The Siren Song Of My Inner Fat Girl...
Monday, May 23, 2011
So my inner fat girl came to pay me a visit today....and I told her she had to GO, and not to come back...EVER!!!
Since I started on this journey I have been on a pretty regular routine. Today a few wenches got thrown into the agenda. (I'm not gonna get into it, because its now in the past, and I would just like it to stay there, plus this is a positive story) I was struggling with staying on track today. Just wasn't feeling it.
Then next thing I know here comes my inner fat girl. I hadn't seen her in awhile, so I was surprised. Where the hell did she come from? I thought I had told her she wasn't welcome around me anymore? She was telling me that it was o.k. to not work out today, that I have been working hard, and I deserved to sit on my a$$. She was feeding me every excuse in the book why it was ok for me to be lazy. She almost talked me into it too! I was in a trance...I was getting lured into the darkside by the siren song of my inner fat girl!! She almost had me too!
I finally snapped out of it, and pulled it together. I told that fat girl, that there was a new sheriff in town! I told her that this sheriff was healthy, and active, and was going to kick her butt if she ever had the nerve to come around me whining again! I think she got the point. The new healthier me reminded myself that I would regret it if I didn't get my act together! Mind over matter! I pulled it together and went to the gym! 2 hours later than I usually do! I ran another 5k on the treadmill, and did strength training! I shaved 30 sec off of my run, and I was sweating like a dude! It was like a badge of honor! I was like WHAT!?! to that fat girl. Look at me now! You are not the boss of me. Suck it!
So needless to say I am proud of myself! I made the most of my day anyway! I didn't curl up on the couch with a canister of pringles, and blow it. I loved myself enough to have mind over matter! If I had given in I would have been so disappointed in me, and I have learned now that that's not acceptable anymore! I've also committed to a 100 day streak of exercise. Today was day 30. I almost blew it, and I'm so glad I didn't...glad enough to blog about it! Woot woot! Thanks for reading!
