Never giving up....

Sunday I hit the reset button on my workouts.  I had been so consistent, doing so well, up until the spring hit and I was spending so much time out in the gardens ... between weeding and digging ... it's a lot of work.  Have I enjoyed it?  Absolutely!  Does it replace a regular workout?  Nope! 

So 2 days in, my nutrition is good ... the only caffeine I've had is 1 latte (and I've reduced the amount of cream and sugar in my latte) and 2 green tea with a little honey, just for flavour.  The test, of course, is going back to work tomorrow.  I just have to remember to drink green tea instead of coffee ...   My workouts have been great ... in fact I don't remember hurting this much for far too long ... and I feel good.

I feel ready to hit it hard again ... to commit to making a big difference in my life.  I know I've said it before ... but I really didn't have the conviction that it took.  This summer has been crazy busy.  This weekend ... we didn't plan anything social ... we needed a break ... EVERY weekend since the end of June, we've had social commitments.  Don't get me wrong, I've loved it.  There were still people we missed seeing but I hope to see them before the year is out ... even if it's just at one of our parties.  I've already booked 3 days in November's kinda crazy.  I had planned on doing a major renovation to my gardens this weekend ... it rained off and on for most of the weekend ... so I took a rest.  We had some impromptu social stuff happen, I bought a few new pieces of clothing, we took care of some business.  All in all, it was a fabulous weekend....

So even if you have false starts ... you try ... you falter ... you try again ... you falter again ... just keep doing it .... don't ever stop ... don't ever give up on your goals and dreams ... because if you persist ... you will eventually achieve whatever it is you want out of life.
