Well, I blew it again today. I succumbed to my sugar addiction and ate four Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. The sugar crash led me straight to bed, wasting one of my precious few nights home alone. I woke up around 8:00 p.m. I would have preferred to stay in bed, resting my tired self all night long. But I imagined the things I want to do (participate in the Trick or Treat Trot Virtual 10K for which I signed up, conquer the Fight for Air Climb challenge in March, clean this disaster of an apartment), and talked myself into getting up.
According to the nutrition and fitness trackers, I had a 1000 calorie dinner and burned off 83 calories in my 2-mile video. The important thing is though, at least to me, that the exercise improved my blood sugar regulation and reset my mind. I may not work off all those cookies tonight, but as my mantra reminds me, "Obstacles (sometimes in the form of cookies) will come, but I WILL OVERCOME THEM!"
