Day 6- Perseverance
Thursday, June 27, 2013
So I almost blew my streak. It is really warm here- ridiculous. I was tired today and didn't want to do anything active. I procrastinated and procrastinated, made excuses, and ultimately reached 11 PM saying that one day off was not a big deal. I blew my calorie count today too (although actually nowhere near as badly as I thought) so I felt pretty cruddy. And guilty. And then I thought about how it is ALWAYS tomorrow. And I always let myself slide "a little" which turns into forever. So I didn't tonight. 11 PM and I got my 30 minutes in. I felt pretty silly, but I did it.
I found a video from the only exercise program I ever enjoyed: Inhale with Steve Ross. I loved it then and I still love it. I would wake up at 5:30 AM as a not terribly athletic or early bird teenager my senior year of high school. Boy, it was a disappointment when I signed up for a yoga class in college. I didn't know anything about yoga- turned out I had signed up for a light stretching and relaxation yoga course. I thought I was going to be kicking my body into shape and I ended up snoring on the floor (yes I really did). So embarrassing!
