Or maybe it should be inconsistently consistent.
I have incredible motivation and dedication to fitness. For lots of different reasons. If I could be active in some way an hour each day, or at least 5-6 days I week, I would. With very few interruptions. Not all major sweat sessions, but strength training, yoga, pilates and all sorts of forms of exercise.
But, unfortunately no one pays me to run or exercise. It's something I have to make time for; I have to make it a priority.
I have a job. I have a husband. I have three young kids. We have a lot of family and friends and various events, celebrations and just hanging out that goes on.
There are weeks and months that I exercise 3+ times a week. That's a good week for me.
But then there are weeks (not usually months, but sometimes) that I only exercise once or twice. I struggle to get consistency back.
When kids are sick, when life is busy, when I'm just exhausted, when I'm not managing my time well, I'm very inconsistent.
But here's the trick. The key to an active life.
I always get consistent again. Until the next thing throws me a curveball. And then I'm inconsistent.
I never stay there.
I may reach my fitness goals slower than I'd like.
I know this is a season and it will pass as my children grow older. I do embrace where I'm at in life. But I look forward to having a little more time to myself one of these days.
But at least I'm consistently inconsistent. Or inconsistently consistent.
How about you? What balls do you juggle and how do you find consistency?
