I have come to the realisation that I have problems trying to do more than one thing at a time.  I’m having problems trying to juggle work, the gym and having a life.  No I shouldn’t say having a life, because going to the gym has become a part of my life now.  I’m having problems with trying to juggle work, the gym and a good time with friends.

I’ve been trying to do all of them at once and something had to give and unfortunately it was pretty much the gym and for the last couple of weeks I have gotten really really slack about going to the gym.  When I first started going I was going nearly every day, then I upped it to every day, and two times a week I was going twice a day.  Now I’m lucky if I’m going 4 times a week.  Yes I have been very slack.

My reason for this?  I was busy partying.  That meant that I was way to tired to do something as mundane as going to the gym.  And now I have realised that I can’t go to bed at 2am and get up at 6am 3 nights in a row.  Okay one of the nights I was in bed by 12:30.  But I counted, and I have had 14 hours sleep over the last 3 nights and quite frankly – I’m stuffed.  (Yes Miss Mum you were right!  It caught up with me.)  I have no energy when I’m at work, (let’s be honest, I’d rather not be here anyway sleep or no sleep) and I have no energy when I go to the gym.  I kinda just mooch around in a daze, and don’t put my full effort into it.

I’m trying to be a lot more positive today (apart from the I’m so tired I want to drop right where I am thing), but there is a boxing class on today at 3:30pm, so I have made an executive decision and I’m leaving early, going to the gym, stopping off to get a nice healthy dinner, then going home to watch a movie and go to bed early, so I have lots of energy tomorrow to get up and go to the gym for Body Pump and Body Combat.  I need to kick my arse into gear and stop saying that “I’m going to do better this week” and actually DO it.  So tonight I am bypassing the pub and the clubs, there will be no drinking and dancing for me.  And I’m going to work out a schedule for myself so that I can actually try and fit everything in – work, gym and socialising.

I have just realised how much simpler life was when I was content to be fat and not worry about going to the gym and trying to juggle everything.  I also didn’t mind going out till 2am and then going into work (more often than not hungover), but now I’m starting to care.  Maybe not so much about work, but definately starting to care about stuffing up everything with the gym.

    You know what? I can TOTALLY understand where you are coming from…fitting exercise in is bloddy hard work, and some days I just think CHRIST! WHY AM I DOING THIS!? I love your new layout, it is really beautiful. You are doing really well, keep on going. I’m with you this week – need to stop talking about it and just do it!

    Oh wow, what a fantastic post! A lot of it rang true with me, the killer blow being when you said, “I have just realised how much simpler life was when I was content to be fat”. Talk about hitting the sucker on the head!

    And remember, if you ever want to join in on the Push-And-Be-Pushed challenge, you are more than welcome to 🙂

    Take care of yourself, and let us know how that kickboxing class-healthy dinner went!
