The funny thing about posting workouts on social media

My sister and I were talking on the phone and she teased me. “You and your selfies or it didn’t happen! You are working out all the time!”

 
 From my perspective I see all the workouts I didn’t hit, the missed runs, the days without the workout selfies. 

I think about Sam’s plan to schedule lots of workouts, knowing she’ll miss some. I think about Tracy’s idea of scheduling only the ones she knows she’ll make. 

I’m not much for schedules or sticking with a plan for long. The plan is always so much more appealing in theory. Designing the plan is fun, sticking with it, BLAH!

I’m also trying to listen to my body.  With slippery walking commutes, taking the stairs at work and spinning more my glutes are on fire. 

It’s funny, now that so many people know when I get my workouts in I’m feeling more accountable but feeling ok with the balance I’m finding. 

Hope your workouts are going well!

  2. I like that idea of taking selfies for accountability! I am finding a loose schedule is working for me – running 5 miles a week, which for me takes at least 4 workouts since I only do a little over a mile at a time… with optional days included in my mix (Thursdays can be yoga, running, or nothing depending on what I feel my body needs). it’s been a process to find what works for me!
