Here we are recapping day two of this 30 day journey !
Per usual I left work with my list ready to go. I reached the couch in my living room not long after work and what did I do? I sat down which turned into me laying down and cuddling up to the couch pillow for a nap. Now, I know what you’re thinking “Oh no! Not the nap trap again?” Well don’t worry because I had to get up so I could go to out with my beau. We ended up having a meal with friends, perfect end to the night. My problem was of course that my night could not end without that list being dealt with.
It led me to wonder …why do we choose to reward ourselves with fun before we actually do the work? My blatant disregard for the list I created was procrastination at its best. The only one who had to suffer because of this decision was me.
I know you’re probably wondering if I completed the list and more importantly did I make it to the gym?
YES! Yes I did!!! *and the crowd goes wild*
I used the Nike+ app to create a four-week program to follow and got right to work. The workout was tough but I got through it the best I could at 11pm at night. There were schedule changes that allowed for me to move some of the things on my list to another day. The tasks that I couldn’t move I just had to complete once I left the gym.
Am I tired this morning? Why yes, yes I am. Am I happy that I pushed myself to do more than I normally would? Yes 🙂 , yes I am.What have you pushed yourself to do lately? Just when you felt you had no energy left did you push through?
