I managed it....

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Finally, for the first time in what feels like months I got back on my bike. It was only 10 minutes, but it wasn't hard and I felt good about it when I got done. It helped me to remember that it is doable, but only if I quit making excuses.

I woke up this morning feeling like I got a great nights sleep but not wanting to get up. My bed just felt so cozy. But I forced myself up....taking a shower usually helps get me jump started. Not this morning. I feel sluggish and exhausted. I'm sipping my coffee, hoping it helps, but right now it feels like nothing but sleep will help. I think this is a sinus thing....but I really am not digging it.

Right now I'm taking things one day at a time because that's all I can handle. I want to exercise again tonight. I really do. I'm nervous that I won't feel good and I will let that be an excuse. But I'm going to do it anyway. I'm going to ride my bike for 10 minutes tonight. Even if I have to rest every minute. I'm going to make it happen. I can and will do this.

Thanks for lending me your ear this morning. I can barely keep my eyes open to type this so I'm not completely sure if it makes sense.

    You can do it. I know how hard it is to get started especially when you're tired, and it stinks when you are just getting started again. You can do this. Just keep going. You want this. You forget sometimes when you are happy. Which is a good thing, I know, because I'm the same way. But you will feel amazing if you keep going.

    That's so exciting! It's amazing how our brains hold us back, but once we start doing something it's actually quite enjoyable
