I gave in

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I was feeling bored and stressed yesterday, so I spent the day grazing on whatever I could find. I didn't track. I didn't exercise. I laid on the couch and watched TV the ENTIRE day.

I don't know what happened. I had planned for yesterday to go so much better. I was going to get up and go to the gym, then work on a paper I have due for my grad class, then work on a project for that class. Somewhere between 7 and 7:30 yesterday morning, my motivation crashed, and by noon I was in a black hole.

I guess I was overwhelmed (and I still feel stressed, only even more now because I didn't accomplish anything yesterday). I have this paper due Monday, a major project to start working on, an interview on Monday for a position I really want, and I'm planning a surprise bridal shower for a coworker on Tuesday. Even now, I don't want to go to the gym. I'm trying to reason my way out of it by saying that I will force my husband to go for a walk with me later.

I know I need to just move on. Today is a new day, but there are going to be a lot of temptations. I just need to remember that I can do this, and I want to do this. Those are the two ideas I tend to lose track of when I'm feeling stressed out.

I can do this. I want to do this.
