Today is my first day of the exercise portion of my health and fitness regime and it is substantially colder outside which not only signals autum but the end of the cycling season. I haphazardly started cycling this summer and while I really enjoyed it, I found it hard to have enough time to really dedicate to long rides and on average rode about 5 miles per week. Which is not impressive at all. (No shade, but shade)
I’ve always prided myself on discipline and being physically dexterous, thinking I could jump back into being as atlethic as I once was. However, I’ve come to realize in the past year of starting and stopping my exercise and nutrition routine that I am NOWHERE near where I used to be.
It matters not that I once set records and that I used to be in decent shape. I am right now, today starting from Ground zero and I’ve got a whole heck of a lot of work to do.
I’m not sure if I can do it. But I’d rather try than to spend another day inching closer to complacency.
I have to first re-learn consistency which ties into self-discipline and then I can really start challenging myself and to be honest I’m not sure if I can do it. But I’d rather try than to spend another day inching closer to complacency and you have to start somewhere. Afterall, when a child is learning to walk and falls down 50 times , they never think to themselves “Maybe this is not for me.” https://instagram.com/p/BaXSPJ_FQh1/
Here’s looking to day 2!
