Hello! It's time for my weekly fitness check-in! So without any further ado, let's get started.

So, as the title suggests, I'm in a bit of a slump. Once again I only got in one workout for the week. I tried to get up for the gym a second time later and the week and was just too tired. I know that I need to start getting to bed earlier on night I'm going to get up for the gym, but there's always some reason to stay up late. I need to fix that.

I've been doing really will with getting my steps it. This week wasn't a struggle at all, and most days I beat my goal by a lot. And while this is great, I do know that I need to step it up. Not necessarily with the number of steps, but with the effort put into them. If all my steps are just from leisurely walks, then I'm not really getting the exercise I need. I need to make sure I get the heart pumping with my daily activities.

I think I need to stop putting it off and start my run training again. I keep thinking to myself that it's not a good time 'cause my allergies have been so bad lately, but in actuality they are worse when I'm sitting around doing nothing than when I'm out and about and moving. So I am going to make my first attempt in a while at running later this afternoon. And then I'll just need to keep up the momentum.

And I think that's about all I've got to say on the matter for this week. It's a beautiful weekend and it's time to get back out there and enjoying it!
