Wednesday Workout

In April, I was running a lot.  Here I am marking my mileage at the race.
I did it again, I went almost a whole month without posting.  So lame; I guess some of those mountains still have not been conquered.  Here's another mountain I can't seem to conquer...regular workouts.  Since I ran my Ragnar Relay Race back in April, I have gained almost 25 pounds.  I have two pair of pants that fit and I hate one of them.  I feel like a blob too.  I carry most of it in my stomach so I've done a lot of sucking it in lately, but it is driving me crazy.

There are these stupid nagging thoughts when I'm in a situation such as this, and it messes with my brain so much, you can't even believe it.  And here is one: If I can't exercise, who cares what I eat?  I hate it when I think like that.  I've been eating a lot lately; crappy food too.

I broke my toe several weeks ago and my toe/foot have been miserable since so I am unable to run.  I have gone to the gym several times with Jana because I can ride the bike or use the elliptical.  Problem there is that I can't get to the gym consistently enough to see the value in the few times I have gone.  Here is another one of those nagging thoughts:  If I can't go every day, or at least 5-6 times, then the 2-3 times is pointless.  Stupid, right?  So, I stopped going to the gym and kept on eating.

I'm taking control again starting Tuesday.  Don't ask me why Tuesday, it is part of the stupid game my brain plays.  But I'm done making excuses, I can tell you that.

I'm curious, what are your excuses for not exercising?
