Okay . . . not really!
You see, I'm an all-or-nothing type of person. If you are one or you live with one, you know what I mean.
For an all-or-nothing person like myself, it's kind of a challenge to get back into the swing of things after a break from a typical schedule.
This is exactly why I make myself exercise EVERY SINGLE DAY with the exception of about two to three weeks off after giving birth to my little munchkins . . . because I'm pretty sure that birthing a 9 1/2 pound baby is worth three weeks off in the exercise department. And every day during that little break, I was telling myself that on such-and-such a day I would be exercising NO MATTER WHAT. I'm the type of person who after taking one day off from anything (like exercise) pretty much says to herself . . .
"Hey, I didn't do it yesterday so I that means that I should never do it again . . . EVER . . . for the rest of my entire life . . . EVER."
This is the reason why I shave my legs EVERY DAY.
Here are some examples of what could happen for a person like me:
- "Hey, I didn't eat very well today, so I guess I will just eat chocolate and cheesecake for the rest of my life."
- "Wow, I didn't get to sleep by 10:30 tonight, so I guess I should stay up until midnight forever."
- "Yikes, I didn't floss last night before bed. Well, I think I'll stop brushing too. That will save me a lot of time."
- "Uh oh, I didn't work on a craft this week, so I will NEVER turn on my sewing machine again."
I know . . . trust me . . . I know that it's completely illogical.
And I suppose that typing up these last few posts is a step in the right direction . . . a step back on the blogging track.
But what about you?
How did you keep yourself motivated? What do you do to get yourself back into a schedule of any kind after a break? I definitely need some tips . . . and maybe a little kick in the . . . I think you know where I'm going with that.
