The best laid plans...


Thursday, February 07, 2013

...are sometimes thwarted by a giant mountain of sticky blue foam. I have no idea what caused Toothpaste Vesuvius to erupt, but when I woke up yesterday the bathroom counter was a minty fresh Pompeii. So instead of getting to squeeze in a quick workout before heading to work, I was cleaning up that mess :( Oh well, I hated that toothpaste anyway, and I finally got to throw it out because the entire can was empty.

After work, I had to do a thousand errands and so I couldn't make it to the cxworx class I had planned to go to at 5. I DID make it to the BodyCombat class, and it turns out that was quite enough for one day. I am sooo sore! I thought I was going to die just from that one class. Two in the same day? Maybe next week.

I also made some really... unfortunate food choices yesterday, so I've really got to stick with my plan for the rest of this week. I know that I should know better, but I have been weighing myself just about every day and I don't like where things are going. I know I am going to have to face the scale for better or worse next Monday morning, and I want to be prepared. So, back on the wagon. Boot camp tonight and lots of water and healthy thingses for lunch. I just need to remember I don't have to eat all the yummy things in one day. They will still be around tomorrow and probably weeks, months, or years from tomorrow.

It's the same lesson I am trying to work on financially. I don't have to buy EVERYTHING all at one time, just because I want to - whether I can or can't usually doesn't matter to me o_O But the point is, sometimes you wake up in the middle of the night and buy calendars because you have a ridiculous compulsion that makes you inable to function without them. And sometimes you have to think about whether or not you really NEED something. If yes, do you need it RIGHT NOW? Usually no, to both questions.

I am slowly coming to find the delayed gratification is better, because it makes you work for it. If you have to work for it, you actually get things done. But I guess, if you don't get everything done, or not everything goes according to plan, that's not the end of the world either. There's always tomorrow.

  Erupting toothpaste - makes me want to go back to using a tube. Wonder how many calories you burned cleaning up the mess?
