Exercise and other things

Monday night Karen came for my workout - killer - as always. I am so thankful she makes me work so hard. Tonight I promised myself that as soon as I got home - 7:30 pm - that I would change into work out clothes and do one of my exercise tapes - went upstairs to change and turned the TV on to watch while I changed - and started watching the crazy U-Haul chase in LA - finally turned it off at 8 pm - went downstairs and did the 30 min. tape - Success!!! Accomplishment!!! Now if I can just do it the next three days Karen will be so proud of me and so will I!!! I'm putting it out here so that I can report whether I do it or not.

Procrastination - it is what seeps into your life and takes over and stops accomplishment from being part of your life. It steals so much from you - especially self-respect - why can't you stop making those wrong choices - okay maybe they're not wrong - but they're not helping you accomplish your goals - and I am all about goals this year. I make lists only to have them mock me - I set alarm clocks - timers - I am an intelligent human being who wants to change and tonight was a baby step for me - and now here is the next one - I'm going to shut this down and go to bed at 11 p.m. - no matter about the list - I've done two things on it - exercised - oh three - ate dinner - and now go to bed at 11!!! If I could open up my front door and throw Procrastination out into the street I would!!!

Well done!

I haven't seen that chase, but I know the sort of thing - the kids love watching them and I just get sucked in too. How crazy are these people?

Way to go with the excercise. I find I have to force myself sometimes, but always feel so good afterwards.

Procrastination is my constant companion as well. I think the winter and emotions make me not care as much. I'm going to start making lists too. Maybe that will help.

That U haul chase was insane. I always wonder what procrastination is about. Self sabotage? Laziness? I don't know. Sometimes I stay on myself. make myself feel bad. This year I've let myself off the hook. I'll let you know if it works!!!

Good for you! You show procrastination who's boss! I leave my tv on the fitness channel all day. There are some things I can't do, or don't have the equipment for. But there are some things I can do. I just pop in and do what I can all day. lol, poor UPS man! or any unsuspecting visitors that might stop by.

Chief - I googled the chase and they got her!

Terri - I respect your running in the snow!!!

The Mrs. - I loved that I could google "U Haul Chase" and it all came up!

Hey Trainwreck - Love the idea of leaving the exercise channel up - I'm going to try that this wknd!
