Skip to My Lou

I didn't run this morning.

The alarm went off and I looked at it and realized I wanted to sleep a whole lot more than I wanted to run.

I'm disappointed in myself. But, at the same time, I needed the sleep so I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I didn't run this morning and that is OK. I will run tomorrow and I will run on Sunday.

I avoided eating McDonald's for breakfast this morning. That's a point in the "Go Meg" category. I'll take it! I know fast food is terrible. I know it's not good for me. I know it is made up of the worst of the worst chemicals and food products. But, still, I can hear it's siren's song. Ugh. I can do it.

My plan is to get in a workout tonight once the boys go to bed. I finally cleaned out our basement last weekend so I've got a nice workout space. I figure I can go down there with some weights, the DVR full of "Doctor Who" episodes and make something happen. Wish me luck!

I've been thinking about cross training lately. I used to swim in high school and I loved it. I really feel the urge to get back in the pool coming on strong. Of course, that would mean I'd need a gym membership. I'm anti L.A. Fitness. I don't know about your area, but the one closest to me is full of tiny, trendy women in Lulemon pants and sports bras. Not my bag. There's a YMCA that's close and I could see doing that a couple of nights a week. Just have to factor in the cost with our budget and see what happens.

The beauty of running is, amongst other things, it is so cheap!

  1. Super true about running being cheap! For that matter, a lot of workouts can be done in the house and it costs nothing.

    Sometimes it's better to catch up on sleep. I know I once almost tripped because I was running less focused than normal!
