So, for some inexplicable reason I'm finding myself getting angry at the thought of exercising tonight. I'm not sure where this is coming from, since I already regularly exercise and I don't mentally struggle through it. Today just seems different, and something feels way off. When I think of the fact that I should get up and work in a workout before bed, I start to feel angry and I don't know why. Maybe angry because I'm tired and had a bad day at work, who knows... At first I thought that if I just started up my workout dvd and got going that my stress would melt away. WRONG! I actually got more pissed off, but had nothing to direct that anger at because I'm not sure what is upsetting me.
So, I don't think the point is to find out why I'm getting angry, since I just assume that this is a temporary mood swing that will go away regardless what the cause is. My problem is that part of me just wants to tell myself to chill out and take an unscheduled night off, and that if I'm not feeling it tonight then I shouldn't sweat it. I mean, I work out at least 5 days a week anyways, so an extra day off this week won't kill me since it's not like it's a habit.
On the other hand, I feel guilty that I'm letting myself be controlled by my emotions, and the longer I sit here and stew over whether I should just force myself to work out or not, the more I run the risk of staying up past my bedtime.
So, I don't really know what I'm asking here (I guess being tired and cranky makes me not think straight). I'm just not sure if I should muscle through it to keep up my consistency, or give myself a break for the night.
