FITx50 \ week 16

Week 16?

What happened to weeks 14 & 15? Well, that’s what I want to know. It’s crazy how trips to south Florida and the Carolinas can easily take you off your game plan.

Seriously, I’m like a bald tire spinning in marsh grass. I had to reintroduce myself to my friends at Momentum Crossfit, my Trek Madone 6.9 won’t even look at me and ice cream and I have been joyously reunited. How?

That’s my struggle. Weeks to months of sustained discipline followed by weeks to months (oh no, please no) of excuses, alibis and hushed alarm buzzers. My long-term goal of being FITx50 is still in sight with a March 2015 birthday, but I’d hoped for a sustained approach instead of a mad dash.

There, I said it – HOPED. That’s the issue. The term should be PLANNED for a sustained approach. As a long-time SWAT commander I understood the value of “Fail to plan / Plan to fail.” I’ve broken my own rule for survival / success. Now, I need to practice the first rule of digging holes.

When you find yourself in one, stop digging.

See you next week with a plan instead of a shovel in hand.

  1. Oh, Scott, how well I know that hole! Been there, done that, and had to start over more than once in this life. But it CAN be done, and I know you’ll do it. Go for the gold (and the goal).

  2. Think of it this way, Scott. If you really did wait until the last minute, you’d have no foundation. All those times you *did* make it to the gym gives you a foundation you can still build on. If you take a couple weeks off, it’s not that same as if you never started. Bodies need rest, too, not *just* work. I don’t go to the gym if I have a sore throat, for example. That’s rest time. If you’ve put in the work, the rest days won’t hurt you.
