I think it's actually just habit now. I've always been active from when I was a kid, so living an active lifestyle is second-nature to me. Kicking it up a notch from what I'm used to (which is what exercise is) requires setting asid the time to do so, except when I'm commuting via bike. I'm still not a great biker by any means so I still get a great workout, especially since the way home is all uphill!
As I was out for my run this morning, I was thinking about how I was going to update you all today. I'm really out of wisdom. I think I've hit most of the bumps along the way which stand in my way from working out, but I really feel like since I've already set my mind on doing something each day, my only task is figuring out what I feel like doing and how much time I have - even if I can only find 20 minutes out of a 24-hour period (and come on, when it's put like that, who doesn't have 20 minutes?!), I've proven to myself that I can, indeed, find something to do. I've had a few 11-hour days as well in the mix and have come home exhausted...and still figured something out. THAT is the best time for some yoga. Stretching out the tension of a hard day feels awesome.
I've done my fix-my-running-gait exercises daily for 4 days now and, thanks to dead bugs, my abs are constantly jello (though no longer constantly sore which is nice... HA HA... yep, just feel like jello) and I'm noticing my bum actually is firing when I'm running. Fine, it works and I'll keep doing these.
I challenge myself... a lot.
