Today was day 3 in the gym and everything was stopping me from going!!!
I have to wake up at 7:15 in order to get everything done on time to leave out as soon as my daughters bus arrives at 8:45 to arrive to the gym by 9:00, to walk for an hour so I can get to work by 11. Whew, that sounds busy!!
I have to get my daughter dressed and fed. Although she is almost 18 she is physically and mentally impaired so I have to get her ready like I would a 2 yr old. And as you know, feeding and dressing a 2 yr old can be challenging. She didnt want to change her undies, so she kept playing. She wanted to dance around instead of getting dressed. Then while I was feeding her she kept laughing. Gotta love em!! Not to mention I pushed snooze a cpl times so I was running behind schedule!!. I couldn't find my ear piece and I had to fix my lunch, so I didn't leave out of the house until 5 till 9. I was so upset I thought about turning around.
Once I got to the gym, even though I didn't think I would be able to walk my full hour, I get in the locker room and realized I left my headphones in my car. How could I walk for an hour with no music!!!!!! Well, I took my towel and covered the screen and I started. I keep looking at the clock and saying "ok less than an hour to go", " ok, less that 40 mins". I said I don't want to be fat and 40!! Then a gentlemen got on the treadmill next to me and he started playing music from his phone. I was like, "Thanks I needed that!!" Turns out he forgot his headphones also. Well, that only lasted for 15 mins, but after he left I did the same thing. I only needed it for 20 mins. When I took my towel down I only had 13mins and 27 secs to go!!!! I did it!! I passed my test, I found a way to continue even though every thing was going wrong!!
Have a great day everyone!!
