" Then I was running!"
"Then I was running!"
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know!!! I have way too many balls up in the air at the moment and am feeling frazzled. But I went to the gym anyway, thinking that I could get in a good run and it would clear my mind and soothe my nerves. I decided to run on the track since lately the treadmill neither excites me nor motivates me and in fact, some days bores me. I was well on my way. Music blaring, legs pumping, mind clearing, nerves soothing. I was totally rocking out to Joan Jett and loving each second more than the last and then....closing time. Bah! I had an evening class and so I had to go afterwards which is pretty close to closing time. I work all day so I can't go during the day. I have to find a better time to go work out. How do people do it?!! I have two kids and a husband to take care of. I have class two nights a week. I work 40+ a week at my real job and I just opened up a side business on the weekends. ACK!
I must work out some sytems for workouts. Maybe we can add 3 hours on to each day. Or have four day work weeks and get one day off to go to the gym. It's not as farfetched as it seems. I know that there are actually companies that pay their employees to be healthy. I just don't know where to find them. Vent, vent, vent!!! Big Sigh! I'll just have to figure it out.
I'm happily married to the world's greatest guy, Josh. I have two wonderful, beautiful human kids, Tragon & Isabel. I also have an amazing furry kid, Omar. I started this running journey in memory of my friend's little boy, Jamison, and I've just kept on going.
