Drat! Crud! Oops, I did it again. I was going to get up this morning and go for a walk/run. I had made a plan with my weightloss/nutrition student counselor that I would add morning workouts 3 days a week. Specifically so that I can take Friday evening off from exercising. We talked about using rewards or punishments to try and get me to do it, but I told her that at 6 a.m. neither one works very well. This morning I actually woke up and got out of bed and went to the bathroom and proceeded to climb back into be for another hour. That was progress, but not good enough.
I have been telling myself for months that I am going to get up at 6 and do my 5k My Way workouts, but I keep hitting snooze. If I am completely conscious, I have lots of excuses. Most mornings though I do it by habit. Its a habit I want to break.
This was just on my facebook page from Ilovetorun.com. I'm not quite this early, but I plan for tomorrow morning to be like this. (of course I won't run that fast or that far, but...)
4:30am "I hate to run, I'm going back to bed"
4:45am "well, I'm up, so I'll get ready"... "maybe I should go back to bed"
5:00am "I'll regret not going"
5:15am (mile 1) "I should of stayed in bed"
mile 2... "oh, hey look at my pace"
mile 3..."I need to sign up for that 10K next month"
mile 4... "I'm so gonna kick arz in that race"
mile 5... "I AM a running goddess"
mile 6..."that was freakin' awesome, can't wait to get up tomorrow and do it again!"

I wasn't going to try to get up tomorrow, but since I failed today, I really want to do it tomorrow. Then Friday morning for sure because I want to go to the theatre* on Friday evening. I will do this. I will stop making excuses, like the fact that it is supposed to be raining tomorrow morning. I will go anyway because if I had gone today it was only cool, but dry. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow!

I guess you can take the teacher out of the classroom, but you can't take the classroom out of the teacher!
