If Tomorrow Never Comes

If tomorrow never comes, I'll be happy:

  • That I can deadlift more than my husband weighs
  • That that same husband and I have been married for 12 years this week and we celebrated by winning a giant banana with a mustache at Dave & Buster's

  • That I've given homes to shelter dogs that, while not always perfect, still always made me smile
  • That I bit the bullet and signed up for swim classes and can now swim more than I could when I signed up in January
  • That I moved to Chicago and made myself get out there and experience new things
  • That I can ride my bike for over 4o miles, even if it's raining

But tomorrow will (hopefully) come and I'm excited for even the mundane things. Such as:

  • Working with my new employee to create training for our company's staff
  • Going to a Tabata class at the gym
  • Seeing a doctor to get a recommendation for a really tight muscle in my neck and shoulder
  • Packing my bags to spend a weekend celebrating my mom's upcoming retirement
  • Taking my puppy to the dog park

My life is pretty good right now. Today I was stressed out that I didn't have time to fit in a workout. But just by writing this post I'm remembering that life is about so much more than that. It's about being silly with your husband, spending time with your furry family members, and experiencing new things, whatever they may be.

And, you know, triathlon training. Because I suppose I should really do some kind of "brick" workout before my first triathlon on June 14th. Actually, I'm not going to worry about that. I'm going to take it one day at a time. Starting with tomorrow.

Not figuratively, literally write about anything that you hope, fear, believe, expect -- anything -- that you may experience tomorrow.”

    I'm a 30-something who decided to get off the elliptical and expand my fitness horizons. Since moving to Chicago in 2008 I've run marathons and biked miles. I've done group fitness classes and lifted weights on my own. And now I want to share my fitness finds with you!
