Not a total FAIL :P

So, I had planned to get up and do Chest and Back... so I set the alarm for 5am and went to sleep. The alarm went off like 10 minutes after I went to sleep so I turned it off the second it went off. I then fell back to sleep and only woke up again at 5:30... so I laid there for a second thinking... I blew it. But then I thought that I could do something instead of feeling bad about doing nothing ... so I dragged my ass out of bed, washed up a little, pulled my hair back in a ponytail and went downstairs and hopped on the treadmill. I warmed up at 3.9MPH for five minutes and then I wanted to see how fast I could run my mile as I have a goal of a 10 minute mile. What I hadn't factored in is the fact that I have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING over the past month and that was going to have an impact on my time. So I huffed and I puffed... then I slowed down for a bit, then I huffed and I puffed again then I started to cool down after my 12 minute and 22 second mile :P I suck!! I will get the 10 minute mile in before the end of the second week of working out... and I would put money on it.

Since I felt so good after doing my 20 minute treadmill program this morning I know that I have a renewed sense of myself... I WILL get up tomorrow morning at 5 and I will commit to not shutting of the darn alarm until my legs are out from under the covers. That is my commitment to me!

Following the lil run and my shower I got supper going in the crock pot and threw in a load of laundry. Then I vacuumed the floor downstairs... I felt like I could do anything! What a great feeling.

Make it a great day!

Oh, I almost forgot... I burned 291 calories this morning :D

Hey, you did eventually get up and made the most of it. You got a lot done this morning girl! :)

I know how you feel though, I'm right there with you. Just got all excited to really push hard and got slammed with a ton of work so no time. But after tomorrow, all bets are off.

Good luck with that 10 minute mile. I'm sure you will get there.

Good for YOU!
You got up and got moving..that is what counts and you had a nice calorie burn there!
Have yourself a great day :)

Even though you didn't quite make your wake up time, you still got up and did it! I admire people with that kind of drive. 530 is still the middle of the night in my books! :)

Thanks for the blog visit. Have yourself a great day :)

This is great! I wish you the best with the 5am workouts. I don't personally have the willpower...but you go girl! I'm cheering for you!

Laura said...

Hi honey! Glad you got up and did something! I am right there with you in just laying there once my alarm goes off... I hope the warmer weather kicks us back into high gear!

And I'm sure you'll be running 10 minute miles in no time!

Sounds like you're doing great. We can't get too caught up in the little things with our workouts and diets...we just have to do the best we can each day.
