Ever have one of those days when you're feeling really good about yourself and then Mrs. I'm-so-much-better-than-you shows up?
Got to the gym when it opened this morning (this is not a terrific feat since my gym opens at 8h00) and who do I see? The maman of my daughter's rival, whose name is similar to her mother's: Little-miss-I'm-so-much-better
No matter what I say, her and her daughter will have outdone me and my daughter. Her daughter's ski diploma is more advanced. Her daughter's on a better, more competitive swim team than my daughter. She runs every morning while I'm (the poor sap) is working out inside of a gym. She runs triathalons while I simply do a cardio and strength workout every day. She drives a 4x4 while I drive a poorman's sedan. Today after showers she donned her pretty pink sweater and black pants - almost the exact SAME thing I was wearing! (unbelievably true!!) But her comment was about how she loves pink because she looks so good in it. I need not continue, do I?
Here's the really good news....I don't care because I'm feeling really good today about getting back on track. Had my best calorie day in a week yesterday. I look great in pink - it's my romantic color. My knee feels better than it has in 2 1/2 weeks (recuperating from ski week). I have work to do and I'm focused. Today is going to be better than yesterday and tomorrow will be better than today.
Oh, and, I'm carrying my balloons, Weezie.
