It takes longer than you think it will

consistency Jan 29, 2024

I was writing in my journal about how proud I am for how far I've come over the last decade, and I am reminded time and time again that everything takes longer than we think it will or should.

 

When we see other people succeeding on the internet, we hear how they got this success in 3...

I missed class today

On Wednesdays, everyone shows up to class. No, like everyone. Meaning it's really hard to get a spot. 

 

By the time I signed up for today's class, I was 3rd on the waitlist.

 

I waited all week, and I never moved off the waitlist.

 

So this morning when I woke up to head to...

Walking at a running class

consistency Jan 16, 2024

Some days I just walk at my running class. I wake up at 5:25 am and drive all the way there to walk just to keep the habit going.

In the past, I've told myself it's okay, I don't have to go to the class to walk, I can just walk at home and only go to run...

But then what happens is I end up not...

Rest day

consistency Jan 06, 2024

I am forcing myself to take a rest day today meaning no lifting and no running.

 

I can walk or bike but nothing that is going to be too much.

 

Funny that I'm now a person who has to schedule in rest days whereas for the past decade, I've been someone who struggled to exericse...

Showing up but doing something different

I went to my running class this morning, and I just walked the entire class.

 

I was chatting with Paul about how I needed to figure something out. I know I need rest days, but I am someone who struggles with task initiation. If I let myself pick a few days a week to not go to class, it's...

Running in 2024

consistency Jan 02, 2024

Just finished my first running class in 2024. I am excited to start the year without goals pressuring me. I am excited to start the year with a sustainable system.

 

In the past, I've tried to create goals thinking they would drive me to take action. And they would... for a few weeks. But...

A wonderful day to go for a run

consistency Dec 24, 2023

I just finished the best running class ever. It was tough. It was 75 minutes. I was sweaty. I kept checking the clock. I was ready for class to be over at minute 45... I thought about leaving at minute 45...

But I stayed and made it through class, and I feel great. 

We all have those...

How to Get the Best Results

Currently rereading Atomic Habits with my client and just have so many good nuggets.

 

Reading the book reminds me why I named the website Systems for Self-Care.

 

Goals give us direction, but systems bring us there.

The purpose of goals is to win the game, but the purpose of systems is...
