Another Bad Day..

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Again my plans were to go to the Y and get in an hour of Zumba and lift some weights. Oh Yeah, I got to do none of it emoticon. I worked late, picked hubby up from work, take him back to work to look for his house keys (did not find them), additional car issues, etc, etc. I did get in 10 mins of walking (I wanted to do more today).

Anyway, I will not dwell on what has happened or should I say have not happened. I am making a promise to myself. I will go to the Y tomorrow and have a vigorous and fun workout that I have missed this week.

Goodnight to another night of no real workout emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I totally understand - working long hours just doesn't give much time for exercise. Also, not much energy either. I just keep telling myself that if I can fit in a little exercise I'll feel better and have more energy to want to do more. Good luck on finding time for yourself - just remember that you are worth it emoticon

    I had a similar day--long hours at work kept me from the gym. SO I'm going to try a morning run, for a change. Hope I can make it work, but if not, I'll have tried. That's what matters--we just keep on trying!

My Day of Set backs...

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

My gym back was packed and in the trunk (ready for a great work out after work). My grocery list in my purse (last day for sale, going after workout).Took my husband to his appointment. Turned off the car and guess what? It would not start back up emoticon. I left the car where it was (caught a ride to work). I made it through my busy workday with more set backs (printer not working, constant interruptions, no supplies in closet, etc. I did not let those set backs stop me from taking a 10 min walk outside before it started emoticon emoticon. Had to get a ride home. Did not get to the "Y" nor to the emoticon store.

What this has to do with anything? I have come to a point in my life where I will not let set backs derail me. I did not let the set backs send me to emotional eating emoticon. Did not do the vigorous workout I had planned, but I did manage 10 mins of walking emoticon and a little kickboxing emoticon.

Will my husband get the car to start? I don't know? I do know I will not worry about it.

Don't sweat emoticon the small stuff or the set backs of your day emoticon

    Great blog!! It is so easy to get caught up in the moment. Especially when a string of negative events occur back to back. I'm proud of you for staying the course despite a few modifications.
