What I Haven’t Been Doing Lately (But Should Be)

      6 Comments on What I Haven’t Been Doing Lately (But Should Be)

I have to admit something’s been missing lately. Scratch that a couple somethings.


I love CrossFit and while I’ve already mentioned that I’m missing being in the box on a daily basis and working on my strength and skills, I’ve been really proud of myself lately for creating some great WODs to do either in or outside of the RV. I’ve been keeping myself active and then loving every moment I get at an event to be inside a box and lifting weights.

But there’s other things that aren’t happening…

It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I went out for a run and at least a month since I did yoga.

I’m not okay with this. Yes, I’m still finding other ways to stay active but this is my meditation, this is my outlet and chance to focus back in on myself and what I need, this is my chance to recharge and think and brainstorm. I haven’t had it and I can tell.

I’m not sharing this with you all so you can tell me to put my shoes on and walk out the door.

I’m not telling you this so you tell me to roll out my mat and breathe.

This isn’t for you. It’s for me.

It’s to remind myself that I need those things, I love those things and my body craves those things. I need to stop telling myself “I’ll do it later” and instead, roll out of bed and do it NOW! Move NOW! Run NOW! Stretch NOW! Breathe NOW!

I’ll thank myself for it later. For the fact that I did it before the day got crazy and before I could make any excuses. And for the fact that I’ll feel amazing – physically AND mentally.

So…today I run. It won’t be easy. In fact, I’m sure it’ll be hard but I’m going to push through, I’m going to give it all I have and when all is said and done, I’m going to be so thankful I did it.


TOL style.

    That’s always how it is, eh? So hard to start, but so gratifying when we get it done. I do hope you got your run in! I had one planned for today too, but my stinking back got in the way. Ahh well… gotta roll with the punches.

      I did! Just over 3 miles under my belt yesterday! It was hard but it really felt so good to get it in as I know it was needed. I thought about getting another 2 in today but I have a workout this evening for the event and chose a little extra sleep as priority.

    It’s so hard for me to accept that I can’t do ALL the things ALL the time – so I know how ya feel! Things have been manic for me lately so lots of my regular loves have been less… regular. But it’s all good: when I’m ready, I know I’ll yank them back into my routine and pick up where I left off!
