After deciding to go to Whole Foods to pick up a few things for lunch instead of eating at Five Guys today I was in a rush to get home and eat again. On the train I realized that I had to work out before I could eat and I knew I needed a snack. I had a banana and an hour later I was working out.
These were all decisions I made in spite of how I felt. I really wanted Five Guys fries (they’re delicious). I really wanted to eat as soon as I got home (I didn’t have Five Guys so I was still hungry from my healthy (but not so filling) lunch. And I had no desire to work out at all. Sometimes I hate the fact that humans have to work out. (My cat never works out and at his recent vet appointment he’d slimmed down a whole pound. His whole life is about finding a nice place to lay down and looking for his next treat.)
But I’ve decided to make some life changes and it’s a day by day thing. I’ll enjoy my victory of today knowing there are many (probably much harder) battles ahead.
