Hi friends – happy Hump Daaaaaaaay to you! (mike mike mike)
There’s always at least one night per week that I don’t feel like cooking dinner, and last night was it. We typically order something or have a “fend-for-yourself” meal (which usually means avocado toast for me and frozen pizza for Bobby).
Welp, this happened instead.
And I’d been lyin’ to you if I said it wasn’t delicious.
Dinner was followed by this + about 15 Bit-O-Honeys.
I will never be “perfect” 100% of the time when it comes to eating a healthy diet, and I’m okay with that. I am learning that the 80/20 rule is how I want to live my life for the rest of my life, and feeling “guilty” for eating mac-and-cheese and candy every once in a while is just redonkulous.
BREAKFAST & WORKOUT
When I woke up this morning, I did not feel like working out; I slept poorly, had a headache and was full of congestion. Exercise just didn’t sound like fun. So, I ate my breakfast (baked egg muffins + ketchup) and worked on my computer through the morning.
Around 10 a.m., I threw on my workout clothes and headed downstairs to the gym. I told myself that I could quit halfway through if I really didn’t want to finish. This is my “don’t make me do this” face.
I actually really liked this one! It went by so fast because the intervals are shorter – gotta love that. I followed up my cardio with this BeFIT Yoga video.
Though it was tough to find that motivation today, I am so glad I did!
The ratio of me wanting to workout versus not wanting to is probably 50:50. I wish I could be that person who intrinsically wants to exercise seven days a week, but I don’t think that will ever be me.
What helps me get off my butt is to think about:
- How great is feels to work my heart muscle
- Feeling and looking good in my skin
- The importance of exercise to my mental health
What motivates you to get to that group exercise class or go on a long run?
