No Excuses, No Regrets

I just went looking in my archives for something and made a huge discovery. I've had this blog for 5 years!!! 5 years!!!! Wow! So much has changed in the last five years and yet so much remains the same. I'm still struggling with my weight and trying to make exercise a concrete routine in my life. I think it's time to be done with that. Not that I'm quitting, not at all. But it's time to make the transition from sporadic exerciser to regular exerciser. I've done it in other areas of my life so there is no reason why I can't do it here too. One of the things that I really have to work on is the excuses. Somehow these have become a regular part of my life. They have to stop. Also, the guilt. I have to lose the guilt. One big area of guilt can be the dogs. If I stop to run after work it may be too dark to walk the dogs when I get home. I have to drop that guilt. First off, where we take them is enclosed so walking them in the dark shouldn't pose a real risk. Secondly, they will survive without a walk one night. The guy that was fostering them before we got them didn't come home some nights. Hello!!! Missing a walk won't kill them. So, let's recap: lose the excuses, lose the guilt. Got it.

I was cruising blogs this morning and came across some really interesting stuff. One blogger was saying good-bye, another is losing weight at a rapid rate, two others got married......Crazy stuff out there.

Now I have to go work out, it's a strength day, and write my workouts for the week in my planner. One thing I do know for sure is that if I have to decide what to do it won't get done. So I'm planning the week now.
