I am going to exercise today as though I didn't overeat last night

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Last night was dinner out with the girls to celebrate two January birthdays. Thai food. Normally I would order a Thai ice tea but I chose to have water instead. That was a good decision BUT I ate more than I needed to. And when I overeat, I feel sluggish and Today I have been feeling sluggish and dragging through my exercise routine. I was hoping that the forecast of sunny, blue skies might mitigate the slug mode but it is gray and wet as usual. I swam my laps (you are supposed to be wet when you are in the pool). I walked the dog through the woods ( and had one soggy doggy) and this afternoon I will hit the weights at the gym and do 15 minutes on the elliptical ( how can people spend so much time exercising indoors?!). So I just have to act "as if" I had not eaten too much last night and "as if" it is not another soggy, gray day in the Pacific Northwest. Next week I head to Colorado and that keeps me sane. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy!

    Ah, are you another January birthday?
    The day after my birthday I know I was sweating chocolate Trophy cupcake with salted caramel frosting...sounded delicious but then it's the next day and I was on the treadmill with what felt like 10,000 minutes left to go until I could justify getting off. But I did it, and drank water, and the day after I was glad that I was back into the swing.
    The important part is pushing through a 'bleh' mindset, and you did. So, Hurray!

    It's tough to exercise indoors, but sometimes ya just gotta. Hope your grey skies clear up, try to enjoy your workout "as if" you were outdoors. emoticon
