When it is obvious goals cannot be reached, do not adjust the goals, adjust the action steps
I'm taking a step back from writing about Liam today. Tune in tomorrow, we've got stories to tell...
Today is like my new years, I'm going at it with goals. My goal for a while has been to get in shape and get back to running. Whenever I start, I get derailed. I am writing about this today because sharing it with you equal accountability. Don't let me slack on this!
Why has running been so hard for me? I don't want to leave Liam. Yes, Brian is a very capable father. I just don't want to leave him. Also I am on a medical leave from work to take care of my son. I feel guilty if my time is not all about taking care of Liam, like I am cheating my medical leave, even if it's 7pm and I wouldn't be working anyway.
Brian and my mom, among others all tell me I need to get out. In order to take care of Liam, I have to be healthy; physically, mentally, emotionally. Running does that for me.
So today when Brian got back from work I went out to run. I went 2.5 miles. Now I won't share with you how embarrassingly slow those 2 miles were, but I plan to go again tomorrow. Small goal: run 3 times/ week. I hope my exercising improves as Liam's health improves.
Liam you are my inspiration.
