#reverb10 Day 20 – Beyond Avoidance

What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing?  (Bonus: Will you do it?) – Jake Nickell

I should’ve gotten in better shape this year.  I made a few, feeble attempts this year.  I’m sure many of us have attempted this goal, but shirked our responsibilities.  My excuses are busy, lazy, and it was low on my financial priority list.  Like I mentioned before, I’ve yet to find something economical that keeps me motivated.  Maybe I just need to push through the boredom and make something a routine. 

As for will I do it?  Yes, I will.  I have to, I must.  I have limited endurance, no upper body strength, and a lower half that is increasingly preventing me from wearing what I’d like.  I have to get in shape if I’m going to pass a PFT, bottom line.  That’s going to be my goal, especially since there’s a deadline associated with it.  

I texted my brother tonight and asked if he was bringing PTs with him on vacation.  Yes, he is bringing workout clothes, so yes, my workout shorts and sneakers went into my bag.  Peer pressure.  My dad is a marathon runner, so I’m sure he’ll have his shoes packed to do some runs.  I just need to get active, period.  Let’s do this, P Family!

I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
