Is it Time for a Change? Are you Listening to You?

on May 8, 2014

I had to ask myself this tough question a few months ago.  I had run myself into a rut (literally) and it was time for some change.  I didn’t give up or give in I looked at myself and decided that it was time for a new direction.  Now my fitness is more about balance.  I run, I lift, I workout but most importantly I am happy 🙂   Does this sound like you?

As I have mentioned in previous posts this year I felt a lot of pressure to keep doing long distance running but each run felt like a chore to me.  I wasn’t enjoying the process anymore.  My race schedule just never panned out and I was getting frustrated.  All the signs were pointing in the wrong direction,  I think God was trying to tell me something….I just wasn’t listening.  I tend to be a bit stubborn like that. 😉

Life is about balance and priorities.  I needed to get my priorities straight in all aspects of my life.  God, Family and working out.  Now I am feeling re-energized and more fulfilled.  Is everything perfect?  Of course not. But now I am listening.  Are you listening to what God is trying to tell you?

    I totally understand! I’ve been struggling to get fitness accomplished these days, and have really had to evaluate my time.
