Day 18: (Temporarily) Derailed
Thursday, June 02, 2011
A bad day with lots of exams, end of year questionnaires and meetings left me weak and vulnerable and my willpower armor starting to crack. When DH suggested a glass of wine to unwind I totally thought I could do just one and then convince him to go home so I could STILL get my run in.
Totally wrong! 6 glasses of wine and several fattening tapas later, we finally made it home around midnight.
No run. Derailed. Fail. Lose your turn.
WHY? Why, why, why? On a Wednesday? Saturday, Friday, even THURSDAY is almost an acceptable fail, but WEDNESDAY?
I will be strong. I will carry on. I will survive. My little tiny spark will survive.
Because I like how exercising makes me feel. Because I want to run a race. Because I can already tell how my clothes are fitting better and there are fewer lumpy bits of me to whine about.
I am in this for the long haul. A day is just a day. One step back and two steps forward. So today, back on track. One day at a time, and plan ahead for the two big speedbumps later this week. (Office party on Friday, Wedding on Saturday.)
