Yeah. I Totally Rocked This Week.


Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Yesterday I met with Yoda. He looked over my food/workout diary and was quite impressed although he says that maybe I shouldn't have Subway so much.

Whoops.

So, we moved on to lifting weights and I was doing well when he started to tease me. It was about something stupid. He was giving me a hard time about whiny text messages (I tend to complain about my diet and my shoulder a lot) and he started going through and reading them in a super-annoying voice which is not how I meant them.

I totally got upset and in order to keep myself from crying, I started lifting those weights like nobody's business.

He felt bad as soon as he realized I was upset. He apologized and said he was just teasing me and that he'd skipped over all the non-whiny messages and that he didn't mean it and that he thought I'd laugh.

Then he paused to watch me and said that he now knew what the secret was to getting me to work harder - making me upset. I had lifted with a faster pace and hadn't been grimacing quite as much.

This changed my mood and made me laugh because I had to remind him of something.

You see, there is a fine line - a VERY fine line - between me being upset and me bursting into tears and sobbing for an hour. I was cursed with being super-emotional. He's had to deal with this more than once. The reason I had worked harder was to keep the tears from falling.

He conceded and decided that maybe he shouldn't upset me.

Also, he felt really badly.

I swear that he's more like a little brother to me than my actual little brothers are sometimes! I wouldn't have been surprised if he had tugged my hair and called me a brat or something. ;)

Then I realized something. I only had my feelings hurt because I worried about annoying him. I trust Yoda more than I trust anyone. I have to - he pretty much knows everything about me. But he wasn't upset at all and was just reminding me that even though I struggled with my diet this week and I struggled with an injury, I still kicked some diet and workout behind.

You know what else we realized? My shoulder didn't hurt at all. Not even a little bit. But I still made Yoda's day when I said that I had decided to only go to Zumba once a week. I think he's afraid that I'm still overworking it.

    I'm glad you scaled back on the Zumba. :)

Maybe Yoda should print up paper "masks" of things/people that annoy you so when he thinks you're slacking on the weights (not that you would, of course) he can hold one up and motivate you to push harder. ;)
