I Don’t Want to Disappoint Anybody

I had a long run yesterday which probably didn’t help. And my apple snack was kind of rotten so I threw it out and was a little hungry. The back of my leg also hurt from a previous exercise.

I knew as soon as I stepped on that treadmill that it’d be a struggle. When the keys of the treadmill got stuck so that I couldn’t even slow my pace, I figured that was my sign.

I stepped off the treadmill, pulled out a book and sat on the bike for 15 minutes. But even that wasn’t working for me.

lapping the couchToday wasn’t really a success. I know that this struggle doesn’t define who I am and I know that it won’t hinder my weight loss goals and that it’s good that I did anything at all because “I’m lapping everybody on the couch,” but at the same time I want to prove myself as a leader and show the strength and conviction to follow through with my actions.

I know that it’s silly and that I should just appreciate my body for what it’s capable of, but at the same time I can’t help but wish that it were capable of working a little bit better.

  1. We all have days like that where just nothing quite works and you can’t understand why. Tomorrow will be better. Making the effort to try is half the journey.

  2. Today is a new day. Hopefully it will be better. Even just going for a walk is a good idea on days like that.

    I sometimes find that if I have a steak on days like that I feel better the next day. Not sure why but something I find will help me. Not sure if you eat meat at all but something to give a go. πŸ™‚

    Hope today is a good one. We are 4 days in yay!

    • Haha I don’t eat meat but I had a delightful tuna sandwich that really perked me up. Thanks for the support and I’m already feeling better and continuing to push myself!
