Labor day weekend was packed at Clear Rock! Tread classes Saturday and our special Monday strength workout were filled. My sense is, you all want your routine back, too.
I love the stretch from September to December. There is time to build that routine before the holiday hoopla and then the New Year's craziness. About 6 years ago, I decided that I would draw a line through my Tuesday evenings, and sign up for Body Pump every week. First it was at Lifestyle, and now at Flow Studio. It is my me time. My workout. Last week, I was so stressed out from the electricians, the city of Westerville, and all that. I am not used to that kind of stress! At first, I didn't know what to do. And a place inside me kept saying, cancel Body Pump class and finish this stuff.
But I went to class anyway. It was great music, I lifted some heavy weights, pushed myself, and blew all that stress away. I am not kidding. When I left class, it was gone and I felt like a new woman. My smile was back.
I am pretty thankful that working out can do that for me. My job is to remember that, and go work out! It is so tempting in those moments to allow the overwhelm to win. But I chose me that day, and it paid off.
Don't let stress and being without a routine keep you feeling overwhelmed. Start with one day a week. Sign up in advance. Part of our job at Clear Rock is to help hold you accountable. We will do everything we can to help you get here. Once you're here, I promise that stress will melt (sweat) away, and you'll be ready to take on tomorrow as your very best self.
