Today (Friday), I really didn’t want to exercise. I slept horribly last night. Went to bed at an OK time for me (about 2 AM), but I didn’t get to sleep until after 6 AM! I slept late, but only got about 4 hours of sleep waking up a couple of times. So, I was exhausted. And, I really didn’t want to exercise. I was at 110 minutes for the week and this was the last day of my week. So, if I was going to meet my goal of 150 minutes a week, then today was my last shot at it.
So, I was reading about 6 PM and just suddenly got up and put on my heart rate monitor and hopped on the treadmill. I really didn’t want to do it for 40 minutes and about 15 minutes in I was thinking I would stop at 20 minutes. But, then at 20 minutes I knew I was only 20 minutes away from making my 150 minutes for the week, so I just kept going. Finally, it was over and I had done the whole 40 minutes.
I was happy afterwards that I had gone ahead and done it even though I was so tired. I wasn’t actually any more tired after I was finished so I thought it worked out fine.
I’ve had a really good week and Friday morning my weight was down. Of course, that was true the last time I weighed in and then I was up half a pound on Saturday morning. So, we’ll see.
