I've known this for awhile, but it became painfully apparent last night. I love my couch. I love walking in the door after a long day at work to have it greet me at the door. It always supports me, no matter if I'm watching TV, snuggled up with a book, or taking a nap. We've become really close over the years, and it's hard to leave once we get together.
This was my problem last night. I took my dog for a walk with my husband (about 3/4 mile), and when we got back, I put on some workout clothes, fully intending to get on the treadmill as planned. We were both ready for dinner, and I had a pot roast and veggies all ready so we ate. Then we got sucked into the couch vortex and ended up watching netflix. After every episode (of criminal minds) I kept thinking to myself, "ok, NOW get up and get on the treadmill". Instead it was "just one more"... until it was bedtime! At least I got to bed a little early.
So I set my alarm and got up early enough to spend 20 minutes on the treadmill this morning, and also drank 1 serving of water... before 6:00am! That is a small victory in itself. Although, that to me was to make up for last night. My husband works tonight (for the next 3 nights actually), so I plan to get in a good workout every night he works (because as easy as it is to get sucked into the couch, it's even easier when he's there).
So.... my goals for today:
Stick to my food plan
Drink 6+ servings of water
Get in a GOOD workout
Off to get some water and get to work!
