The Mind Games We Play

Clothes were set aside. Ipod was ready. In bed at a decent hour. DD cooperated by sleeping throught the night. Alarm went off. I hit snooze. Alarm went off. I hit snooze. Had this conversation with myself.

Need to get up and go for run.
But I just ran 12 hours ago, surely I can skip today.
If I skip today I have to run the next 2 days straight to meet my goal.
Well that's OK I can do that.
What if DD has rough nights.
Today is weigh in, this is like last chance workout.
But I just ran yesterday (with a whine in my voice)
Is that DD moving around?
Well if I'm going to be up I might as well be running.

So off I went. And although I had to cut it short due to stomach issues, it is done for the day and one more finished for the week.

Good for you!

I know that, for me, as soon as I get into those mental debates with myself I'm lost, so I've had to just become aware of what I was doing and get up and just act instead of think, just like you did!

That is awesome that you had those thoughts, and still decided to get up and go!
