I haven’t Yoga-d in a week. I tried on Sunday evening and ended up getting the worst case of hiccups and left halfway through (that took a LOT of “allowing myself” to quit). I’ve lost the spark in the last week to go. Usually on Tuesday evenings I am excited to wake up and go to the 6am-er. This morning, the urge to stretch limped lackluster style. My belly hurt, and instead, I biked for 10 miles.
I told myself that I would definitely go tonight, and now as the day unfurls itself headlong into afternoon sleepytime, even after a coffee treat, I hesitate. I just don’t FEEL LIKE IT. And for some reason, that bothers me. What do I do? I feel if I don’t go, it’s BEEN A WEEK!, does that mean I am lazy? Will I lose some up-dog mojo? How come the passion was there (up to 4 times a week!) and now it is just gone?
Am I lazy or do I just need a break?
Instead of yoga last night, I had my tootsies repainted with little flowers because, confession: I suck at painting nails (lack attention to important tiny details, don’t have patience to hold a steady hand). On Monday, I had to (chose to) get in just a few more minutes with that glue gun and rummage through my storage. Today, I am salivating over the thought of a bath, some wine, Boston Legal (season 2) and Trail of Crumbs (want my copy when I am done…comment here!).
Don’t google “beat yourself up over exercise” what you’ll get is little tips on how to motivate your propensity for lazy excuses into sweat pants and heart rate monitor mode. I guess this irritates me….because I don’t feel balanced and I don’t need reminders that I am avoiding something that’s good for me.
I HAVE been working out a bit more lately (I tend to use movement to cope with anxiety and boredom)…elliptical, jogging (not up to running due to PF) and biking, plus I am a walking maven.
Does this mean I need a break? Or a kick in the pants?
