I feel like I’ve been cutting myself way too much slack lately. I’ve been really half assing it with all my homework, I didn’t even remember to study for my test last night, and I’ve had all kinds of excuses for it. But the fact is, I’ve just been lazy, and when my grades come in, I have a feeling those excuses are going to seem pretty weak.
It’s been the same with exercise. I’ve been skipping a lot of my morning workouts, and telling myself I was just too tired to get out of bed. I wasn’t too tired at all. My bed was just too comfy.
So on Sunday night, I told myself this week would be different. I was going to do at least one morning workout whether I liked it or not. But then I couldn’t sleep on Sunday night, so Monday was out. Tuesday I was still tired from Sunday’s sleeplessness, and yesterday I just didn’t want to get out of bed. My alarm still went off at 5am each morning, but I promptly reset it for 6 every time. I didn’t feel guilty about it either. Maybe I am a bit too easy on myself, but sleep is important and I really like it. So basically the morning workouts didn’t happen at all. There’s a shock.
So, when we got sent home directly after the half hour psych test yesterday and I found myself with two extra hours, what do you think I did with them?
I went for a run. In the heat. And like a fool, I took the non shaded route. Maybe I was making up for my laziness by doing the hardest thing possible.
By the time I made it to my parents house I was absolutely dripping, and I still had to walk all the way back home with Lexie.
My appearance on that walk home was pretty phenomenal. Soaked with sweat, makeup smeared all over my face, and dragging my dog behind me.
I can only imagine what the neighbors must think of me.
But I feel like it was a pretty good way to make up for my laziness. Now, if I could only get myself to do my damn homework, we might really have something.
