The power behind a goal
May 5th, 2009 by Anna

I haven’t been particularly excited about doing exercise the last couple of days. In fact, I outright didn’t want to do it. Forced myself to do it. Said you will have a time out if you don’t get your butt up and moving! I knew it was a hollow threat but still, I thought it best to follow through.

What’s interesting to me is why I’ve forced myself. And it’s really kind of a stupid reason. It’s not because I’m trying to lose weight. It’s not because I’ll suddenly feel good about exercising once I start. It was because I set a goal in SparkPeople. I don’t even get SparkPoints for it. It’s just tracked. And I can see what my current streak is on a goal and I didn’t want to break my streak. That’s it. I didn’t want to break my streak.

So I guess whatever works, right? If those little numbers on a web page are enough to get my butt moving, then then let it be those little numbers on a web page. This is a good thing because from my history I know that if I break from working out too long, it’s way harder to get back into it. Way easier to say “maybe tomorrow” and when I’ve maybe tomorrowed enough times, I start eating poorly because what the heck, it’s not like I’m exercising either. 

Man… me and these mind games…

Forgiven. Almost.

The scale has been forgiven. Mostly.

Stupid scale. I’m so mad. For two days now I’ve done quite well, thankyouverymuch! I’ve eaten well, I’ve excerised well. And that stupid scale. I’m mad at it.
