The Couch Coma [05.22.11]

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I am listening to the rain pouring outside. The windows are open and I can feel a warm breeze throughout the house. It smells and sounds so perfect. I actually turned off one of my favorite shows [Love it or List it] just so I could listen. Who needs a TV and Junk Food when you've got this?!

Anyways, over this past week I have come to the realization that healthy habits are somewhat like pulling off a bandaid. It hurts at first but once you are done you are sure glad to have it off.

I have a confession to make. The last two weeks I have been sitting on my couch. Literally. Mindlessly eating and watching hours upon hours of TV. I felt gross, I despised myself but I did it anyway. I think my husband could see I was doing absolutely nothing and hated it. On Saturday he gave me just the push I needed to get out of my Couch Coma. He suggested we go for a walk with the dogs. I whined and bitched but eventually I obliged.

Oh. My. Lord. 90 minutes later, hot, sweaty and out of breath. I did NOT expect a walk THAT long and MAN was I ever out of shape.

Two days "Out"and I am already feeling much better. It's not perfect, but I am trying.

Does anyone else wonder why you ever stopped in the first place?

HAPPY Long Weekend to my fellow Canadians. Enjoy the time off with your families

    I know what you mean! Sometimes the excuses just seem easier. You let yourself think that you have a valid reason to skip the workout (I have a sunburn, my stomach hurts, my head hurts, it is too hot, I had a long day at work and I just want to relax... valid... right?). Eventually you even stop thinking about it. Then when you look around and realize what you are doing. Making yourself start again feels twice as hard.
