Proud of Myself

Saturday, November 19, 2011

I made it to the gym tonight for a half hour workout, which is the least amount of time I have ever spent there. The gym closed at 7 though, and I made it there at 6:30-just enough time for a jog! I slept until 4pm, because I was on midnights last night, so I was beat when I got home this morning. I am on midnights again tonight, so while I was eating dinner I was thinking to myself, "Do I really have to go to the gym tonight? It won't hurt to miss it just once. I have been every other day this week..." I could have easily justified not going to the gym. It's all the way across town, and I'd only be there for half an hour. Not today though! I probably won't make it to the gym tomorrow, because I work until 8am, then I am back again at 4pm, so it doesn't leave a lot of workout time. I knew that I would regret not going if that's the decision I made.
This has always been my problem. I make excuses do something "Just this once", and I end up spiraling out of my diet, exercise and healthy choices. This isn't the first time in the last week or so that I have done this, and it makes me feel really good knowing that I am sticking to it, and putting myself first, in a healthy way. Plus, I really do enjoy going to the gym. It makes me feel great!

    I am proud of you too!! I know how it feels, this past week, I had not worked out actually for the past two weeks, and like a road runner commerical, I was around here, getting on my swimsuit, flip flops, and sweatshirt with some flimsy capri's to get to the pool in time for a wate aerobics class - I made it, oh, btw the way, it was so cold outside, I could not fathom why I did not know that, but I went anyway and it was the best!!
