I'm feeling really lazy today. So... I decided not to ride my exercise bike today. But its okay for two reasons. One is that I read an article on SP today that said you should take a day or two off a week to let your body heal. Well, I haven't taken a day off since I started so I can do so now. Second, I'm not going to completely take a day off, instead I'm going to do my PM Yoga video. I should be doing some stretching anyway. This won't be as intense as the cycling so I kind of consider it a day off. Besides I'm a little afraid that if I actually took a day off that I would allow myself another day off the next day and next thing I'd know I'd be completely off track. The only bad thing about this scenario is that I feel guilty. I know I shouldn't but I can't help but feel like I'm cheating somehow.
I went out with my hubby & oldest brother last night. Before we left I looked up my favorite drinks to see if I could somehow fit them into my "nutrition" for the day. Well I could have fit one. Unfortunately I only like the really sweet, fruity drinks. I can't stand beer. And honestly I don't like the taste of alcohol at all. I only drink to get the buzz & have a good time. Otherwise, I'm a boring, shy wallflower. And I usually only drink a couple times a year. Well one is not enough to get a buzz. Maybe three. So I decided not to have anything & it was kind of a boring night. But today I feel good about the choice (especially because I've no hangover).
I am a little worried that I might be being to strict with myself. I'm sure I could have had half a donut yesterday. But I guess I'm so afraid that if I let myself have a little, I'll end up taking a lot. And then everything I've done so far would be a waste.
Now, I'd like to thank everyone for their comments on my blogs & any posts I've made. I can't say how much I appreciate & look forward to them. They mean a lot & I take everyone's advice to heart. I also really enjoy reading all your blogs and posts. It's so nice knowing I'm not alone.
