Do you ever find that life has gotten in the way of your goals/dreams/fun? Maybe the question to ask is has all the other “stuff” in life, such as work, other commitments, and day to day must be done activities (mowing the lawn, doing laundry, finishing the plans for remodeling the house), interfere with the life you envision living? I guess what I’m trying to say is life gets in the way of life. So many things have come about in the last couple of months that my training has been sub-par, weak, lacking of time and consistency. There is no one to blame but myself for this set back in my training. I have let life get in the way and have not taken the time or built in the time to correct this. This goes for my blogging as well. Other things have taken priority and I haven’t carved out the time to do what I truly enjoy (blogging, running, biking, swimming). I could blame many of this on the weather and the fact that our Wisconsin spring was filled with more rain, cloudy days, and cold weather than I ever remember experiencing, but that would merely be an excuse to make me feel better. Simply put, all the other stuff has taken over and I need to learn how to tame it. I need to learn how to schedule my time more efficiently and to get the workouts in that I need to no matter what. I’m just a happier person when I exercise regularly.
How about you? Do you ever find that everything else has taken over your life, and how do you handle it? I’d love to hear your experiences and your suggestions.
