back from redneckland.....
I felt like crap today....I didn't want to go to the gym, i didn't want to eat right, I didn't want to 'miss' pedestrians crossing the street.
I was in a baaad mood. I don't know why.
The only thought that got me through besides "weigh-in is on Sunday" Was
Every day counts.....even today.
I know how we in fatsillvania like to tell ourselves that we will start tomorrow. We will just 'take a day off'. Tomorrow never comes and today turns into weeks, months and years.
So, IF i managed to scarf down 5000 calories...it counts.
If I keep my calories under 1600, (which I did).
It all adds up.
If I skip my work out and do four days instead of six...thats 1000 calories I DIDN"T BURN.
If I workout even though my head is pounding and I want to kick the next skinny witch I see in the back of the head for no good reason because I am in pain, I don't want to be here, I don't want to do this workout...why do I spend hours and hours and hours and hours here.....
The calories I burnt in that craptastic workout that I really, really, really didn't want to do...
I burned 525 calories I would not have burned if I had sat at home feeling guilty and then you would have seen this headline instead...
I blew it...I didn't workout today.
Except that I did, and it counts.
So if you wake up tomorrow and think, "If I have to eat one more lowfat yougurt, or explain my weight loss strategy one more time...someone is going to lose a limb"...
but you eat your yogurt anyway....you explain why it's important to some clueless nob again anyway...It all counts.
So, for those of you who got up today and slogged through...even though you didn't want to...
Your one day closer to where you want to be, you did it. Good job.
