As has been said, if we THINK we are going to have a bad day, then odds are, we will! You seem to be putting that theory into practice given the other post you made!

I am wondering if you are making too many changes all at once! This can have a huge affect on us, and also if you have increased your exercise regime quite a bit, this can more than be largely responsible for the extra tiredness this a.m. which in turn has created a grumpy person.

I suggest that the Dietary and Fitness changes are made SLOWLY - your mind and body will thank you for it; your relationships (work and personal) will thank you for it; and believe it or not, so will your puppy :-) Also, ensure that you are getting enough good protein, healthy fats/oils and enough carbs from things like wholegrain breads, potatoes, brown rice etc. because our brain needs that too!

I agree just fit it in when you can maybe try at lunch or after. Whatever exercise, you get in is good. Think about it! It is more than what you had in the beginning! emoticon

You're free to run later in the day, but not if, as you say, you're be "making up for...." "Making up for" is another way of saying "punish myself." You're free to choose not to run daily or to do so, but do it because it feels good and makes you feel productive and that you're taking care of yourself. No more self-imposed punishments; they serve only to tear one down.

P.S. The word "start" only has positive connotations. There's nothing bad about a start, unless you tell a stranger on the street that he's funny-looking.

An idea that really helps my thinking is this: If you got a speeding ticket on your way to work, would you think you should speed the rest of the day? Or , would you make sure to pay attention to your driving?

Hi!

I find as someone that suffers from depression that it is the way that I look at things that can heavily influence whether I have a good day or a bad day. I would suggest to stop dwelling on the fact that you did not jog this morning and have the best day at work that I possible could and then do it just like you said this afternoon/evening. Think of how good it will feel and how happy your puppy is going to be. The sense of accomplishment you will feel from completing your jog and how you are one step (or many? :)) from completing your goal(s). You can do this! Have a great day at work, Mama Kahlert. hugs

Recently I`ve been waking up at 6:00am to go jogging with my puppy at 6:30 before work. This morning my alarm goes off and i hit the snooze button....it goes off again and I reset it for 7:10 for just work.I was waaay to tired this morning but now I feel bad for missing my jog (because it not only benefits me but also give my puppy exercise) and know I should make it up after work but I get the feeling that it`s going to be "one of those days" where I just don`t feel like doing anything. In need of some serious inspiration today or ideas on how to keep my routine going please!!! emoticon emoticon
