SC - motivation and commitment #2

Plan ahead...
my nemesis! I so want to master plan ahead that it knocks me off my feet because I desire it so much...

So I did a few things. I boiled some eggs. I made a casserole. OK I planned and laid out my lunch, breakfast and snacks so I should be happy. I should be proud. I don't know what I expect planning should make me feel like? I always have a 'but'...

but we decided to go swimming. loved it. so proud and happy with my accomplishments but...I didn't organize my exercise and work clothes for the morning. I was tired when I got home, I had a crazy sleep wondering if I was going to get cramps from the cold water and different exercise so didn't sleep well. So when I got up with 15 minutes to fly out the door for my 630 rendez vous with a spin bike, I realized at change room time I left home without my work shoes or my coat. I took brown pants, an orange top and a purple vest,,, OMG I felt so disorganized and a little peeved that I had to mark a 4 or less on my SC challenge rating...
Bright side... I had clothes! I had shoes albeit runners. I had food! I didn't miss my exercise class. I swam, I really swam in the pool, arms going round and round, bubbles bubbling from my mouth into the water! Wholey smokes. who the heck cares that I can't organize myself out of a wet paper bag. I did lots of things right! and hey who doesn't like orange and purple? plus I live so close to the rec hall I came home and grabbed my stuff. It was just that feeling of another planning moment foiled again!

    Had to laugh because I have done much the same thing. Several times got to water aerobics with clothes, but no towel. Drying off with those bitty brown paper towels is a challenge.

Good for you getting into the pool and swimming and for getting your meals prepped ahead of time.

Hope you slept better last night.

BTW, I think you are just ahead of the fashion game. Purple and orange could be the next hot color combination.
