I am not proud, but I am also not beating myself up. I had an exhausting, stressful day. I honestly was considering skipping the walk this morning, but I thought it would make me feel better, and it did. But I think T25 would have destroyed me. I was ten minutes late to work this morning because of a cement truck that decided it could only go about 3 MPH. Perfect. It took me 12 minutes to drive what should take me about a minute and a half. Then there was traffic in the parking lot and trouble with the bus... work itself was not stressful, but it is tough to recover from a rushed, panicked morning.
I had also forgotten that I had an extra long shift today, so I didn't get home until about 5:30. Then I needed to run errands and pay bills... then I was a bit hungry so I made myself a snack... then I wanted to relax a little after my long day... and then before I knew it, it was 8:30 and I was falling asleep on the couch. Yup. I am still 80 years old stuck in the body of a 26 year old. It's so sad. But in my defense, I went to a friend's birthday party last night and didn't fall asleep until about 1 am, so when the alarm went off at 5 am, it wasn't pretty. If I had remembered that I had a nine hour day ahead, I may have just turned it off and kept sleeping.
Regardless, today ended up being a one mile walk day. I did walk plenty during the day - my Fitbit says I've walked about 6.5 miles today. And since I did my one mile walk and I tracked my whole day, I am not going to beat myself up about skipping T25. Honestly, I think doing it on 4 hours of sleep after a stressful day would have been dumb. Today was supposed to be Total Body Circuit, which I think is the hardest one of the workouts in the Alpha phase. I find it pretty intimidating. Not perfect for when you're exhausted!
I guess this means I have a fourth goal for the month of October - work on not beating myself up. I'm choosing to work on that one today and leave Shaun T for tomorrow.
