At the beginning of this week, I set my status to reflect my 7 day goal of exercsing for at least 30 minutes every day. Sunday & Monday went well. Tuesday when I walked through my door at home, it was cold in my house, I was cold. I don't normally run the heater until it gets to the lower 60's and under...I hate that stuffiness in the air, especially when I sleep. I would rather layer on clothes and get under a blanket than run the heater.
Anyway...I wasn't feeling stripping out of my clothes to change into workout clothes nor was I feeling being in shorts and a t-shirt until I warmed up to do my workout. But I knew I had to do something and I knew that if I sat down to get under a blanket to warm up, I would get too comfy to get moving later.
Instead, I turned on the stereo and danced...by myself, all around the living room, kitchen and dining room. My dog was looking at me like I was crazy (which I'm used to) but he got over it. I did this for 35 minutes. It wasn't the best workout I've ever had but I did break a sweat and it kept me from sitting on the couch and stuffing my face.
I am determined to meet my goal...and today I've got a run in mind when I get home. Yes, it will be cold again when I get home BUT I noticed my portable electric heater in the corner of my closet this morning so I will bust it out to change into my running digs this time!
I've been in a slump for the last month and this 7 day exercise goal is serving two purposes. One, to get me out of the slump and two, to get me through this Saturday. After that I am starting my second stint of the Livefit trainer. It's a 12 week program so that will keep me focused for a while. And by the way, anyone who likes a structured program that isn't the same thing day in and day out, I highly recommend this! Yet it has enough freedom for wiggle room on occasion.
Thanks for reading my blog! Remember: stay positive!
