Today was a real awakening for me. I work afternoon shift and Chris was getting off nights so he'll spend until about 1pm sleeping. In preparation for not being able to go back into the bedroom after getting up to get dressed, I put all my workout clothes into the spare bathroom so I could get dressed and go work out before having to get ready for work. Even with that preparation, it took me all morning to actually work up the will to get dressed and go downstairs to spend some 1 on 1 time with the treadmill. I even found myself talking myself out of it, saying that skipping today was ok and I'll do it tomorrow (knowing full well that tomorrow would be a repeat of today). This is totally not ok! I tried to talk myself out of completing half an hour of exercise even though I'd just spent the morning watching shows that I don't even like. For healthy motivated people, this wouldn't make sense...but to me, in the moment, it was perfectly rational. I need somebody to smack me upside the head when I start thinking like that. However, I realized that I was sabotaging myself and with little time to spare I headed downstairs. And now...I feel GREAT! I feel energized, my mood is better, and I feel as though I accomplished something.
In my healthy grocery haul the other night, I bought 3 containers of yogurt. I go through spurts with yogurt. I'll love it for a bit then I won't be able to stand the sight of it. However, I think I've found a new favorite food.
