my family.
So I’m going to get back to basics. Go for a run. Create a plan to get myself over the finish line at the Army Ten Miler. Pick up where I left off with Best Body Boot Camp. Participate in #plankaday.
It’s hard to figure out what can fall to the wayside in order to make this happen. There are only so many hours in the day. But I know whatever doesn’t happen will be worth getting back in shape. My health is more valuable than anything else—I plan to be around for my daughter for a very very VERY long time.
Do you have any tips to share that will help me stay motivated?
