A rushed workout is still a workout right?

January 20, 2010

Do you ever have one of those days where it feels like no matter what happens you're 10 minutes behind?  That was my day for sure!  I woke up at 3 a.m. feeling like my bed was a little too big for just me & the cat.  Ok, so I was actually lonely...something that hasn't happened often since my divorce a couple of years ago but was for sure an issue last night.  With the dating "sabatical" that I'm on during my training....that's not going to change anytime soon.  The good news:  I finally curled up to a pillow & fell asleep.  The bad news:  I overslept.  More good news:  I went to the gym anyway but cut 10 minutes out of my cycling.  So it was 6.5 miles on the bike & 1.5 on the treadmill.  I thought that would help me gain the 10 minutes I lost but it didn't.  It's now almost 9 pm & I'm still chasing those 10 minutes from this morning. 

Here's the interesting part...I didn't let my crazy, fall behind day derail a workout or my eating plan.  I still ate healthy (Thank God for Special K Bars & Yoplait Smoothies that can be eaten on the run) & fit in most of my workout.  Normally my crazy life is an excuse for me to throw in the towel.  HA! I say to my old habits.  Today this was a win!  This is a day that I can say I made healthy choices for myself & feel confident I may make them for myself tomorrow too.  You can bet its going to be busy & chaotic as well.  Just a few more steps toward the finish line but even baby steps equal big gains!
