Excuses

Saturday, January 30, 2010

I had so many reasons why I couldn't exercise today. You see...I had a bad dream and woke up grumpy. While shuffling barefoot to the bathroom, I stepped in something the cat coughed up, then I had forgotten to put TP in the bathroom, as I went back into my room to clean up after the cat, I whacked my knee on the bed frame. I could go on and on stating "reasons" for why I needed to take a "poor me" day. I miss my mom. I feel guilty for not mailing out presents I promised to mail at the start of the week (too cold to leave the house). My knee hurts a little. So, I sat in my chair with a cup of coffee prepared to do nothing today. I deserved it.

Then I thought of my goals. I read a few Spark People Blogs, and before I knew it, I was up and moving, I did my first 30 minutes of cardio and plan to do another thirty minutes soon. I am tired today...but not too tired to justify not moving my body.

By the way, does anyone know what rule of cat-dom states that one has to "toss their cookies" where the human bare foot will step on it? emoticon

    Yep it is a cat's delight to *toss up a nice wet soggy slippery hair ball* just where you least expect it so that you can do the *oops toes over teacups* and kerplop or you can do the *skid across the floor woops woops woops* or you can do the *squish it hop on one foot until you reach a destination* all the while they sit back and snicker behind kitty paws.

    So glad you did not let any of that stop you from doing your exercise. Your rockin.

    Congratulations on finding the motivation to get up and move. I'm so glad that SP motivated you. You can do it!

    As for the cats. I'm not so sure it's just the kitties that are conspiring to move their "cookies" from the litterbox. I have a puppy who like to help. Now that's gross!

    The cats do it I swear just so they can laugh at us later.
    Way to go on getting up and moving. I hope your day got better and you felt great after you worked out.

    Cheers
