Finding My Groove

It amazes me how quickly I fell out of the habit of working out and eating to fuel my workouts.  I’m truly struggling to get back to a regular training schedule.

Last night, I had a 45 minute bike ride scheduled.  (On the trainer, not outside.  That would be crazy.  And also probably life threatening.)  I had been fighting a headache all day and by the time I got home, I just wanted to eat some comfort food and go to bed.

Now, in previous months, I would have given the workout a shot.  I could have just taken it easy and tried.  The good part about riding the bike in the trainer is that if I’m not feeling good after five minutes, I can quit.

But I didn’t even start.  No, instead I ate a bagel for dinner and went to bed early.  I don’t even want to think about how many calories I ate yesterday.  My diet’s not perfect, but if I’m going to splurge on calories, I should be doing it on cake and margaritas, not random junk I’m eating as comfort food.

Of course, I wasn’t feeling great, so resting is never a bad plan, but I don’t like how easily I gave up on the evening’s plans.

Tonight, I have swim practice.  This is always a struggle because it’s not til 8pm.  Last night, I was in bed before 8pm.  But I have to go.  No matter how much I do not want to put on a bathing suit, no matter how much I don’t want to go out in the cold.  I need to be there.  I just signed up for another triathlon for the summer.  I must swim.
