Perpetual failings or perpetual beginnings
Monday, April 29, 2013
Today, I made three healthy salads. I was exhausted this morning because I haven't been sleeping well lately. Since I was up, I went for a 30min walk quite early, and it was lovely. I didn't push myself, just enjoyed the walk.
I had started P90X and recently got sick and then really tired so I had to stop "temporarily", just couldn't "Bring It" anymore after doing the first 4 weeks. On the bright side, last time I tried I only got in 10 days! I know I can't rush back into exercise, so I take it easy, doing things that are easier on my body like walking, biking and aquafitness. But I am doing it. I like to see myself as a perpetual beginner, not as a regular quitter!
Then, knowing very well how tired I am and how likely that makes me to get sick again, I went all out and got some good veggies and made three good salad, a chickpea and a couple of quinoa ones. Good ones, with tasty fresh herbs and good cheese. This way, I have someone good to go to when I get hungry. I know this will keep my energy up. That and avoiding the leftover cookies... energy sappers... out of my sight!
I still had some chocolate though, cause I'm not a saint!
