Seven is the Magic Number

Last year, I reluctantly kept track of my workout log. I found myself filling in some of the blanks at the end of ’09 like it was the week before taxes. I pieced things together by asking for copies of my workout log at the gym and scanning my Garmin data. Sadly, most of my swim workouts never got recorded. I know I did a bunch of them with a pull buoy at the local school’s pool.

Enter the New Year’s Resolution: be more consistent. That applies to everything from filling out my log on Fitness Journal.com to cleaning out the fridge. And with this resolution comes another (which I’ve been working on for a few months), don’t fret, worry or feel guilty about all the stuff that didn’t get done. I’m trying to focus more on the doing and less on the angst of what I’m not getting done. I know I may slip from time to time on this one, but I’ll keep plugging away at it.

I’m happy to report that 2010 is off to a great start. In the first 10 days of the year, I’ve worked out on 7 days doing 7 different activities. And this afternoon, I think I rinsed out 7 old condiment jars and put them in the recycling bin. Seven (aka 734, the cat) will be so proud. Actually, he won’t care as long as I hide 7 treats around the house to keep him occupied.
