Tired but Happy....

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Today I waited to workout until after work. I usually work 12 hours but today I left early. The day wasn't busy and yet when I got home exercising was the last thing on my brain.

So what did I do? I ate a cookie. Yes, I said cookie, just one - drank some water and thought about all the reasons I should exercise.

After about 15 minutes of self negotiation, I got going. I only did 42 minutes but I gave it my best, and burned 428 calories for my effort.

So now I'm dead tired, but happy. I'm finally learning how to self-discipline, sad that it took me 40 years to get here. But I'm here none the less.

The journey has been long and I'm tired but happy.....

    Having a cookie is great! I'll bet you enjoyed it too! I find I'm enjoying one cookie a lot more than I used to enjoy 6 cookies and the guilt that came after eating them! Great job! I have a feeling you're going to do this!

    Hey Kimmy,

    One Cookie will not kill you I had 2 Fresh & Easy oatmeal cranberry cookie's yesterday, I don't feel guilty at all lol. At least you got your work out in. The most important thing that you are find your groove & keep it moving...

    Keep it up the good work. I'm cheering for you!

    That is excellent! The negotiations are always the hardest part, but it is so much better after working out. You did it and healthy habits won, great job!

    emoticon for getting ur workout in. One cookie wont kill ya and u did the right thing by just eating one.

    Keep up all your hard work. Sometimes I rather be tired and say I worked out, than be well rested and dissappointed in myself.

    Good for you talking yourself into working out. I find I have to do the same thing when it gets late and all I really want to do is sit on the couch and watch tv. What I have come to learn though is that even if I only get in 30 minutes, I feel so good - physically and emotionally. Now that I've been at the daily exercise routine for about two months I find that the nightly argument with myself isn't as long and I actually look forward to working out. And as far as the cookie goes, it was one cookie, and this isn't a "diet", it's a lifestyle, and I don't know about you, but a life without any cookies at all wouldn't be much of a life! Way to go!

    Yay! Good for you! One cookie is awesome, and convincing yourself to work out, even when it was the last thing you felt like doing, is terrific. It took me 45 years to learn self-discipline, so you have me beat! Keep on making those good choices, and you'll meet your goals before you know it.
