Plan B

2 Jul

I survived the triple digit Arizona heat, the corporate pep-rally and the 6am fitness activities! However, I came to the realization that there is zero chance of being prepared to run this 5k on July 8. And quite frankly, I just don’t want to do it. There I said it. But the accountability factor of having this blog has weighed on me. In fact, I briefly thought about just lying and saying I did it anyway. But then I immediately felt pathetic and guilty. Although I’m new to blogging and still learning about blogger etiquette, lying about your workout routine just seems like a “no-no.”

The good news is that I’m on to Plan B: bootcamp! I started today and will continue 5 days a week for the next month. On a good day I can motivate myself and get through a 2 mile run. On a bad or even average day, forget about it. I much prefer a treadmill, weights, loud music, an instructor screaming at me and the challenge of not being out performed by the 70 year olds spending their golden years in a gym (seriously, there are at least 3 or 4 seniors in the class and they are getting after it).

I feel good about this plan. Proud of myself for getting started (always the hardest part) and for being honest about it all.

Plus, I traded my latest breakfast favorite of Trader Joe’s Aebleskivers (swedish pancakes)

for something a little healthier. Not an easy task, those little suckers are addicting and so convenient.

So Day #1 is in the books (again)!
