Uh-oh

I missed my Sunday morning video workout because I went out for breakfast with a friend, and this morning I chose to do work instead of working out (I am half self-employed so work at home a lot). This has made me feel tremendously guilty. I don’t think that’s a good thing.  I will be working until 9pm tonight and I thought I could walk home to get some activity in – except that it’s -22C (or -7.6F) here.  So, yeah, that’s not going to happen.

Ack. I don’t like this feeling guilty for not exercising thing. It’s not like I won’t workout this week – in fact I’m going tomorrow after I teach. 

Anyone else feel like this? Is this normal? Does it mean that exercising is becoming an integral part of my life or that I’m developing an unhealthy attitude to it?

  1. Oh I definitely feel you here! I skipped one of my runs last week and I felt awful about it the entire day. So instead I woke up the next day and went straight to the gym to get a workout in, even though it was my rest day.

    Do you schedule your workouts each week? I find this really helps me to beat the guilt because I know exactly when I should be working out. I’m able to schedule a rest day or two, as well, so if I do happen to miss a workout – I can make it up on that rest day.

    Either way, life does happen and sometimes workouts are missed. Just try to make it up this week!!

    • Thanks! 🙂 This is completely new territory for me. I think that’s what I’m going to do – regroup tomorrow and do a longer workout. I’ll feel better about it. I’ve never found myself in a position where I’ve worried about this – I think finding a healthy schedule is the key – so I can make up workouts when I miss them.

      I do try to schedule most of my workouts, but have started teaching this semester so that’s added a new element to my schedule.
