The Uninspired, Guilty Mind

Hi!  I really meant to post something last night.  I really wanted to but just couldn't come up with anything I wanted to write about.  I think it's because I have not been eating nutritious things and I have not been working out either and I didn't want to tattle on myself :(

I started this blog as a way to keep myself accountable in my pursuit of a healthier lifestyle so I could be a better example for my daughter.  Ommission was not part of that plan.  So here it goes:

I have not worked out since last Friday.  I realize that it has only been four days but I really think it's affecting me mentally.  First of all, I'm tired, like ridiculously tired.  All I want to do is sleep.  Second of all, I want to eat and eat and eat some more.  Third of all, my mood is a little (or a lot, depending on who you talked to) poopy.

So I have now learned that exercise is my "drug" of choice.  In the absence of my "drug", I get cranky and attempt to self-medicate with food.  I gorged myself on roast beef and gravy last night.  It was super yummy but the feeling of poopiness has remained. 

The good news is that I have a session scheduled with Patrice tonight :)  I couldn't be happier about receiving a butt-kicking!  I really hope this will elevate my mood and reinspire me to get up at 4am to get my workouts done.

What's your "drug" of choice?



  1. Have a great workout tonight! You aren't alone. I have learned that without exercise, I am really miserable and depressed. It's a fact of my life. I wish I had learned back in college that exercise really is the magic pill for almost everyting!

  2. Wake at 4am?! That is truly, truly impressive.

    If exercise is your drug of choice, you are my hero, girlfriend. I can honestly say that wine and the Real Housewives franchise is mine, lol ;)

  3. I'm pretty addicted to running. Nothing else really does it for me like running. Especially running for hours :)


I love, love, love comments :) Let me know what you think!
