Happy Friday. Not only is it the end of the work week, but it's my rest day. I will admit that I almost got up to run an easy 3 miles. Then I rationalized with myself. I mean really, why 3 miles? Is it going to make any difference to skip it? Nope. So I stayed in my warm bed. Sometimes I can be smart and take my own advice.
This kind of brings me to Fun for Friday. I thought it'd be fun to do a list of "sometimes." I did this a little over a year ago, appropriately titled "Sometimes." This time I thought it'd be more like sometimes I am a walking talking do as I say not as I do person. How does that happen by the way?
As a fitness trainer and running coach, I dispense advice on workouts, running, nutrition. I set out plans and prescribe rest days, intensity levels. I help clients learn about proper nutrition, healthier eating options.
But, for myself, sometimes ...
I don't want to take a rest day.
I don't want to run.
I don't want to lift weights.
I don't want to eat healthy.
I want almond M&Ms.
I run way too fast.
I don't lift heavy enough.
I eat too much pizza.
I don't back off when I feel an injury coming on.
I don't eat enough protein.
I don't take long enough rests between weight sets.
I don't do speed work.
Your turn. What are those "sometimes" moments for you?
