One day off, and ONLY ONE. aka Momentum. aka Sitting on the Jon
Posted Apr 15 1970 12:00am
I woke up this morning at 5:30am. I totally did not want to. I was pretty frustrated at the alarm, and was grumbling. I wanted to go back to bed. Badly.
But I did have to pee. LOL, so when I realised that falling back to sleep on the jon wouldn't help, I started thinking (please understand, this was at 5:30 AM!) and sat there for a min or two, too tired to move, fantasising about returning to my warm comfy bed.
But before I could, a powerful thought entered my head. You see, I didn't exercise yesterday (lame excuse: too sore and too busy) so I knew that I MUST go running as planned, no matter how I felt. Why? One day off is just that. ONE day off. This morning was day two. If I went back to bed now, one day would turn into two, potentially 3 or 4 or 30.
So what did I do today?
45 min running Thurs morning
1 hr Body Attack class Thurs evening :)
UPDATE: 50 min spin class Friday 6am
UPDATE: 40 min jogging with J Saturday
UPDATE: 30 min walking to/from Church Sunday
(I've noticed a pattern: 60, 50, 40, 30 - need to pick up the momentum once again!)
I LOVE MOMENTUM!
Moral of the story: If you want to go back to bed, sit on the jon and think about it for a minute. At 5:30am, it takes a couple minutes before your head can connect to your heart, and set you straight.
