I am feeling a little tired this morning, woke up a bit congested wondering if a cold was coming on. Went to mention that in my facebook status then ‘cut’, it as I don’t like being negative. It would be time enough to mention it if I was really down. Threw it into this blog as part of my expressing how, I also have days when 'I don't feel like making the effort'. That's normal for all of us to feel that way.
I like to have a plan in place to fall back on, when I can't be bothered to exercise.
My plan is, to 'JUST DO IT'.
So here I am, having one of those mornings, when I know if I was to weigh myself the scales, would swear at me, due to two days of less activity due to driving, than normal, this week, plus I ate 'social food', due to visiting and I might add totally enjoyed the experience.
Eating Gem's home grown and cooked, Queensland country kitchen food, was a treat I would not have missed out on. There are, times when 'enjoyment' becomes a big part of my concept of healthy eating and the two, Gem's scones and jam, I ate, were 'not to be missed', experiences :-).
I know that today needs to be an active day, with a focus, on healthy portion controlled eating. I am feeling a bit 'groggy' after two long days of touring in the last 3 days, but I intend to make an effort this morning and go for a swim, and freshen myself up. I think you do feel good after you have done exercise :-).
It's all too easy to say, 'I can't be bothered, no time, too tired'.
I let myself get away with that for far too long, till the excuses lead into being, 'too ill', as the lifestyle diseases set in, and 'too much pain', due to arthritis and injury aggravated by obesity set in. I rejoice that I made a 'come back', from having let myself go that far and know better than most people where the 'I can't be bothered' or 'I'm too busy or tired', coupled with eating portion sizes designed for a manual laborer, can lead to.
These days I am too smart to listen to excuses. I LOVE my fit body and I will LOVE my swim, perhaps not before, I have it, but I am already in my bather, the commitment is made, I do not wait until I am ‘motivated, or 'inspired’ to exercise, I ‘JUST DO IT!’ and oh do I ever feel better and enjoy life, more, because of this .
Thank you Gem I had a WONDERFUL visit to your home and garden. I loved meeting you again and meeting some of your family. The home grown and made pumpkin scones with home grown and made rosella jam were a treat, the home grown and harvested banana's you gave us to eat on the way home were the sweetest I have tasted, and the eggs from your (girls), hens, even more delicious for last nights fast food, meal when we got home, after having met 'the girls' and shared in your harvesting them :-).
It was a wonderful day. Thank you Gem.
Now time for my swim.
