I got up this morning at 6 a.m. with every intention of doing the following: Eat breakfast, check my e-mail and Facebook, update our newspaper website and Facebook site, do some online bill paying and then, be exercising by 6:30 a.m. or so.
It is now nearly 7:30 a.m. and I have done everything but the exercising part. UGH!
Why do I do that? I do it all the time. I get up early to get all my regular morning stuff done and have plenty of time to exercise. Instead, I sit my not-as-big-as-it-once-was butt in front of the computer and do everything I can to procrastinate.
And, I watch the clock. For instance, when I got up by 6 a.m., I thought, "Okay, I will sit here until 6:30 a.m. and then go exercise." Well, 6:30 a.m. came and went and I didn’t move. Then, I thought, "Okay, I will finish this (whatever it was I was doing at the time) and then exercise at 7 a.m." Well, 7 a.m. came and went and I still didn’t get up.
Now, as I sit and look at the clock, I am thinking, "Okay, at 7:30 a.m. I will get my tush up off of this chair and go exercise."
Thankfully, I was just interrupted by my son and had a wonderful conversation with him. It is 7:29 a.m. Time to shut off the computer and go exercise. I know I will feel better. Right?
UPDATE at 9 a.m.: I finally went and worked out and yes, I feel better. Queasy, but better. I think I may have pushed a little harder than normal. Hence the queasiness. But I did it and that’s all that matters.
