2/12/14 Patterns

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

I see myself repeating so many patterns!! It's time to figure out how to break out. Last night, I did not want to run. Not one bit. I fought myself tooth and nail. The plan had been to run 6 miles, then I was going to blow it off altogether, and finally I talked myself into 4 miles. I didn't even like it until the last half mile. And then how did I reward myself? I ate ice cream. Not just a little half cup serving, a small cookies and cream shake. All that effort, thrown down the drain. I'm still happy I ran and I know I got more benefit than just burning the calories that I promptly ate back, but seriously K, why do you do this?

Both of these things are patterns, not wanting to do something when I feel like I "have" to and eating bad when I'm working out more. You can't out-exercise a bad diet. (And for anyone who is thinking that maybe I shouldn't train for things and therefore might cut out the "have to" attitude that trips me up, I don't usually work out nearly as much when I'm not training for something, overall it motivates me, I just have bad days)

Since I last blogged it's been a few steps in the right direction, a few in the wrong. Get a handle on one thing, lose it on another. I'm just going to keep trying and keep my eyes on the prize (me!!)

    You can do this. Stop focusing on the negative and pat yourself on the back for the positive steps you've taken
