Day #3 (or the day I fell off the bandwagon)

Today's workout:
One mile gentle walk from the Walk, Eat, Lose set

Please feel free to notice that it is day three and you don't see a T25 workout up there.

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.
