I have a love/hate relationship with exercise.
I can go for months on a healthy exercise regimen that I truly like and then get easily side-swept into a different direction of unhealthy habits. Why? Because it is easier to fail.
Excuses as to why I am not exercising are easy to come up with: Work is busy, kids have sports, a dinner meeting, folks are in town, girl’s trip, freelance work or simply, it’s just cold to go outside. Each time that I put off exercising, it leads to another time I do it again…leading to another 2 weeks and then, well, I failed.
At my most unhealthy, I felt defeated. I didn’t go to the gym with a friend because it wasn’t a good time for my schedule. I didn’t walk with my friend because my running shoes are uncomfortable...and it was cold out…and...and. That is where “the gully” is on the rollercoaster. It’s the part of the amusement park where the track goes underground and out of the way. You are scared, you can’t see, and you have no idea where you are. It's unsettling and unhealthy.
Luckily I have great friends that have found a way to collectively help each other out. We share our exercises, our nutrition tips, and schedule time to work out together (thanks to Wilcox's "Share The Love" month). I am now on the part of the rollercoaster that is climbing up to the top.
I’ve found a consistent exercise schedule that I love, I am eating healthier, and
I am done making excuses.

Wilcox Wellness & Fitness' flexible schedule allows me to schedule any workout around a busy week. I love that I can go online and see what I have scheduled and take inventory of the number of workouts I need to finish the week. It makes it so easy. The training is also fun and the feeling after a hard workout is gratifying.
I’m in a good place right now. I’m setting reasonable diet and exercise goals and I’m bumping my workouts to the top of my priorities list. I truly feel like my best self when I’m exercising consistently, so I’m holding myself accountable and plugging each time into my Google calendar with the support of my employer and my family. And you know the tippy-top of the rollercoaster where you can see the sun and look down to on the whole park? That’s where I want to stay.
That downhill fall on the rollercoaster is way too scary and you don’t want to hear me scream.
