Today I will be away from home from 7:30 AM until I don’t know when. Since my dad is picking me up at 7:30 this morning, I didn’t get a workout in. To do so and still be able to get myself showered and presentable, I would have been up before the sun – ON A SATURDAY. Not okay in my book.
Even though I knew I wasn’t going to be able to workout this morning, I am feeling a little guilty. I didn’t workout yesterday, either, and am feeling a little exercise guilt. Ever happen to you? Yesterday my day got away from me when a quick trip to Costco turned into lunch and Produce Heaven with my brother. But I would say quality time with family is MUCH more important than a swim in the pool at the gym, right?
I think I am feeling extra guilty this week since I was on vacation for 4 days last weekend and have only had two workouts this week other than walking the dog. Those workouts have both been great, though!
Tomorrow I am planning to do a 10k time trial like I did for my 25 mile bike ride. I am trying to look at things with glass half full mentality and think about how rested I will be for my 10k tomorrow. I have a tendency to beat myself up over slip ups in my workouts and nutrition. I always remind myself that you can’t go back in time and change things and the only thing you can do is do better tomorrow.
How do you deal with exercise or nutrition guilt?
