Today I had planned to do every single activity possible. That has now changed because of the rain. Maybe I am being a baby, but I don’t want to go for an hour long walk in the rain. I hate getting wet. I hate being wet and sitting in a car for a thirty minute ride. I hate having all wet clothes I have to change before I can do anything else. I just hate the rain. (Why I ever wanted/want to move to Portland is beyond me.)
Should the weather change your workout plans? Should a little bit of rain stop you from getting some exercise? Probably not.
But does it?
In my case yes.
Instead I will lie around a bit and then hopefully talk myself into going to visit the elliptical machine on my own. I’m far less motivated to go do that but I know I need to. [Update : Turns out I was plenty motivated and did an awesome interval workout on the elliptical!]
So while I’m giving myself a the-rain-ruined-my-plans-but-I-still-need-to-workout-so-I-can-be-healthy pep talk, you go check out my post today at A Weight Lifted about self-acceptance as the first step to losing weight and becoming healthy.
Oh yeah, and leave me a comment with some motivation to get over my rain hating ways. Or tell me that you hate the weather too when it ruins all your plans.
