How has everyone’s week gone? My week has been full of adjustments. Adjusting to getting up at 5:30 in the morning. Adjusting to wearing something other than sweats or pj’s all day long. Adjusting to being away from Fit Boy during the day. Adjusting to working again. Adjusting to working out at the work gym again (that’s a fantastic adjustment that I’ve been loving!)
For those not keeping track…that’s a lot of adjusting.
I’m not one to shy away from change but I can’t say that I handle it well all the time. I’m very gung-ho and enthusiastic, especially when it comes to a challenge. But this time, it’s a bit different. For reasons I’m not going to go into (because you never know who’s going to read your blog after all), this adjustment period has been very challenging and the main reason for that, is that I don’t have much support in the sense that there are things that I don’t know how to do because I am in a different area now and need to be taught. The problem being, no one is teaching me.
So why do I bring this up? Not because I want sympathy, because truthfully, I don’t. I know it will get better and I will teach myself what I need to learn. If I get in trouble for being slow at getting things done, I’m not in the wrong. And if I get fired…then I get to be home again
I bring this up because of how important support is in any area of our lives. We can’t always do everything, be everything, learn everything on our own. Not only do we need to be supportive of one another, we also need to accept help/support when it is offered. Sure, we can achieve things with no support but it takes longer and is a much less enjoyable ride.
Question: What motivates you to get going and what keeps you going?
Whenever I don’t move, I feel sluggish, out of sorts and out of focus. Just knowing how good I’ll feel after a good hard sweat is enough to get me going. I’ve never had a day that I’ve gotten up and moved that I haven’t said “I’m so glad I did that” after. So much better than saying “I wish I’d gotten up and moved”
