Yes, my workout was only 8 minutes this morning. The kids were both up and it just wasn’t working today. But I got a really quality 8 minutes in! Maybe I’ll throw on my running clothes when I take the kids to the park later and sprint around the playground.
I can’t believe its only day 18. 100 days is a long time! Seriously. I’m happy that I started the habit of exercising in the morning. And I’m enjoying writing my thoughts in a blog. What I’ve lost interest in is consistently writing about exercise in the blog. I wish my blog was more about random thoughts and passing frustrations, rather than pigeonholed into a workout blog. Which is probably why I keep getting off the subject?
This got me thinking about being consistent. I would REALLY love to be consistent. Sadly though, I’m inconsistent to the core. In fact, the only things that are consistent from day to day are 1) I drink tea every morning of my life and 2) I am inconsistent every day of my life. Well I guess you could say I have consistently had the same husband and kids too, but I haven’t treated them consistently so that doesn’t really count here, does it? I KNOW I would be more content with more consistency in my life. And I KNOW my kids would do better if I could be more consistent. But I just can’t seem to pull it together from day to day. There are too many distractions and outside variables (whining kids, last minute invitations, etc). I have worked hard to make schedules and routines (lots) and they look really impressive! I post the schedule at night, filled with intention and hope for an organized and consistent household and then it becomes a part of the wall, unlooked at for weeks until I take it down because it looks shabby. So the question is, how do I become more consistent in my life?
As I lay in bed last night, I started listing in my head all the ways I’m inconsistent. Not a good idea when you are trying to sleep. Here’s what I came up with. The list could truthfully go on and on. I stopped it here for the sake of boredom (on your part and mine).

My Workout: Tae Bo Turbo Charged 8 Minute Workout

1. It was only 8 minutes, which is about all I could muster with the kids in my space
2. I love tae bo, especially the boxing moves
3. Fast paced and charged
What I didn’t like:
1. Umm, tight spandex and leg warmers, again.
