I didn’t want to, but I did.

a5a776c2943adb262bc242cf5e6e1305I don’t feel like it.  I need to study.  I’m tired. I’m stressed out.  I need a nap.  My butts too big.  I don’t like how running makes my breasts bounce.  I feel slow.  I don’t have time.  I’m out of shape.  It’s getting late.  I don’t have anything to wear.  I don’t think my shoes fit right.  I don’t have a good playlist.  I’ll start tomorrow.  I have a headache.  I feel sick.  My hip aches. 

I just don’t want to…  BUT I DID IT ANYWAYS.

Today was pretty good for a Monday.  I still felt tired when I woke up this morning, but once I got to work I had a little more pep in my step.  I felt more present and MUCH more engaged than I did all last week.  

I got new running shoes yesterday and had planned on running today, but by the time I got home from work then home from dinner; I felt too tired and worn-out to run.  In fact I started getting a headache out of the blue.  I decided that the smart thing to do would be to skip my workout, rest and study tonight then do something tomorrow.  Besides, how could I workout if I wasn’t feeling well?  Exercise would just cause me to overexert myself and then I would feel even more crummy, right?

Despite all the doubts and excuses, I went anyways and I am glad that I did.  It was not my best run ever.  In fact I walked a lot, but I am glad that I made it a point to get out of the house and get moving!

  1. Keep moving and keep challenging yourself. I find that setting some goals helps to quash the excuses (at least most of the time). And have fun at it. If it’s not fun the excuses tend to win.
