Default NSV! (workout!)

So I felt a little nervous about today because I have plans to go out with friends tonight for beer and bar food. Danger danger! I figured out what I'm going to eat, and put in my daily plate. I've been under my calories all week, so although I saw I'd be over by about 100 calories for the day, I was okay with it.

But still--I knew that I should do something else related to physical activity beforehand. Yesterday, I went for a long walk, and I decided that today I'd put in extra workout minutes as well, more than yesterday. I normally do 30-40 minutes a day, so I wanted to do more than that.

Usually when I set a workout goal like that for myself, I make up some excuse not to go through with it (well, I was under my calories all week, so I don't need to workout longer, etc). But today, I did it!

I did a yoga show from TV (good workout, I'm totally going to do it again!) that was about 23 minutes, and then I walked for 50 minutes. It's not even 1:30 yet today, plus, I'll be walking to and from the bar, which is about 10 minutes away. Yes yes yes!

Way to go. You are balancing out what you need to do with what you want to do. Great job!
