Hibernation only works for bears

Grizzly bear on a rock overlooking Or so I keep telling myself. I'm feeling a bit like a grizzly at the moment. It's still too dark in the morning, I got lured outdoors yesterday by nice weather, only to end up soaked through by a stealthy rainstorm. I don't wanna do nothing but curl up in the warm bed that's calling me right now. So I'm going to fake being motivated.
  • am: 1 hour Walking
  • noon: 15 minutes Cleaning
  • pm: 15 minutes organizing

Fail. Really not feeling well. I'm going to take a couple days off. Not sure why I'm feeling so tired, but it's A Sign. One good thing about tracking my exercise like this is that I can look back and point out to my conscience that yes, I have been exercising. I'm not a slacker if I take a day off. Or even two.

Tired. It's cold and dark and it's been winter for every and ... wah.
Okay. Whine over. But I'm going to take this feeling as a sign that maybe I should take it easy today.
  • am: 15 minutes cleaning -done
  • noon: 15 minutes organizing -fail. Got distracted. It's harder to stay focused on the weekends. Need to work on this.

I am going to focus today on things that are within my control. I am not going to stress about anything that is outside of my control. Word of the day: focus.

  • p.m.: Back to my walking program! Yay!!! -done. I'm soggy, but it's done. Sadly, I don't see any improvement yet. Hopefully that was due to my having to pick my way around the occasional patch of snow or ice. But done.
