It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted about WILDfit. I suppose there is a reason for that. All of that stuff I wrote about getting the most out of my investment in the WILDfit program and being motivated by the changes I’m seeing and blah blah blah? Well, maybe not so much.
I’ve definitely back-slid into some old bad habits during the past two weeks. I’ve been pretty busy working on a big project in my house and as a result I’ve missed a few workouts. I did set up a complete diabetes logging system and did really well for a few day, but then slacked off on the logging too. Sigh . . . .
It isn’t that I don’t like the program. I really really do. Last week one of our assignments was to try something new, so I pulled out a Wii Zumba disk that I had tried only once before. The last time I tried it I quit after about five minutes because I didn’t know what I was doing. This time I did the whole Zumba workout. I still didn’t know what I was doing. I have never felt so uncoordinated in my entire life! But you know what? It was a lot of fun, and I’ll be doing that Zumba workout again and again and eventually I will even figure out the steps.
This week my goal is to get back to it. I will get my logbook back out and start logging everything again. I’m still busy working on the house, but I will make it a priority to take the time to do my workouts. I know my pace won’t be where I had hoped it would be by Week 5, but I need to learn to be okay with that. I need to stop letting myself quit because I’m not doing as well as I want to be.
So, here’s what I’d love to know from those of you who exercise regularly. What are your tips for making time to exercise when you feel like you are just too busy? How do you motivate yourself to workout when you feel like there are other things you need to be doing instead?
