Not the most auspicious debut

Monday, October 24, 2011

I mentioned that I joined the gym on Friday. The plan was (and is) to go today as the first day and take it from there. I had toyed w/trying to go really early in the morning (which will be what I will have to do if my chosen workout partner is going to join me, as his work schedule does not allow afternoon or evening workouts), but with the morning being more of a time / schedule crunch as opposed to the afternoon and this being my first visit and probably having things to do that go along w/said first visit I decided I would go after work today. But I *did* plan on getting up in time to get something in before I had to leave for work. Maybe some yoga, maybe a little morning cardio before breakfast. Anything to jump start the week.

Maybe you can tell by the "I planned on" part that it didn't happen. In fact, instead of waking up 30 minutes before I usually do I was instead awakened by my wife saying "Honey, are you driving yourself today?" (I usually carpool, as I believe I have mentioned before). When I said "no" she said "Because it is 10 after 7".

My ride usually arrives around 7:20.

Now luckily I had showered last night, so I didn't have to just douse myself in Old Spice and pray for the best. But I did not get to do ANYTHING I had planned for the morning. The fact that I have been able to pretty much keep to my plans as far as eating and drinking water so far today has been a pleasant surprise.

And the important thing is that I am still on track. New day, new me. And I am better rested than I had planned on being emoticon

    Hey, crap happens and this certainly won't be the last time this happens.

    My mother always told me, "Life is what happens when you make other plans."

    You need to be flexible and "go with the flow". Not everything turns out the way you want it. I am still beating this into my husband's THICK skull.

    One of the things I've learned on my journey is you need to forgive yourself when you "screw up." Who says you need an exercise partner anyways? I developed an attitude that I don't care what people think of me, I am there to do my thing. I, too, was over 300 pounds when I started, and boy was I self concious. I think the strangest thing I ever did that turned a few heads was bring measuring cups to a chinese buffet! Did I get looks!! You hang in there and visit my site... emoticon
