Day 3 - the challenge of cake

Monday, November 21, 2011

It's weird because previously the weekends were hard for me and weekdays really had a set routine that was easier to manage, but today I am finding it hard to get my exercise in. I was at work all day and was too cold to go for a walk at lunch (chalk that up to my too tight winter coat!) - plus I was wearing a skirt. Now I am home from work, have cooked dinner, overseen homework and have put the kids to bed. I am in my workout clothes, but I don't want to get on the treadmill. I just don't want to do it. WAH!! I guess I will - sorry this really is just me thinking outloud and trying to convince myself.

There were some good things about today though:
- I resisted the cake that my friend Dave brought in to work. And this is big - this was no ordinary cake - it was like a 5 layer, super chocolate, fudge cake - I mean, is there anything better?? I really hope that all that cake is done when I get there tomorrow.

- I am back in the water habit. Over the weekend, I had to keep reminding myself, but today at my desk I kept my cup full and drank, drank, drank.

- I have tracked all my food and I am in a good range for all of it.

- really enjoying the sparkpeople app for iphone - I find it really easy to track and I like to see the reports on my calorie differential - keeps me going when I am not at home.

So, one step at a time - guess that next step takes me downstairs to the treadmill.

    Turning down that cake is HUGE! (at least it would be for me!) and getting out for your
    walk is also a Biggie! Good for you! Keep it WILL Do this!

    You did great.
    Next time you find yourself in that situation, don't ask yourself to work-out...just ask yourself to move for 10 mins...then after 10 mins, if you feel like doing more, you will, if not, then at least you got 10 mins in...that has helped me on occasion...
    Now - I need to track my food - today was not as good...but I am not sure...until I track.

    update: got myself outside for a 40 minute power walk when DH came home. I can feel my muscles jumping now. Feel good... Good night.
