Time to get back on track

The last few weeks have been crazy, and I haven’t always practiced what I preach about staying active when you get run down, even though that’s when you need it most. I have been a little harsh on myself about taking the easy way out on a few days when I should have pushed myself out the door and gotten my feet moving, or chosen healthier meals. But last week was last week, and this is a new week with new challenges, new goals, and the same vision. I am striving for balance, moderation, self-acceptance and consistency every day.

There were a few days where I planned to exercise but I got caught up with schoolwork or a good book and I just couldn’t pull myself away. I’ve found that the faster I can put on workout clothing and get my feet out the door earlier in the day, the more likely I am to succeed. The longer I put off exercising, the easier it is to talk my way out of a workout for one reason or another.

So this week is all about accepting last week’s challenges and disappointments and moving forward. It is time to refocus and find my inner drive again. Self-motivation is hard but if you don’t push yourself and believe in your own success you won’t get very far in anything. Time to practice a little (or maybe a lot) of self love and press on. Today is a new day, and there is no time like the present for a fresh start!

About Carol On the Run

Hello everyone! Welcome to Carol_ontherun. I am a fitness and health enthusiast striving for happiness in everyday life. I am a Graduate student at Southern New Hampshire University in the Sport Management department. I work as a Research Assistant for the department and for the School of Business Dean’s Office. I have a background in Nutrition and Wellness from the University of New Hampshire. I created this blog to cover some topics in the health industry that I find interesting, influential and potentially controversial. In a country with growing health concerns, it is important to understand that while there is a lot of great health and fitness information available, there is also a lot of misinformation. In this blog I will be covering topics related to fitness, health and wellness and how the media’s influence in our society affects how this information is distributed to consumers. Read on to find out more about social media and it’s influence, and my passion for the health and fitness industry. I promise to deliver factual information in what I hope to be an interesting and potentially humorous manner! "I enjoy running, and spend most of my time running around"
