dont wanna dont wanna dont wanna, ok i'm going

Saturday, August 30, 2008

I didn't work out as planned yesterday... I did grocery shopping and errands after work.

Bought some Blue Bunny Natural Vanilla Ice Cream for my honey last night ... mm --- humm. I decided to have some. BUT it was so delicious.... it was so close to my favorite ice cream back in Texas (that we can't get here in PA) -- Blue Bell Natural Vanilla Bean. So I had a 1 cup serving. THEN I had another 1 cup serving. (me and DH finished off the whole 1.75 qt) This is nothing unusual...... it's old behaviour. But I busted the calorie intake for the day.... and slid back to a old, destructive behaviour.

Ok, pick up and carry on... it's a brand new day.

Its 2:35 now. I want to go to the gym and work out. It closes at 4 so I better get going.

But I don't wanna dont wanna dont wanna...... That's how I feel.

So I decided that writing about it... and telling on myself from yesterday (holding myself accountable) may help.

OK. Feelings aren't facts. I don't know why my inner toddler emoticon doesn't want to do anything... but after I write this, I going to get my work out clothes on, put on my sneakers and show up at the gym with my work out plan (printed from the SparkPeople workout generator)

I'll see what happens then. Got my plan. Looking at my motivation collage -- (quite a few fitness images on there)
Got support... Thank you Spark Friends. Just got to get moving.

I know I'll feel better later... but I still don't wanna.

Going to the gym.......... check yall later! emoticon

    Thank you for the encouragement. I really related to your blog -- my daughter and i worked out this morning and even though it was terribly hard to keep going, I DID IT and felt so much better for the rest of the day. Hope that you got to the gym -- each time is a small victory!

    It is hard to watch those around you eat something tasty and not have a bite!! My daughter, her husband and my two grandsons came over last night and went out for Taco Bell later on. OH MY GOODNESS I WANTED SOME TACO BELL!!!!! I went outside while they ate so I would not take a bite. It worked. emoticon

    I was already knocking around my priorities for today -- after church ...bills (first of the month), ...lunch (always a priority!), out my desk drawer, ...watching a Netflix movie, ...and if I have time, working out downstairs! WRONG! I am thinking hard on that '10 minutes' thing. If I can just get down those basement steps, the working out is actually not bad at all. Playing the tv or music, elliptical or jump rope or cardio fit, or exercise dvd, etc. And the great feeling afterwards! ...If I can just make it down those steps to make that commitment for 10 minutes, I will be in great shape! Thanks for the encouragement and good advice!

    Funny blog Moogiebee. I do better exercising in a class situation. THAT seems to hold me accountable. Feels great once I am on the way home... LOL. I CAN relate to the ice cream cravings. In PA there is Turkey Hill.. which in one of the best ice creams around.
    WELCOME to positive sparkers too!

    Boy can I relate to your blog... not about the ice cream (chips are my destructive behavior food)...but I can relate about the gym. I hope you made it. I know that if you did you feel like an olympian for overcoming the toddler from within!!

    Stay away from the sugar free ice cream...gas X couldn't alleviate the tummy rumblings that that stuff causes. Weeeehhheee emoticon

    Hey, if you going to do some damage, eat the no sugar stuff; that'll get your stomach roaring and when you are tempted to think about eating the real stuff, then maybe you won't!

    Because that's what I did. Check it out on my spark food log.

    Aren't I bad! emoticon emoticon

    I hope when you read this, you are just back from the gym! Sometimes when I don't want to go, I just make the goal getting there because once I am there, I do what I am suppose to do--- So, instead of having to work out and thinking of the work out, just say "its time to get to the gym".

    Good work on your blog, becoming real with the good and bad within our worlds helps calm the negative messages. You are not alone, you are not the only person that slides back once in awhile, but you alone pay your price--- STAY STRONG and leave that dang ice cream alone, it isn't always worth the momentary joy. Health and fitness is a way better high--- (says a still big person)

    Good luck,
