I know I won't be able to knock it out of the park today. ANYTHING is better than I've been doing for the past week.
I'm only competing with who I was yesterday. Yesterday I ate well, drank lots of water, and slept most of the day. I got ZERO minutes of fitness on my bodymedia. That's CRAZY! But true. I didn't move. It won't take much to do better than that today. And that's all I have to do - better than yesterday.
Right now, I'm at the Patience. I have had to be patient with myself. I needed some time off. Self care is legitimate. Don't get mad about it. It was necessary. Now I need to start to fight back again. I need to start the hard work.
Time for me to start finding my way. Leave the excuses behind. Yes, I've had a difficult time. Yes, I've allowed myself to take it easy and do some emotional self care.
Now my self care needs to turn to taking care of my physical body. It takes some time for the physical self care to also affect my emotional, but it will come. I need to put the effort it. It will be so worth it.
So even though it's snowing outside again - yes, you read that right. It's snowing. The ground is covered in snow, and it's STILL coming down. I'm going to lace up and get out there. Lulu and I are going to get out there and get 'er done. We might not go a full 3 miles, but we're going to do more than yesterday. Heck, who knows. Maybe something will click and we will do the full 3miles. Either way, anything will be a success today.
Went out. Got in 1.8miles. Not too bad. I didn't finish a training day, but I got moving again.
