Day 3

Thursday, October 27, 2011

I was determined for yesterday to be the first of many "no-excuses" days. It started off great. My gym clothes were on and I ate healthy almost all day. The evenings are still a weak spot for me and I'm working on that each night. Last night was no different. I did have Mcdonalds for dinner but I chose a Happy Meal. I'm satisfied with my decision. The problem was that I didn't get my gym time in. After work, there was no energy left. I even canceled my niece's therapy appointment.
I was sitting on the floor. I don't know how I ended up there. I was exhausted. But I said the least I can do is stretch. So I stretched out every muscle in my body. Wow, that felt good.
So good that I grabbed my jump rope. I jumped while I watched a movie. That felt even better. Next, I grabbed my hula-hoop. It actually stayed up more than it fell down. In the end, I got my total of 30 minutes of exercise in and I'm so proud of myself.

Today is another day of healthy eating for me. I have no jobs to do this morning so I'm off to the gym as soon as the little one gets on the bus!

    That was great! I try & tell my hubby to do that too. At night, after work and he's tired and thinks he SHOULD exercise but says he's too tired, doesn't want too - I suggest to just commit to 10 min. That's all. But make sure you really mean it and will let yourself truly stop after 10 min, if you still want too. Because what typically happens is that we just need that extra push...once we get started, we usually feel ok or good and by that 10 min mark, we WANT to keep going! So then you can and you'll end up with the full workout. But the key is that if at 10 min you have had enough and want to stop, you have to stop. Or it won't work (mentally) next time. You really have to believe it can be only a 10 min commitment b/c most of are able to accept trying that when tired where maybe that 30 or 60 min sounds overwhelming and impossible at the start. Great job! I am so proud of you too!!
