catching up with friends wasting time on FB this morning when I came across this status update from Endurogirl, “Feeling guilty about what you did or didn’t do yesterday doesn’t help you achieve your goals today.” SO TRUE!
Why do I stress out about taking 2 days off of exercise over the weekend?! It is NOT going to make me any slower in the long run. It is NOT going to shatter any goals that I have. I am not a professional runner or cyclist. I am not going to win any races. I am just doing this all to…well do it! BUT yet, I still feel GUILT.
GUILT that I couldn’t fit in that one little 4-5 mile run on either Saturday or Sunday.
I was just lazy. (Lazy should also be considered a bad 4-letter word. Don’t you think so?)
It is SO hard to find motivation after working a 12 hour night shift, especially when it is cold and gets dark so early. (Um, it was dark at 4:20pm! 😦 ) Usually I wake up around 2-3pm, have a cup of coffee and a small snack, get a little snuggle time in with the boys and hit the door running. NOT this weekend. The snuggles just felt too good. SO my butt stayed on the couch.
Thanks Endurogirl for giving me a reality check. I will do my 4-5 mile run today! AND it will be fast 🙂
