This morning I did not want to get up...even though I got to sleep in until 6:00am (my husband had to work in the middle of the night and thus did not go swimming this morning). I woke up feeling tired with an achy upper jaw (two cavities filled yesterday on opposite sides of the mouth). I also still had a hint of last night's headache. Not really the best morning for feeling motivated to get fit... I applaud myself for going anyway.
I am kind of surprised that I did, it isn't something that the old Cassi would have done. I think the main thing that got my butt out the door was how I would feel later in the day. I would feel GUILTY, and I didn't want to! I did give myself a bit of a break though...I didn't go the extra quarter mile at the start of my ride this morning. I also hadn't planned on going the extra quarter mile at the end of my ride but I somehow found the motivation while riding through the park (not getting hit by a single sprinkler).
The ability to push myself is something that really makes me feel good. I can make myself do more than I ever expected I could do myself. I have to say that I was really beginning to think that the only way I would ever get in shape is if I had some fancy personal trainer to get me into shape. I have decided that while a personal trainer could probably get me into shape faster, I am capable of pushing myself. The more I push myself, the more I realize I am capable of.
