Today I tried to talk myself out of...

  • going to run club - i woke up with a nasty headache and I did NOT feel like going. I knew laying in bed would be no better. i sucked it up, took some excedrin, got my gear on and headed out the door. About 30 mins in the instructor Sam asked me how I was feeling and I actually said great.
  • going to the gym - my running schedule has left me BEAT but i know i NEED the resistance training too. Going home and vegging isn't going to solve anything and a half an hour at the gym won't kill me. The extra sweat felt good and my legs aren't thanking me right now. They'll get a rest later.
  • going out to breakfast with a friend - life happens and i CAN make good choices. I've proven it for two years to get where I am. Although I go through spurts where I let other people's opinions sway me, I won't today. I will go out and enjoy my friend's company and choose wisely because it's a BEAUTIFUL day and it shouldn't be wasted.
I think those are some victories there :)

for me:

getting on my bike for a 30min workout. I don't want to, but have no excuse. Because of you, I'll suck it up, and get on the sucker!

Haha.. its funny, I ALWAYS say that. 30 mins won't kill me. Then I do it, and I feel great!

My body is rebelling against me today.... 5 games of baseball and a total of 12k's tend to do that!

You are one tough mouse and must be commended for kicking butt even when you don't wanna! Kudo's to you!

Wow, thanks so much for posting that. I whine sometimes when I'm too sore to go to the gym and I sometimes I let it get the better of me. I can't imagine having the headaches that you get and still soldiering on.
