Excuses are my Excuse

Monday started my 6 Week challenge of moving everyday. I decided to try this as a way to start adding strength and (continuing) yoga into my weekly run schedules.  Also, we all know I need to focus on hitting my runs so I can run my second 1/2 marathon (still undecided which one).  

I know I need to buckle down, and hopefully drop a couple of pounds in the process. Clearly, if I am rocking my yoga and runs (ha!) at my current weight - they can only get better if I am a bit lighter... Right?!

I have been hitting my workouts for the most part (yes, I realize it is only Weds.) - until this AM.  I set my alarm for 6:00am as I knew I would not be able to workout on lunch - so I figured I would get a quick strength session and a quick run in before work.  Ya know what I did?  I laid in bed and hit snooze for the next 2 hours convincing myself that I needed a rest day after Monday and Tuesday.  And if I pushed myself too far today - I would probably end up injured. Yep... that's it folks.  

The excuses that I can come up with sometimes amaze me!  

The good news is that I can still get that session in this evening, minus the run as I have a long run scheduled tomorrow.  

Do you ever catch yourself making excuses to miss a workout/not get out of bed/completely pig out?  
-it is clearly something I need to work on.

oh i have been here, for sure!! but I know that I am not a morning person and I gave up on the dream of morning runs long ago!! It just made me feel bad about myself, and that's not what working out is for! So I do a lunch workout, and/or after work before I get home. If I'm home first, I'm toast! Can't wait to see you run your second half, you will be amazing!
