Hey, wait! All's NOT lost...

Friday, March 13, 2009

Everyone knows that when you track, you realize how questionable seemingly innocent habits really are. But the other side of tracking is that it can show you when it's not over yet. And that's a reason to celebrate.

Tracking shows you how possible it is to keep on track. I went out to eat with my sister and my dad today. We went to this spectacular pizza place and got a large pizza to share. We didn't finish, but I did my best to help us try. I had four slices! They were small slices, but still! I could have just had two, or three.

The total came out to 720 calories for the escapade. Pretty bad. But I had a small breakfast. And I can have a small, nice dinner and stay within my high-end target of 1550. And the pizza did have lots of fresh veggies (along with the oil and cheese, of course). So if I'm careful today, I don't have to fall off the wagon at all. That's great to know. There's no reason either to starve myself for the rest of the day, or have a crazy dinner because all's lost for the day.

So, I'm suiting up to go to the gym. It's almost 830pm. I'm not amused.

It's 100% better to exercise in the morning. I know this. I'm on spring break. I schedule my own days. Even if I get up at 10, I can exercise before I go any further.

But I think to myself, "I have so much to do. I have to get XYZ done. I'll do that, then exercise." Excuses, excuses. It basically comes down to this. I'm just like: "Nah." But before I know it it's nighttime. When I don't exercise in the morning exercising is this huge thing. It breaks up my day. It makes me feel better, but it also makes me lose focus and can be distracting.

Consistency is almost impossible for me if I don't do exercise in the morning. When I say "Nah" to working out in the morning, I'm really saying "Nah" to consistency. So tomorrow I'm going to say hey to the elliptical or the stepper first thing. I'll try to ignore the fact that that'll be just 12 hours from now.
