After work today I stopped to get in a quick run before grabbing my boys from daycare. The weather was beautiful for a fall Michigan day, and I had been looking forward to the run.
Then, I pulled into a parking spot at the path, and suddenly I didn’t want to get out of my car. I just wanted to sit there. Actually, the thought crossed my mind that maybe I should just drive up the road to their school…if I left now I could make it in time before they got on the bus…
But alas, I stuck with my plan and went for a run.
This inner battle happens all the time.
Should I get up early to workout, or just go back to sleep for one more hour? Should I squeeze in that run after work, or just go get my kids? Should I hop on the treadmill when they go to bed, or fold laundry and clean the house?
Sometimes I give in and skip the workout. But, every time that I don’t, I am gaining power over that voice in my head. Each time I push past those temptations is a little victory for me. And I sure do love a good victory!
