This week has not gone at all like I planned. Or wanted. Or remotely hoped.
I stuck with my goals from the previous week. Still inside calorie limits, still to bed before midnight. My new goals? No. *sighs* It was just not meant to be this week. Every time I thought about getting up and going to work out, or even opening a sitting workout video on SP, I just didn't. My motivation was lower than zero. *headdesk*
However, seeing that my plan wasn't working out, my wife decided that she would give me a hand. She knows I have a very hard time working out unless I can listen to my own music and be in my own world, and I haven't had a working mp3 player since I moved here. I mean, I seriously get into things when I have one- I clean, I do laundry, I work out, I do all sorts of stuff I don't really think about doing regularly, all because I have this great beat going in my ears. So she went and bought me a brand new mp3 player from Newegg. ^_^
I was sooooo excited! I can fit all my workout songs on it, and (ridiculous as it may sound), it gives me that new, excited inspiration to get into workouts again! So I think I'm bumping my exercise goals to next week, when the player arrives.
I still feel the washes of guilt for not doing what I promised myself I would...but I just can't let myself fall too far into that, or I'll never pick myself back up and get at it again. I planned it, I set my goal, it didn't happen, and now I move on and try it again.
Beyond that, watched the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics this evening! I have to say, not as impressive as some that I've seen...but still, alot of things made me laugh. Like the Queen parachuting in with James Bond. And Rowan Atkinson playing in the orchestra during Chariots of Fire. xD That was my favorite.
So now I'm off to bed, and tomorrow is a new day!
