Day 51 - No Excuses
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
An early morning argument with myself...
515am - Alarm goes off
Many excuses me - I'm not getting up.
No excuses me - You can have 10 more minutes.
525am - Alarm goes off again
Many excuses me - I'm still not getting up.
No excuses me - Yes you are. You're going to walk this morning.
Many excuses me - Nope, not getting up.
No excuses me - Yes you are because you have to go to the bathroom.
Many excuses me - Fine, but then I'm going back to bed.
No excuses me - You're going for a walk.
Many excuses me - No I'm not. My body is tired. I need a day to rest. I'm going to lay on the couch and watch the Olympics.
No excuses me - You are going walking, it's only 73 degrees outside. You are NOT going to pass up that kind of weather.
Many excuses me - I'll put on my tennis shoes, but I'm not going for a walk. I'll go later in the day.
No excuses me - Yes, that's a fabulous idea. Pass up the 73 degree weather and go out when it's 104 later today. Perfect.
Many excuses me - Fine, I'll go out, but I'm only walking for 10 minutes then I'm coming home.
No excuses me - Fine. You do that.
5:50am - left for walk
6:40am - returned from "10 minute" walk. Yay NO EXCUSES ME!
The battle continued throughout my walk. "I'm not walking to the bottom of the hil", "Yes you are" ....and I did! I am so glad that I went. It was a great way to start the morning. My reward for the walk??? I think I'll take a nap in the pool during lunch today!
So today was my weigh-in day. I did wait until after my walk to weigh-in. I really thought I was only going to do 10 minutes, so I didn't think it was a big deal. Anyway, I ended up being down a 1/2 lb for the month. Not a lot, but I'm happy with it. It'll be a bigger number in August. I'm going to work harder!
Have a great last day of July!
