Same story, different day...

Friday, February 26, 2016

So, I decided to try to workout....I made up a great tracking log and started right away which happened to be Tuesday. The routine is simple.....some very mild strength training along with 10 minutes of cardio. I was so excited because I actually went home and did it. No excuses. I did once everything else was done but BEFORE I sat down for snuggles. It didn't take long and was fairly pain free. Wednesday comes along and BAM, nailed it! Plus I did a couple extra minutes cardio just because. The plan is to do 15 minutes of cardio each day next week that I workout. Then Thursday comes along....no dice. I had plenty of time, but I did nothing. Not a damn thing. This is where I tend to throw in the towel. Well....I already ruined it so why bother?

I'll tell you why! Because I matter damn it! I deserve to be happy AND healthy. I deserve to look good and feel great! I deserve to sleep better at night. My son deserves a good example. So, I'm not dumb enough to think it's going to be easy tonight. I have some obstacles in my way. Number one being that my son will be with his Dad this weekend and my boyfriend and I will likely go out for a drink tonight. We will probably be out fairly late. The trick for me will be getting the workout in BEFORE we go out, but that means getting cleaned up again. Yuck. But it's the best/only way I see to make it work. I need this. I feel so much better when I'm active.

next stop: Foodville. Food is an issue....today I have had an extra large bowl of cereal (laziness), chicken salad and crackers that a coworker brought it, coffee with full fat and sugar creamer, maple bourbon pickles, a Hershey's almond bar, a bag of doritos, taco meat, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and miracle whip, and I'm now drinking a diet mountain dew. And it's only noon! Holy cow!

Have a wonderful day/weekend friends.

    LOL, I'm knee deep in Foodville myself today. Tomorrow is new day and we can surely find a way to work in our ten minutes, right??? SOON my valentine's candy will be gone which is great, unless I replace it with more sugar! DAILY STRUGGLE! Hugs.

    Just remember how much better you will feel out enjoying that drink if you know that you have already gotten in your workout! emoticon
