I went to the gym for the first time in about 8 months last Saturday and it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I was expecting pain, soreness, aches, lower back pain, difficulty breathing and a massive headache. I mean, it’s been a long time and I didn’t want to push myself too hard but it was still a decent workout. I was even more surprised when I was not aching the following days and my lower back actually felt better while grocery shopping.
My next gym visit is either Thursday, Friday or Saturday, maybe a couple of those days and I’m excited! I’ve not been excited to go to the gym in a very long time. I wish I could bottle this feeling for when I’m not feeling it.

I start and stop a lot in life, projects, habits, exercise, health and crafts. I always seem to find myself leaving a project half done or forever a work in progress. I will start a project, work on it then get bored or side tracked by some other idea I have. I fear this will happen with this blog.
My hope is that since I know I won’t stop reading, I’ll at least have my book reviews to do if I do start to taper off. I don’t want to taper off though and I don’t want to leave projects half finished. The one good thing I can say though, I have not given up. I have not given up completely and don’t plan to quit. I just go on a hiatus with somethings.
The reason why I’m writing about this is because I’ve been thinking about my health and my productivity. I’ve not lived up to my productivity that I promised myself and I need to make a change. I also just found out that through work, I can get money each month to pay off my gym membership if I go 4 or more times a month. The question is then, why am I not taking advantage of this? My next step is to make a list of projects I want to get done this year and go to the gym at least one time this week.
Have you started something over and over again? How do you stay on task or keep yourself motivated to complete tasks?
