if I were me
Life seems to be one long string of attempts to get on track. I suppose there have been periods where I have stayed on track, but right now those feel distant and not frequent. The times I've been off track? So legion.

In other words, I went back to the gym this morning, with the intent that I should not stop going at any point unless it is a reason of impossibility and not merely inconvenience. (I now have to think through: is it impossible or inconvenient to figure out how to exercise before leaving for WorldCon on Friday? I do have to BE somewhere, after all, by a certain time, and it's more on the impossible side.)

I had been doing *some* exercise--a power walk here when running failed me, a stint in the garden there (and there, and there), painting the laundry room, cleaning the house--and I managed to bruise the crap out of my foot while standing on a ladder with no shoes while painting, so hey, adults, don't DO that (kids, I guess, can, 'cuz I used to... 25 years ago...).

But I was exercising half-assedly, and eating well half-assedly, since I got back from Wyoming, and that just can't keep flying. So. Saddle, I am in you.

The exciting news is, I timed my gym visit perfectly and had 10 minutes to soften my feet up in the whirlpool. Bruise aside, my feet have been tired for weeks, and a little hot bubble action worked wonders.

I just had that same thought today, about constantly trying to get back on track. I wonder what it feels like to just BE on track. That must be either the awesomest thing ever, or direly boring.

I sympathise....there are just times when everything seems to fall by the wayside. Good on you for getting back on the horse ;o)

I -will- be good in September. I will!

I think that's the key--always getting back on track, with whatever it is. It's sort of like large-scale constructive procrastination.

I've been slacking on exercise the past couple weeks, since I decided not to do a triathlon this fall, was busy at work, getting ready for and at a con, had house guests, have been doing more house cleaning... Technically I'm skipping tennis right this minute.

Did you mean figuring out how to exercise before WorldCon or exercising at WorldCon? They have a "stroll with the stars" every morning that, while it isn't power walking, is at least moving.
