ok, all of today's plans got scrapped so I had to make new plans. It would have been so easy to give up, but I didn't. I made 2 new plans and did them. I walked a vicious hill in our neighborhood, then had lunch, then spent 2.5 hours at the gym (more if you count showering time) and did new cardio things there including a rowing machine (2 sessions of 20min each) and a new program on an elliptical I've only been on once before, and the much despised mini-escalator style stair climber (hated it before, hate it now).
I also had a lot of time to think b/c I had nobody to talk to most of the day and I think it was good.
I also heard a lyric that resonated with me today - an old 311 song, Misdirected Hostility, and it says, "all this angst sh!t is just cheesy." I laughed b/c I think sometimes I get mired in my own angst, and I just need to remember it's cheesy!
Ok, another sweaty day tomorrow! Long workout with trainer, lunch, cardio, dinner, fencing class (first time ever!). I think my sculling lesson will have to be moved to next week, because of the hike that got scrapped today we're trying again on the the day I was going to have the sculling lesson. And it's easier to move that than find a hiking buddy, so...this whole week, so well planned out, has been changed and changed and changed again. Which also made me realize earlier today that if I'm short on time, I'm better off planning than logging what I did b/c having a plan with a backup plan is critical to anything happening in the first place!
