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!

    emoticon Well I did the exact same thing yesterday... minus the 11pm workout. Good to know that I am not the only one who feels like that sometimes. And now I am inspired, because if you can do it, so can I! emoticon emoticon

  I am so glad that you did that for yourself! Of course, if you are injured or sick, taking a day off isn't going to mean ruination. Slacking, on the other hand, gets us nowhere. And you did not slack! You pushed on through, and did an awesome job!

Being a night shift person, I don't really think of 11pm as all that late, actually I'm just getting going good around that time, usually! It really is a 24 hour clock, and if that is the time that you can find for yourself, then don't feel guilty.

    Your blog kicked me in the butt cuz last night about 11 pm I realized I hadn't exercised and I used the excuse it's late. You proved to me that is hogwash. Thanks. emoticon
