I was motivated yesterday.
I swam laps for 30 minutes at noon AND I had plans on doing water aerobics yesterday evening. Instead, I ate 8/10 of a large pepperoni pizza from Godfather’s.
The aerobics class is at 5:30, I arrived about 5:10 just as a snow squall moved through Smallburg. Apparently, the aerobics pool girl was psychic and decided that nobody in their right mind would want to dip themselves in 90 degree water and work up a sweat when it was 25 degrees with a 20 mph wind gusting the snow.
5:30 came and went. I realized I needed gas (in the car.) Pulling into the Marathon/Godfather’s Pizza Palace and Beer Cave, there is was:
Large One Topping Pizza
I ate 8 /10 of the pizza. 800 calories. By not doing water aerobics that’s at least 300 calories that didn’t get burned.
1100 calories. On a day when I could have actually burned more calories than I consumed.
There is a conspiracy. I am convinced.
I am doomed.
- To save time, work exercise into everyday activities. For example, don’t use a cart when you’re at the grocery store. Just get one item at a time, pay for it and take it to the car. Four or five hours later, you’ll be done with both your workout and your grocery shopping!
- An easy way to get in some extra walking is to run out of gas in your car.
- Remember that you’re not restricting the foods that you love forever… just for the rest of your life.
- They say that wearing too-tight clothes can keep your focused on your diet, so start wearing toddler outfits from Gymboree.
