Sloth and balance.

Thursday, October 22, 2009
I haven't run in two weeks. TWO WHOLE WEEKS. This is unacceptable.

Alright, so I was trying to be available for the occasional emotional breakdown and I was sick, but still - Not Okay.

I had dropped all but 2 pounds of the 8 I wanted to lose and those bad boys are steadily creeping back on - Not Okay.

Basically, until the end of the month I will not be taking on any additional social obligations during the week on days that I am scheduled to train. No more rearranging, no more pushing back a week, no more slacking.

Come to think of it, this seems to be an obvious example of how easily I lose balance in my life when I find myself in more stressful situations (or start dating someone). My running suffers, my blog is ignored, my apartment gets dirty, and my diet becomes atrocious. All of it - Not Okay.

2009 has been a year of growth and education about life, and I guess this is one of the lessons I desperately need to learn.

Tonight I will make myself a little dinner, run, then come back here to start busting out some content as promised.

It's time to find the balance.
