Over Coming Obstacles
Monday, September 10, 2012
Over the weekend my husband found out that his grandmother on his dad's side of the family passed away. He spent most of yesterday trying to figure out a way to get back up home, which is about a 3 hour drive, and not leave me and the kids without a car. Oh the joy of only having one vehicle. We finally decided for him to just take the car since he will only be gone over night at the most. And I'm sure that if anything comes up here at home while he is gone that there is someone I can lean on to help me out. It's one of the perks of being apart of the military community.
Here comes the obstacle: my workout. I have a few options to choose from. One being skipping my workout tomorrow and pick back up tomorrow. Two being workout at home (which I can't stand to do, since going to the gym is the only time I leave the house on most days). Three, walking to the gym. I don't mind walking to the gym since it's only about 1.25 miles from my house and I can make it in about 20 or so minutes. The obstacle coming from that is trying to cross the road from which my housing is to the main base. It's a major road that stays busy all day during the week. I
I think I'm going to give it a shot to walk to the gym tomorrow. I'm busting my hump trying to get out of the 180's and I'm so close (at least I think I am since I'm a bit bloated right now from TOM), I don't want anything to stop me.
Another a good note: I made a goal of going for a run of 8 miles total. I planned it out to do 5 miles outside and the last 3 on the treadmill. After I finished the first 3, my mind wanted to shut down and that was an obstacle that I overcame. Go ME!!
So here's to a great Tuesday!!
