Motivation is a fickle monster. Getting up at 3:10 AM to go out into the cold (it wasn't that bad this morning), drive to work and get there at least an hour before I'm scheduled to work and go instead to the gym in the small building to go and do physical movements to break a sweat. All of that contributes to that little voice in the back of your head to say, "Eh. Stay in bed, get another hour of sleep. You were up late last night. You're tired."

So. I've been very bad on my goals this last week. Today was actually the first day I got into the gym since the beginning of the year. Guess I was waiting on the other resolutionaries to give up. You know, the zero other people that go in at 4 AM.

I don't know what it was that kept holding me back. I didn't stay up exceptionally late during the last week or so. I might have talked myself out of it because of my physical coming up on Friday. Which seems kind of dumb, but in any case I got out of bed this morning, and was on my way by 3:35 to hit the gym.

It's only 8:15 (as I'm typing this portion) and I've already rolled past the half-way point of my step goal for the day. Hit the elliptical machine for 33 minutes, so I've hit my 30 active min goal as well (all of this is programmed into my fitbit).

The week is off to a good start. I'm probably going to work on updating this once a week (sort of a summary instead of play-by-play) because it's getting tougher to come up with clever titles. :)

See ya next week.
