Fitness Fridays: Back in the Saddle

Now that we are in the post production phase of Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee, the pace is much slower now.  I am not trying to remember all the last-minute details that go into putting together a production.  As a result, my energy levels dipped this past week.  I went into hibernation mode, and I slept so much.  I have not exercised with as much intensity as I did the last week.  Yoga is great, but I need the variety in my workouts.  Last week I wanted to work out the nerves and keep filling my cup with exercise.

I am committing myself again to my fitness and nutrition goals again.  I stopped running as consistently.  I did not attend any classes at our fitness center at work.  I need to stop making excuses.  Exercise makes me feel better period.  I need to continue to schedule it into my life.  I relied too heavily on caffeine and chocolate.  This only gives me a temporary boost.  It will result in that inevitable crash.

Monday morning, I am starting a new exercise program, the 21 Day Fix.  I plan on still maintaining a running schedule of three days a week and my weekly yoga class along with these daily workouts.  The challenge of this program is to work out consecutively for twenty-one days straight.  My challenge is my mindset.  I know that consistency is what sustains lifestyle changes.  I am ready for this.  Wish me luck!
