Missed It, Too Bad! Move On!

I wake up early 3 times a week and run at the gym with an amazing app that helps me run. I hate running. Today, I missed it. I haven't missed in almost 5 months.

I woke up on time, but didn't get to bed until after midnight (I know, not so late for some of you). I woke up with my alarm, but then fell back asleep. Honestly, I don't even remember hearing the alarm. I usually do. When I finally got up, I thought it was only an hour past wake up time. It was two!


I then sat in bed and scrolled through social media, which is getting less and less interesting. But I have to be active! I finally got up and made coffee and had to write the newsletter for the my day job. Well, turns out that wasn't due until next week...But I finished it any way and now I don't have to worry about it!


By the time I'm done with this blog, I won't have time to hit the gym before I have to go canvasing for my day job in town. I do get to walk for it, so I will get some exercise. But I'm just going to hit the gym tomorrow and then Friday. Two days in a row, but I need to.


What I'm trying to say is: it's ok if you miss a day so long as you make it up. And you have to make the time to make it up. It won't appear and you won't find it. You have to make it. And that's ok. It's ok if your schedule gets hinky or wonked out of whack. Don't freak out (or do for a bit, but don't stay there) and get back up and get what needs to be done, done! You can do it and it's ok.


I wasn't always this way. It was years of hard work and disciplining myself (and I am the least disciplined person I know). I am slow and depression makes me lack motivation. So if I can do it, you can try too!


It's ok to miss. Just make it up. :)
