AbsoluteFIT isn’t a diet or a program, but a lifestyle change — that’s easy to say, but hard to really understand until you’re doing it. It’s been clarified for me recently in an unexpected way: namely, a lot of schedule upheaval that’s going on right now and will continue for awhile.
See, I’ve gotten used to planning all my workouts for the week on Sunday night. I have a note on my iPhone calendar to prompt me; I look at all the other things coming up (volunteering at my daughter’s school, a friend’s birthday lunch, a conference call with a freelance client) and book my sessions accordingly. But since the guys with power tools showed up a couple of weeks ago (see the photo below), I never know from one day to the next what times I’ll be able to get to AVAC®. The stuff they’re doing to the house is awesome, but it seriously, sincerely drives me nuts to not be able to plan my workouts sooner than the night before or morning of!
This is one of the ways I know AbsoluteFIT is working: It’s become an ingrained habit — it’s the way I am, not this big separate thing I have to work up the will to do. And when the construction is over, it’ll be back to the old (new) routine!
