It's just really hard for me to be selfish enough with my time to claim my time for workouts. I don't know of anyone else in my day-to-day life here that works out regularly. In this, the most unhealthy county of the 100 in North Carolina, it is not normal to have a fitness regime. I feel like many people here see working out as kind of a luxury or a waste of time just for people who don't have enough to spend their time/money on. By going out for a run, it looks like I'm putting it as a greater priority than my job, family, house, and all the other 100 other things I've got going on.
Obviously, in reality, I function so, so, so much better in all those other aspects of my life when I get in my runs and am healthy and active. It's just a little frustrating here to feel like you have to defend that.
Anyway, I'm rambling and whining, and those are two things I try to avoid. And honestly, I'm not a great model for physical health anyway (some of those missed workouts are just due to pure laziness and my diet has been one big junkfest lately), so I really shouldn't complain. Just wondering if anyone else ever feels this way.
