Monday Exercise and Eats

by Joanne on February 9, 2009

Why do I get up before 4AM just to go downstairs to run on a boring treadmill, watch depressing news, and lift weights?  These are my initial thoughts as I wander into the bathroom after the alarm goes off.  During the course of the next 15 minutes, I’m trying to justify the question.  I give myself ways out such as 1. just go downstairs and get on the elliptical. 2. only run a mile today and then walk.  3.  don’t lift any heavy weights. keep it simple.   When I get into our gym, without thought I switch the treadmill on, see if the FoodNetwork has anything on besides infomercials, switch to the news, get on the treadmill and begin my run.  Sometimes it gets easier as I run, sometimes it doesn’t.  The result and the message:  JUST DO IT!
