Leading up to the Holidays this year (I guess it's last year now) I was probably in better shape physically then I've been in years. For several months I'd been either riding my bike or running everyday and getting up by 4:30am during the week for 1.5-2 hours of gym time before work. It can be hard to get yourself used to a routine like that, but after a few weeks or so you don't even think about getting up so early or going to run the football stadium after being on your feet for 9 hours at work. It just becomes a part of your day. Actually, most days I would look forward to it.
It seems as though I've misplaced the motivation needed to continue this routine however. Maybe somewhere between the all of the delicious meals and holiday treats that I've shared with friends and family through December, I'm not sure. I'll find it again. Soon I hope.
