Having one of "those" days...

Monday, March 07, 2011

Actually it's been about 4 of "those" days in a row!

"those" days = Having total disregard for the healthy life I am trying to lead. Working out seems like a chore. Eating healthy feels annoying and boring. The thought "is this all even worth it" has crossed my mind a couple times.

I just find it hilarious sometimes what I can convince myself to do. For example, this weekend I decided that I didn't want to do work out at all. Well, I convinced myself that I could only do that if I did 2-a-days Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Why am i trying to bargain with myself!? It is so silly! I should have just worked out this weekend, because those cold and early mornings can be so killer!

I really am not letting it get me down or anything. I know that this to shall pass. I will get my focus back and I will be excited about the new life I am creating for myself. It just annoys me that this happens. Do these low days have to happen so that I can appreciate the really great days? Maybe. I guess this is all part of the learning experience.

Luckily, I haven't eaten too horribly. I will admit to the 2 oreos and 1 slice of delicious veggie pizza that I ate today and the 2 mini Kit Kat bars that I ate yesterday. Is that going to kill me? No way! Sometimes a girl just needs a slice of pizza!

Thanks for reading my ramblings! Please feel free to let me know how you get over these slumps!

    My excuses are my down fall. I make them a lot! - You don't need to exercise today because yesterday you walked up the steps more than twice as much as you usually do. - you deserve that candy because you ate good for two days in a row.

    Yea, I hear you...it is hilarious and i know when I am doing it and i STILL do it.

    the only thing to remember is that it is a journey, not a race. Everyday is a new day. Don't look at what you did for the last four days, just look at today as a new beginning and do better today than yesterday. not perfect, just better.

    Focus on the good things you did, rather than what you didn't do. For instance, I went skiing for 4 hours on Saturday, but ate out 2 meals (EEK!). Rather than kicking myself, I have to appreciate how I managed to ski for 4 hours even with being in horrible shape. And remembering those small things can save your sanity when you just can't seem to get it together!
