I was a slug this week for 5 days. Two days I didn't feel well, so I gave myself a pass, but after that I did NOTHING. I didn't FEEL like exercising. It was too much effaht!!
(my friend has a very heavy new england accent and when people from Kentucky were visiting they asked her why she didn't pronounce her R's and she said - too much effaht)
Anyway,I felt bad about having nothing to add to the daisies exercise totals. I felt bad giving myself 1's on the spark coach check list. ( And spark coach lets you know - having trouble? Don't be afraid to email a coach - we're here for you. - Here are 5 articles on motivating yourself to exercise) After the first two sick days I did make feeble attempts to "get ready" to exercise, but I let things get in the way. We were supposed to go skiing yesterday, but decided it was too cold and I was glad because even though I had planned it I didn't want to do it anymore. I read several of those articles on how to get yourself to exercise and actually, "coincidentally" got one in an email from nerd fitness. Great ideas if you put them into practice.
Finally, today I exercised. Thank goodness! I had planned to do a walking DVD this morning but wound up doing it at 3 PM. But I did it - the whole 75 minutes. It felt great. I think I broke through the exercise resistance. I really don't know exactly what got into me. An attack of extreme laziness?
I am so glad that I didn't decide to chuck everything and eat like crazy. I did stay on my eating plan. Even thought I was inactive to the max I didn't gain any weight. I guess I learned the lesson that I can get through things. Problems in one area don't have to carry over into another. With determination I can get myself back on track.
