I got on the desk bike because I didn’t feel like running.
Seriously, I don’t have an excuse. I didn’t want to skip a workout but I didn’t want to be on the treadmill either. It wasn’t that I didn’t feel motivated or sore or overtired. I just looked at the thing and went:
Not every day is going to be perfect when you’re trying to get fit and lose weight. And it’s not like I ate poorly today or ate too much. I still keep my calories low and went for an extra walk on my lunch break (to get something to eat but I picked the bagel place further away for the extra movement). I refuse to feel guilty for taking it easy since my mental health is just as important as my physical health. If I wanna blow off the treadmill to do a workout where I can write at the same time because I enjoy it, then I’m gonna do it.
