It is so funny how the mind works isn’t it? Today I woke up 30 minutes early so that I could work out before going to work. I have a WII Fit and a Zumba video, both of which are a good 30 minute workout. As a matter of fact I have been getting up 30 minutes early for the last month to work out to one of these great tools. The sad reality is that in the month that I have been getting up early I may have worked out a total of about 5 times. Each morning there comes a new excuse as to why I can’t work out. Todays excuse was that one of my dogs kept up all night, true story, and so I needed the extra sleep in order to be productive at work. Soooo, my 30 minute work out turned into a 30 minute nap. I convinced myself that this was the right thing to do and totally agreed with myself until later in the morning as I slid the 3rd or 4th pair of pants to the top of my thighs and then back on the hanger. Just as I edged out the door for work I promised myself to eat a good healthy lunch and then to walk 3 miles with a new walking group this evening. It seemed like the minute I walked into the office today my stomach began to roar. It was like it knew today was going to be a light lunch so it decided it better start protesting right away. I did eat a healthy lunch, tomato basil soup and hated every minute of it. As a matter of fact I searched my desk, purse and the entire office for a candy bar when finished. Thank goodness there are no mirrors I have to stand in front of during work and praise the Lord no reason to change my pants at work. The day is still young and I have not eaten that candy bar I longed and searched for and it is just 12:52 so I am planning on participating in the group walk this evening. Maybe I better go home and try on some pants just before its time to walk before my mind convinces me otherwise.
