Up & At 'Em!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Well I had a little help from nature which lulled me out of bed to the bathroom @ 4:30 this morning. I had been stewing over how I was going to work in a workout today as I knew once my day got going there was little chance for a workout till late...say 8 pm or so. AND I knew the odds were against me fitting in BOTH my cardio and ST at such a late hour.

So...mulled it over, considered going to the fitness center, but REALLY didn't want to go so early...went back to bed.

Tossed, turned, couldn't sleep if my LIFE depended on it...!

That's it...just gotta get 'er done! Up @ 5 and take care of morning stuff (pellet stove, feeding cats, etc.) to Riverwalk AC by 6, nailed an hour of cardio and 1/2 hour of ST.

Done and ready for my busy day ahead! Whew! Feeling MUCH better! :-)


PS...Had a "DOH!" moment this morning while working out. Saw some folks I thought might be interested in SparkPeople and spoke with them about it. The "DOH!" thought was: WHY HAVEN'T I PUT SOME SPARKPEOPLE FLYERS DOWN HERE AT RIVERWALK AC?!?! #1 on my "to do" list! :-)

    This is the difference between keeping the weight off and NOT. You are living proof that there is ALWAYS time for what is really important to us. WTG!

    Great job Don.
I got in 30 miles this week on the bike. Very windy though on Saturday. Wind was faster than me. I know about the pellet stove. I have one also. My three kids jockey around for position in front of the blower in the morning. Love your enthusiasm. The people at your work must love such a positive influence.

    Nice job, Don. SOMETHING must have wanted you go get up and go and get 'er done!!
Hope you enjoyed the rest of your day with one less thing to stress over-and the Doh moment revelation. Get to bed early so you can do it again tomorrow. :)

    "Tossed, turned, couldn't sleep if my LIFE depended on it...!" Oh man I hate when I get like that!

Are there SP flyers? I didn't know that.

    Why is it we're so good at talking ourselves out of workouts when we almost never regret them?

Great job!

    Don, there is a health and wellness fair that my radio station is putting on this Saturday at the Oakdale Mall - thought you might be interested in going!

It never pays to go back to bed when you wake up earyl. It just ment that you had a busy day & the body said you really have time to get that cardio & strength done before work.

emoticon emoticon emoticon and you did it.
