Gee, it's crowded in here

Do you ever feel like there are so many people inside your head that you want to move out and go live somewhere quieter? Or is that just me...?

I've been doing battle with my inner whiney-pants lately. Seems she doesn't want to:

- get up early
- go out in any weather other than sunny, 25 degrees and perfectly windless
- do anything that involves getting physically uncomfortable
- do anything even slightly strenuous

She pretends it's because [my leg hurts/my neck is out of whack/my back is cranky/I'm sick] (or insert any other vaguely plausible reason), but really, she's just looking for an excuse not to train. I'm telling you, that biatch needs a good thumping.

Yes, I have been sick for the past week, but I'm on the mend now. I'm still snotty and coughing, but thankfully, the asthma has gone dormant again. As for the whole injury situation, that's gone on way too long and I'm bored and frustrated with it. But I know that avoiding exercising makes things worse, not better, so it's time to (wo)man up and get back into it.

Today I had to leave early for work, but I squeezed in some tennis ball trigger point therapy and some stretches while my oats were cooking. Then I headed out for a brisk walk before dinner. Yes, it was cold, but I did it anyway. (Take that, Little Miss Precious!)

Tomorrow morning, I plan to be at the gym when it opens to crank out a quick upper body workout and some cardio.

Time to get some consistency happening again.

There must be something going around! I'm acting much the same as you- yes I've been sick and yes there are some aches and pains and YES I know exercise will help and I'm NOT that sick any more!! But still- I make excuses and tomorrow I will be so much more committed........ when you do that slapping- please include me too!!
