I made it to the double digit days! Today was one of those days that got away. I met with my marketing guru, Kate Mayer (check out her irreverent, awesome blog at http://www.returntoworkmom.com), interviewed someone for a senior position (who I surprisingly liked enough to bring back) and finally realized it was 1:30pm and I was starving. Off to Panera for a quick bite before coming back to my weekly one-on-one with my General Sales Manager at Key Hyundai of Milford.
I knew my time was getting tight. I wanted to get to a 5:30pm class at The Fit Playground but I also needed to get in my outdoor time. The old me, the me of 2011, probably wouldn’t have done either. I would have found an excuse to stay later at work, killed the rest of the evening and then rushed home in a tizzy, complaining about how exhausting it is to come home from a stressful day at work and right into kid’s bedtime. Is it possible that I’ve already become more laid back in only 10 short days?
Today was different. I changed into my exercise clothes out work, snuck out the back door and raced to West Hartford Center. I parked a few blocks outside of the center (bonus is free parking) and walked from 5:15pm until the class started at 5:30pm.
The class kicked my butt. I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to move tomorrow. It was called a Bully Class and let’s just say that after five years with Glenn Marcella, I still didn’t know their could be that many variations on a plank, a mountain climber and a burpee.
I knew I had 15 minutes more of outdoor time to get in and I was meeting my family at Moe’s in Blue Black Square. So, I walked another 15 minutes around Blue Black. Bam, my 30 minutes was done.
Today was one of those days where I never would have walked for 30 minutes if I didn’t make this commitment. Never, ever, ever!
What was your New Year’s commitment and how’s it going? Love to hear from you!
