And just like that…

It’s amazing how quickly I can get out of routine.  Is anyone else like that?

I didn’t exercise Saturday because I wanted a rest day, and then my rest day rolled over into Sunday too… and maybe Monday as well.

How does that happen to me every time?  I take a day off, and I end up taking much more than I should.  I’m annoyed.

So this morning I knew I wasn’t going to be able to workout until after dinner, and I hate waiting until the end of the day to exercise.  So I exercised before work at 5:15am… something I never do.

I should really start working out early in the morning more often, but I know myself well enough to know that I won’t keep up with that!

What I have decided to do, however, is to try to be active every day.  I don’t think rest days are for me because I don’t know how to take only one day off.  So on days where I should have a “rest”, I think I should still do 15 minutes of cardio or something, just so I don’t get out of routine.

Anyone else have trouble with rest days or just sticking to routines in general?  What works for you?  What doesn’t work for you?  I’d love some suggestions on how to form a habit and make it stick!
