Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

#TuesdayTidbit - Doing What You Need To Do

Today's #TuesdayTidbit is about how sometimes doing what you don't want to do is exactly what you need to do.

For example:
You could do cardio all day long but hate doing strength training.

You prefer speed work over long slow runs so you stick with speed work but lack endurance. Or you prefer long slow runs and skip speed work.

You've never uttered Namaste, but you can bench press your weight - you just aren't flexible enough to touch your toes.

I think you get my point.

I know with me personally, I am a cardio girl. I have a very difficult time sticking to a strength training routine (or certain exercises). Today, as I was doing part of the #LJFitChallenge, I didn't mind the lunges or the squats. I'm happy to report that  pushups are getting easier, but the walkout planks, the burpees, anything core intense makes me truly dread the workout.

I hate doing them. I'll even put off workouts because of the parts that I don't enjoy. (light bulb moment).

It's my weak core that caused my injury or at least contributed to the problem. I tend to do the things that I'm better at over doing the exercises where I need lots of improvement.

So the take-away from today's #TuesdayTidbit is that sometimes doing what we don't want to do, where we need the most improvement, is exactly what we need to do.

If you lack core strength, add in core workouts to your routine.

If you need to increase speed, add some speed work / faster paced runs into your workouts.

Need improvement in flexibility? Add in some yoga.

The exercises (or nutrition or really any area in life) where we might need the most help, but put off doing those things because they aren't what we want to do, might just be exactly what we need to do to see changes and get results.

  1. Right now I lack endurance. Blame the crapola weather, but I struggle to stay outside for more than an hour or so. I hate swimming, but I do enjoy how easy it is on the joints, maybe that's what I need.
