The Couch Coma [05.22.11]
Sunday, May 22, 2011
I am listening to the rain pouring outside. The windows are open and I can feel a warm breeze throughout the house. It smells and sounds so perfect. I actually turned off one of my favorite shows [Love it or List it] just so I could listen. Who needs a TV and Junk Food when you've got this?!
Anyways, over this past week I have come to the realization that healthy habits are somewhat like pulling off a bandaid. It hurts at first but once you are done you are sure glad to have it off.
I have a confession to make. The last two weeks I have been sitting on my couch. Literally. Mindlessly eating and watching hours upon hours of TV. I felt gross, I despised myself but I did it anyway. I think my husband could see I was doing absolutely nothing and hated it. On Saturday he gave me just the push I needed to get out of my Couch Coma. He suggested we go for a walk with the dogs. I whined and bitched but eventually I obliged.
Oh. My. Lord. 90 minutes later, hot, sweaty and out of breath. I did NOT expect a walk THAT long and MAN was I ever out of shape.
Two days "Out"and I am already feeling much better. It's not perfect, but I am trying.
Does anyone else wonder why you ever stopped in the first place?
HAPPY Long Weekend to my fellow Canadians. Enjoy the time off with your families
