When one first decides to get back on the health track, everything seems so positive and one feels so optimistic about being able to do it. The excitement is palpable, you make a plan and you intend to follow it to the dot. Yet as time goes by, other things crop up, other priorities get in the way. I am no exception to this, shall we say, phenomenon.
I suppose it is part of life. At a certain point, you just seem unable to sort through the muddle of daily life. When I first visited my trainer weeks ago, I was brimming with enthusiasm. We decided on settling for at least twice a week of workout sessions. Now, barely a month later, I am struggling to balance all the things I need to do. My workload is such that I have to be up early and go back home late at night. I planned on working out before going to work but more often than not, I end up on my desk instead of the gym. So far, the most I�ve worked out is once a week.
When I think about it, I can see that it boils down to two things � how I manage my time and my level of commitment. Yet as of now, I have no clear cut solution in front of me. I still want to continue and achieve my health goals. Yet it seems as if I cannot manage to do everything that I want to. Got any ideas for me?
