Well hello sistas. It’s been another rough week for me. I’m falling off of the good eating and exercising wagon and not only do I feel mentally like crap because of the lack of endorphins, I feel guilty about doing these things, further proving to myself that I suck. That I’m a fraud, that I am full of it. (Shut the duck up! More about that in another post)
I’ve barely tried this week to stick to my points on Weight Watchers. I can’t taste anything for the most part and have only run once, thereby falling even more behind on my C25K training. The 5K is in 3-ish weeks and I am only on Week 5 of 9 in the training. I should be running right now, but I just can summons up the energy. What is happening to me? There is a voice in my head saying, “If you go running right now, you will no longer feel as though you’re sliding out of control back to your old, fatter, lazier self.” I’m not sure if that voice is louder than the “I’m-tired-and-want-to-watch-TV-and-go-to-sleep” voice or the “you’re not really a jock, you’re a wannabe!” voice.
I’ve had horrible shoulder pain this week, and I could blame that, but the self-flagellating part of me says that a real athlete wouldn’t let a little pain stop them. They would get out there, get it done and then deal with the pain later.
It’s been a great week for my blog. I have some stuff to review, including “Weight loss guru” Pete Cohen’s program, whom I was lucky enough to meet on Mamavation TV on Monday. Also, still owe you guys the review on the Aligned and Well DVDs. I’m very happy to be reviewing the Fitness Cheerleader’s new MP3 called “Walk and Tone.” So in that regard, things are good! I just don’t feel right calling myself a jock and reviewing fitness stuff if I’m sitting on my ever-widening ass.
I don’t even know how to snap out of this funk. Well, other than “just do it.” How do you keep yourself in the game and motivated especially when there is pain involved? Can you please give me some encouragement, sistahs? Thanks!!
Also, a big congrats to the Sista of the Week, Kimberly! Woohoo!
I’ll fill in about this weeks Blogging Carnival sponsor when it is announced.
