Default Journey Home from Work...

... Ok so it's about 4pm.. an hour left to go until I get out of work. Sitting there thinking 'ooh I could just eat some chocolate... I'm tired I don't want to go for a run' all the while working through the last hour. Walking out of work up to the car park and getting in the car

ED (Evil denial):I could not run tonight, run in the morning instead and just go home and slob out
AD (Angel denial):No denial you said you were going to run so you're going to run
ED:But I think it's going to rain and it won't be enjoyable at all
AD:you always say that and know you feel great once your out
ED:but I want chocolate!
AD:no
ED:I mean I've only eaten around 500 cals so far...
AD:nuhuh
ED:... I could just have the tiniest dinner (weetabix at 130cals?) and that'd leave room for a WHOLE bar of chocolate!
AD:you're just annoyed that the scale isn't moving at the moment
ED:SO! Maybe a bit of chocolate will jolt my body into action!
AD:A bit of chocolate?
ED:Ok so say 200g of the stuff thats only say 1000 cals or something!
AD:No
ED:I could just drive to tesco, pick up the chocolate, smuggle it into the house and no one would ever know!
AD:You'd know
ED:yeah but others wouldn't. I could have a LOVELY relaxing evening in front of the tv, in my pjs eating chocolate and drinking tea
AD:But you know you're bored of an evening most of the time! Think of it this way the exercise will kill some time AND make you feel better!

....and so on and so forth. I got home... begrudgingly put my kit on and went for a run (just got back)

Do I feel better? YES
Did I want to go? NO

Anyone else have these daily conversations with themselves or is it just me lol

Good for you! I have those "inner" conversations too. I'm in a bit of a rut right now, so it was really helpful to read your post!

Good job!

Some days, the entire day is spent having similar conversations with myself.

That was eerily familiar....

You have been in my head. I am the queen of justification and excuses. I just have to cut them off with a firm "no"....and that usually works.

Good job on the run!

Not only do I have those conversations, but sometimes they're even out loud! LOL

I felt the exact same way today. Just couldn't muster up the 'will' to do it - - but like you, just put on my stuff and plugged away.

Funny, I've given in to the 'voices' sometimes and always wish I hadn't, but I've never, ever 'ignored' them and felt anything but good.

LOL at the 'I could just have the tiniest dinner (weetabix at 130cals?) and that'd leave room for a WHOLE bar of chocolate!' You've been listening to MY voices!!!
