Pushing through self-defeating inner dialogue

Well, I did it! My daughter's bus ran really late this morning so there I was standing out on the coldest day of the year so far with this crazy wind eating right through my coat and sweater listening to her complain about being late to school. By the time he finally showed up, I was just ready to go in and warm up. But I asked my neighbor if she was going to walk and she was sick so she went straight in and back to bed. So I determined to just do one lap (5 laps = 1.1 miles). I've once again set my mp3 player down in some unfathomable place so it was just me, my thoughts, and the wind. I did the 5 laps in 16 minutes!
When I did finally get inside, I had warmed up considerably. Ear muffs, coat, sweater, jeans all had to go in favor of shorts and t-shirt. After giving my kitty a little cuddle time (he does insist
), I moved on to a 45 minute workout! And then I passed out for an hour and a half or so. Hey, I didn't get 6 hours sleep last night! I was thrilled I even woke up this morning!
So in spite of all my self-talk telling me to get in out of the wind, exercise AFTER a nap, etc, etc, etc, I did it! Today I won
! Now to prepare to win tomorrow
