How’s It Going So Far?

So far, so good. Yesterday went pretty well. Today’s been good. I haven’t worked out yet, though.

I probably won’t do a full workout tonight. I haven’t been regularly physically active in many months, so I figure I’ll start out small and gain momentum quickly. But we’ll see how I feel. If I feel like I need to stay on the bike for the extra 10 or 20 minutes, I will.

There’s a definite difference in my appearance. It’s obvious I’ve gained weight over the last several months. But I’m trying not to focus too heavily on that. There’s nothing I can do in the short term about it. It is what it is. Instead, I’m going to try to devote my attention to establishing healthier habits and getting them to stick.

My biggest concern is what happens when the novelty wears off, or when the sense of urgency dies down after some initial successes. On the other hand, I had a very long winning streak last year, from May through December, so maybe it won’t be an issue.

I’m already dressed in my workout clothes. I think that might help me commit to it. I had planned on 7:00, but another problematic time for me is right now. So I might be a bit flexible, depending on what my needs are from day to day. Like, if I think there’s a chance I could raid the fridge before dinner, I’ll get on the bike at that time. As I’m not internally hungry right now, I’m not that worried about losing control at the moment. I’m happy just to sit here and write for you for a while. Or read. Or close my eyes and relax. I do feel tired today.

Aislyn is 5 today. That means we can finally get her vaccinated. Thank God. It’s been a long two plus years.
