“Free” Time

This will be a short post tonight. I just had to make a quick observation that I found pretty amusing.

You see, I’ve gotten into a habit of splitting my physical activity between some combination of morning, lunch, and evening workouts. In most cases I’ve been doing some activity during 2 out of the 3 options. Today, however, I decided against the second round.

I worked out this morning and came home prepared to do a second, but my plans changed upon arriving home. I had a somewhat frustrating afternoon and came home with to-do list items swirling through my brain. The very idea of working out in addition to completing those items was stressing me out. Since I’ve been doing well with my workouts lately, I decided to opt for sanity instead.

Now I’m laughing at myself because it took very little time to complete my to-do’s. After they were done I should have been reveling in the free time I had. Usually, when I’m not in weight loss mode, my free time is an excuse for why I can’t workout. I cherish that time so much that I don’t want to give up a minute of it!

Tonight, though, it was different. Instead of enjoying my free time I found myself staring at the clock, desperately trying to think of something to do. I felt restless and antsy and really wanted to expend some energy. It’s too late to do anything now, but a big part of me enjoys that I missed my workout that much.

Maybe some real changes are starting to happen!
