Yesterday is Past

Yesterday, I could not convince myself to move.
Work was ok, didn't feel quite right all day and my back hurt. I went home and took a bath because I really wanted to. Of course I forgot that my tub makes me feel like a beached Whale when ever I try to take a bath. The tub is not deep and the overflow drain is really low in the tub. I can not even get my whole head under the water (without major work and really embarrassing positions), much less my whole body (or even the majority of it). I am convinced that no one over the age of 5 could possibly enjoy a good bath in that thing.
I tried to convince myself to go out and take a walk. I always feel better after a walk, right? The cold and on and off sometimes freezing rain kept me in doors. I thought about doing an exercise video (a short one) but there was no room in the room where that is set up. I thought about just putting on music and dancing. Cat chewed through the speaker wires and my Ipod refused to play anything (I hit play, nothing happened but everything else on the Ipod worked. I mean really?) I looked at my goal tracker and saw my streak of at least 10 minutes of exercise a day. I had been doing good all week, over a week and a 1/2 of something every day. the idea of loosing my streak depressed me. And yet I was still sitting on my butt. Nothing worked. I lost my streak.
And today is a new day. I am starting over (kinda). A new exercise streak will be started and it will go longer then the last one. I still ate well and stayed in my calorie range. I still moved forward, even if I did not go as far as I wished. At least I did not go backwards. There is hope.
