So, this whole fitness challenge just stepped up a notch. I am (tentatively) going to be on a beach later this year...in a bathing suit...in front of, you know - people.
That changes things.
Luckily, I was already on this little fitness-kick (thanks, Baking Suit), so it wasn't a total shock. I got some great advice from another friend on how to focus my energies from now leading up to the Bathing Suit Incident of 2012.
One thing I had to do is adjust my priorities. Friends, work, home - I always have something "more important" to do, before working out.
That had to change, and I've moved the workouts to the top of my priority list. I'm even - *gasp* - getting up early to go to the gym on days when I know I won't have an opportunity after work. I've worked the gym into my social schedule, too, so that I know it gets done.
Obviously, somethings gotta give. I just hope my employer(s) understand (kidding - sorta).
