I didn't feel like doing anything today. Today was ballet day for my daughter Piper, and I was feeling so crappy that I didn't even take her. My son was sick yesterday and my stomach started acting up last night. So naturally I felt at 8am that I didn't need to get out of bed to make the 1 hour trip to town to take my daughter to her dance class. So now I feel crappy that I made her miss ballet today and we spent the day in bed. I slept to a point where I felt even worse when I finally did get out of bed. I felt like I wasted most of the day. I decided to eat healthy at the very least and did a great job. Then I put on my workout clothes and dragged myself to the elliptical machine. I didn't want to do it, but I felt like if I can do it while I feel so unenthused, than surely I could do it any other time. If I could just work out enough to make myself sweat and to feel like I hadn't lost a day that I could excersize I'd have done my job. Right away I could feel my body wanting to be sluggish. My feet started hurting, the music was not upbeat enough, I've only been doing this for a few minutes?! But I kept on, I kept doing it, I started dripping sweat, my hubs put on some Metallica and that really got me more pumped. I ended up pushing out 40 minutes. When I was done I was so pleased. I thought, "no matter how crappy I feel today, those 40 minutes of cardio can't be taken back. I've done them, and now I'm healthier for it"
