Weekly Weigh In: See Jane Take a Break

You know how they say it takes 3 weeks to form a habit? Well, I feel like it only takes 5 minutes to break one…especially when you weren’t loving the new habit in the first place. What habit you ask? Exercising every day.  I was working hard but I realize now that it was because I had a goal. I didn’t do as well as I expected but I achieved the goal and since then, save for a couple of shining moments, I haven’t been working out. I know I’m wrong but I can’t shake it.

I talked in another post about joining a new gym opening in my area. The opening date was pushed to the end of December…right before Christmas. So, basically with family visits and travel, we’re talking next year. It’s freezing outside and I have to say, the treadmill and elliptical machine aren’t exactly calling my name.  If they are, clearly I’m not listening.

I’m disappointed in myself but I’m not quite sure how to break out of it. I do know I am tired of hearing myself whine and I KNOW you are tired of hearing me whine. So, I’m taking a break until I get focused. Robyn is back and did ask when we were going to start 10K training. I suggested the week after Thanksgiving. By then, I will have had my infusion and will (hopefully) be better prepared (mentally and physically) to start running towards another goal. 

Today's recipe is Baked Eggplant and Tomato Pasta
