Breaking the cycle
Monday, June 09, 2014
Oh wow! I totally conquered today and showed it who's boss. From the moment I opened my eyes this morning, I knew I wasn't off to a good start. For starters I went to bed too late; 1:00am. So when that alarm went off at 6:30, I had to ignore it. Then when it was finally time for me to get up I just wasn't feeling it. (Lesson 1: Adequate sleep is so important)
Then when I got to work, it seemed like everyone wanted me to make their situation a priority. Uh...EVERYTHING can NOT be a priority...only one thing and everything else falls in line. Yeah, they don't get it. (Lesson 2: Stop letting people at work stress you out. The work itself may be stressful but don't let the people add to it)
I didn't pack a lunch, snack, a crumb, nothing, so of course I was hungry and started getting a headache. I had my water but that was not enough. I finally broke down and got something out of the vending machine. I figured peanut butter crackers were better than nothing. (Lesson 3: Preparedness is necessary. Bring snacks! Grab the banana next time)
I got home and told myself that I would take a nap and get up and do my daily workout. I took my nap and that pesky alarm went off. I started thinking maybe I can skip today. Maybe I can tack it on to another day. Then asked myself why? I took my nap and I feel better now, so why do I want to skip today's workout. I had no answer except for me just not wanting to do it. That wasn't acceptable. So I got up and got dressed, went down stairs and pressed play and gave my all to Alpha Cardio. I did way better than the first time...WAAAAAYYY better.
Heck yeah! I decided to not give in to my regular cycle of starting and then stopping by week 2. Not this time. I am more determined than ever to complete this entire program. I'm not going to let me not getting up in the morning mess up my entire program. Just take a nap and then work it out!
