What’s Next? + A Lifetime Of Fitness
|January 28, 2014||Posted by Presley under Fitness, Life, Motivation|
Today we left school two hours early because of the so-called impending snow storm. At this point, there is still no sign of the fluffy stuff. Maybe after we go to bed? I’m really hoping we get a few inches overnight because I might be dying to see Maddux’s reaction to it. I remember the first time my dog saw snow, and I’m assuming it’s about the same response.
Tonight’s dinner was pretty much fate. Snow day + Teacher Appreciation Day Discount at our local pizza place? Twist my arm, why don’t ya?
Today was a rest day, so of course I used it to think about working out. Totally kidding. Well, I was kidding until now. Now I am actually thinking of my work out habits, future goals, and all that jazz. As usual, I started typing this post with no direction but a thought randomly just popped in my head. Well, a question actually.
“So, what’s next?”
I typically go from one goal to the next. Handstands? Got ‘em. Half marathon PR? Check. Build strength? Eh, we’re working on it. But you get my point. There is always a challenge. There is always some new thing to conquer. Right now I can’t think of anything I want or need to do when it comes to fitness. Sure, I still want to master pull ups. I want to run a faster 5k. I want to be Gisele Bundchen. You know, all the normal things people hope for in life. There will always be new things to learn, new speeds to reach, new muscles to grow. Honestly, though, right now I just don’t have one thing I’m dying to focus on. I’m happy with where I am.
I’ve realized that I just want a lifetime of fitness.
If my legs keep running, if my arms keep lifting things, if my heart keeps tickin’ properly, and if I’m body keeps playin’ with Maddux… well, then I’m good to go. Yep. That’s about it. Don’t worry, though. I’m still going to grow huge biceps one day. So, write that one down ’cause it’s happening.
I’m not really good at segues, but here is a somewhat irrelevant quote that I just happen to like right now. Which is kind of ironic, considering I just told you that I don’t have any big goals right now. Hmm. Whatever.
I better go and resume staring out of the window until my yard is covered with snow. Because it will happen. OMG. There’s my big dream, y’all. So the rest of you small minds can just go take a hike, because it will snow tonight.
Question 1: What is your current fitness goal?
Question 2: Is it snowing where you live?
Question 3: What’s your big dream? Seriously.
