One of those days

Ever had one of those days when you don't want to work out? not because you're tired but just because you don't feel up to it? One of those days where you can't seem to find the keys because they're usually on the table but for some reason today they ended up in your purse. And well we all know how the purse story goes you, digging for things you well know are in there but you can't seem to dig out when needed. One those days when you can't get off your tush to get in your work out clothes. One of those days you justify not running that day, give yourself a pep talk, agree that its ok tomorrow is another day and tomorrow come rain or high tides you'll be out there running. I've to confess I have in the past had one of those days where I've justified not running today but promised myself to run tomorrow and tomorrow just never seemed to come for me.

So today as I sat on the couch going back and forth with myself whether to go running or not, I remembered how in the past 'tomorrow' never came and decided to go anyway. So very slowly I go into my work out clothes and hit the neighborhood 3 mile run pretty hard and did it well under 30mins. I'm living for the day I can do it under 20mins :) that day is coming I just know it. Yay!!!

I hope this encourages anyone reading this to not slack off but to push yourself today and go work out and make healthy eating/drinking choices :)

P.S. Each day I've an epic fall with my plan to eat before 8pm :( but I'll keep trying

I'm glad you decided to go! Sometimes I don't feel like working out. I'd prefer a heaping plate of pasta and a good book instead. But then I remember how much I don't like being fat and the gym wins!

Ugh, I totally have days like that. Today was one of those days for me and it's so awful! Glad you fought the temptation! Missing keys always seem to start it off. =)
