I just could not go out the door today. I've been feeling fatigued since last Wednesday, and I just could not make exercise happen this morning. I woke up and got ready, but I just didn't have the energy to go out the door. So, I got back in the bed. There is no time today for an afternoon or lunch workout, so today will be completely off. I haven't taken a day completely off (no weights or running) in almost a month now, so I suppose I'm due.
On a side note... I saw this article on Yahoo! today. Alabama is second to Mississippi in adult obesity. I don't want to be too preachy here, but obesity is preventable. The best quote from the article is this: "There isn't a magic bullet. We don't have a pill for it." I think that's exactly what I've been saying all along. Exercise and eat healthier. It really is that simple and that hard.
You don't have to run a crazy 40-60 miles per week like I do. But you will notice a drastic difference in the way you look and feel if you will consistently do 30-45 minutes of exercise 3 days per week. Do you realize that is only 1.5 - 2.5 hours per week? Most people waste much more time than that in a week watching a TV show they're not even remotely interested in.
