And my sneakers are placed by the door with care, with the knowledge that 6:00 AM will soon be here. Pretty soon, I will be nestled all snug in my bed, where visions of squats, sprints and push ups will dance in ( and maybe torment) my head.
It is almost here! I am so honored and excited to be the Free FitWit Grand Prize winner for 2012. The prize is six months of free fitness training with FitWit. I have long been impressed by the work and mission of FitWit. I cannot imagine a better partner in my quest to get fit.
But I am also quite nervous, as it starts tomorrow. I am hitting the starting line of something brand new for me.
This is more than my nebulous new year’s resolution where I promise to get fit in the new year. This is serious business that demands my commitment and hard work. This means being up at 5:30 AM each morning, when I would love to hit the snooze button. This means pushing myself harder than I have before. This means lots of sweat and sore muscles. But more than anything, as a wonderful teacher reminded me this week, it means showing up. I can’t reach the finish line, if I don’t even show up for the race.
Please join me as I document this journey of showing up. It may not be pretty or graceful or fast, but I pledge to show up. And I pledge to let you know how my first day goes tomorrow. Cross your fingers and say a prayer for me.
And I’m off…
