The honeymoon is over
Every Friday night without fail I start dreading it.
Thinking of ways to get around it or avoid it.
I’m talking about my 4:30am alarm on my Saturday morning to get me up and Trek Training at Mt Cootha.
The honeymoon lasted about 2 weeks and then the reality set in.
We all experience that honeymoon phase when we start something new and mine went something like this…
“Oh, I think I might do a Trek in New Zealand and invite some other ladies along and we’ll all lugg around 16kg each on our backs, carry and cook our own food, NOT have showers at the end of the day and do this 5 days in a row. That sounds like fun!”
I’m deep in trek training at the moment with 5 weeks to go.
Saturday mornings are the day we do a group hike at Mt Cootha and it’s the toughest session of the week, with our backpacks getting heavier and heavier every week to get our bodies and minds conditioned for what’s about to unfold.
It’s hot, it’s hard and it’s gruelling.
It’s mentally draining after a big week of business, babies and not seeing my Husband that much.
I know it’s what I signed up for.
The honeymoon has well and truly left the harbour.
I’m totally motivating you right now aren’t I? (note sarcasm)
Here’s the thing.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, how fit, unfit or how strong or weak you are.
The honeymoon always ends.
Learn to accept that.
After the honeymoon there’s always “work,” just like night follows day.
It always has and always will.
If you are waking up, finishing work or getting to the weekend and aren’t feeling motivated – welcome to the club.
My name is Jodie, nice to meet you
