I finally got so sick of myself, I actually worked out!
Sick of making the same bad choices, eating something small and meaningless, and finding all kinds of reasons why I don't have time to work out - I charged up my ipod, and hopped right on the treadmill and worked out for 45 mins. I even was able to run - but my knees started hurting - so I backed off. I uploaded my workout from my ipod into nikePlus and seeing it online made me feel accomplished. And dare I say..... I actually enjoyed it? I enjoyed accomplishing it. Doing the right thing and not snacking!
So, I'll be setting some goals today - how many times per week I will be doing cardio on the treadmill. I need to get myself re-connected with my personal trainer and I need to download some new music (my sister has some great music I may try to copy from her instead of spending $$)!
The lesson in this for me is that its the single task of TODAY's workout, not the big goal of losing the next 60lbs that I need to focus on. We all know this - its nothing new - but I just have to keep reminding myself that all I have to do is work out today and not worry so much about tomorrow. Just get it out of the way and stop making excuses! So, when will I find time today to work out? I have the kids by myself today - and my 3 yr old always wants to hop on the treadmill or talk to me and ask questions while I'm trying to work out. Its ridiculous. That's the challenge for today.......I'll let you guys know how I figure it out!
