I came home today just SPENT (my job's physically demanding & I'm on my feet all day). I got part of my breakfast & lunch ready for tmr at work (I eat my 2 meals there) as in frozen veggies and a salmon patty for lunch.
I couldn't cook an egg-white omelet for tmr's breakfast as I finished up storing the frozen veggies for breakfast/lunch tmr since the kitchen was busy with other family members then.
So, since I didn't have a choice, I went and napped for close to an hr and still felt "night of the living dead" when I woke up. (As in "no way am I rising from slumber for the rest of tonight!
I thought, there's no friggin' way I can walk on the treadmill & cook my omelet for tmr and not drop before evening chores are done before bedtime.
My simple idea to motivate myself to get onto the dang treadmill? (*I started going on the treadmill 2 days ago when ice/snow weather conditions forced me to stop walking several miles outside after work). I simply told myself, well instead of a level 5 incline, go to a level 4 incline. MPH? Go down from 3.6 to 3.4 mph. Because if that was the only way I'd exercise tonight at a lower level, then so be it
I did it! Had a new book from the library called "food & loathing" by Betsy Lerner and got thru the first 50 pages (admittedly with checking the exercise clock every 5 minutes or so, lol
hey nobody's perfect here!) before my thirty minute walk (not counting warm up/cool down) was over.
I then was able to nuke my grilled chicken/asparagus dinner in the microwave. And later finished my evening chores.
I did it!
Some days, it gets so dang hard with all the pre-holiday craziness, errands, chores, and exercise to actually G.E.T. it all done
Just oneeeeeeeeeee day at a time!
