I started the weekend with a run on Friday evening because I was looking forward to this Bento box- like plate of goodness when I was done.
The guest pastor at church on Saturday said something that in still mulling over. The sermon, entitled “Ask The Question”, discussed asking pertinent questions to be able to move forward in the right direction with confidence. It reminded me of the book Rejection Proof which pointed out how we can miss opportunities if we’re too afraid to ask the questions that could open up those doors for us.
On Sunday morning, I woke up early to run. I got dressed in my workout clothes then got distracted answering some messages and before I knew it, it was later than I had planned and thoughts of skipping the run were dancing through my head. But I was dressed already so I told myself I’d just go out for a mile. A mile plan became a plan to run to the water cooler and back and before I knew it, I was running in Central Park, finishing a 5K, complete with lots of selfies and lots of people watching in the park – some of my favorite activities.
Moral of the story: Sometimes getting dressed for the event provides the motivation you need to go do it.
- Workout everyday
- Write 2K words everyday
- Eat nutritionally dense foods at every meal
- Enjoy the camping trip
- Work on my communication skills.
