Ok, today I traded a run for a nap… but I think I would have felt better if I did the run. But my oldest son has been throwing up each of the past 3 nights, so I haven’t been sleeping well at night. I couldn’t run yesterday because I had a meeting in the morning and then had to stay home with my sick son and get caught up on laundry. And then today I had a morning meeting again, and then had to stay home with my sick son again, and I had to wait for the guy to come clean our boiler and I fell asleep waiting… and basically yesterday and today have been full of excuses why I couldn’t run. Valid excuses, but still – excuses.
So, I need to figure out how to keep with the training when life gets in the way. I know I should have a workout planned that I can do at home. I know I should get to bed earlier so I can wake up at the crack of dawn and exercise. I know all these things that I should do, but knowing and doing are different things. My friend Jen, who by the way lost 85 pounds recently, posted a photo from MotivateHopeStrength on Facebook:
Sounds like I need a little discipline, OK a lot of discipline in my life. So thank you, Jen for being inspiring and I think as soon as Jeff gets home, I’ll have to tell him I’m going for a run… I really don’t want to, I mean really, really, really don’t want to, but I also really, really, really don’t want to be overweight… which don’t I want more?
