I was going to take a walk, but...

           The past few days have been really nice! The sun was shining, it was warmer, and I was full of energy. Yesterday I had some extra time in the afternoon and I wanted to go to the local Reserve/Dam and take a walk. We’ve had a lot of snow, followed by a lot of rain, followed by a lot of flooding. I wanted to go walk around down there and see how high the water was. I figured I would just go walk around for about an hour and kill some of my extra time in the sunshine.

            Thinking about it was as far as I got! Wednesday’s are off days from the gym so I figured taking a walk would be a nice activity to get me through until today’s workout. Well, I got home and I was just going to change my shoes and head right back out.

            Then I saw the mail and started reading a letter. That only took a minute, but after that I thought about something else I wanted to do that would only take a minute, then something else, then something else, and so on and so forth. The next thing I knew I was laying on the couch and covering myself with a blanket!

            I have no clue how I even ended up laying on the couch! I looked out the window and saw the sun shining, but I was so warm and cozy on the couch! My laziness took over and I knew it was a losing battle. I let a nice afternoon pass me by for a nap on the couch!

            I’m not going to lie, the nap was amazing. I even justified the nap by telling myself that the nice warm afternoons were just beginning. I told myself I would have plenty of afternoons to take a walk. I know I should have been more motivated, and it’s not like I skipped the gym. I would never skip the gym because I wanted a nap. Honestly; skipping the gym is not an option. I just wish I would have been a little more like that about my walk yesterday!


  1. I know what you mean. I always work out in the mornings and then i plan to do some extra stuff in the evenings...but I somehow ALWAYS get sidetracked! But, you're right..there will be more pretty days ahead:)

  2. If Weds are your normal off day, dont be upset!! At least the thought crossed your mind!! Think about when you started, do you think that thought would have even crossed your mind?? Its okay to take a day off. And like you said, warmer days are right around the corner... then we will give ya hell for not taking advantage of them ;)

  3. I keep meaning to get out the door today, our last nice day for a while. But here I am instead:(

  4. I'm sorry to say but most of my intentions end up laying on the couch... lol

  5. I hate to see a good nap go to waste because you didn't enjoy having it! ;) I know you're a little disappointed about it but a cozy nap on the couch sounds amazing! Walking was about seizing the day and you seized the day in a different way, I don't think you should feel bad about that. Like you said, you wouldn't skip the gym for a nap so as long as you keep that up you're set.
