I know this is no surprise to anyone. I also understand this isnít a big deal to most people and they are just looking to have fun with as many people as they can or whatever.
So the big St. Pattyís Day Parade is tomorrow. I get a text from a friend, do you have plans tomorrow? Letís go to the parade. My response was basically, I have been getting into better shape, I have lost 45 pounds and I have been targeting tomorrow to start the spinning class at the gym.
Their response back, you can spin anytime! The parade only happens once a year. My reply was short, I have been working to get in better shape so I can give the spinning class a good start and not die half way through it.
Their response. I went spinning this morning. Since you havenít started you can postpone it a week! Come to watch the parade!
Ugh. I know they want to have fun and go out. Normally I would have jumped on it. But right now, I am focused and doing very well. I also know me. I am still liable to make an excuse and not go. It is an early class and while I am usually up, I am not the most motivated in the morning. Till I am actually on that bike it is a 50 Ė 50 proposition on whether I actually go or not. I know I should. I know I need to. I know it will help me get better prepared for the nicer weather when I can actually be on my real bike. But I can still make enough excuses for myself. I really donít need someone else trying to push me into blowing it off.
Guess the fact that they barely commented on the 45 pound loss kind of ticked me too. It may not be important to them, but it is to me.
Or maybe I am a grump today. But I seem to have less patience for people who irritate me. lol Not to mention I have never enjoyed parades much. :)
