Finding 10 minutes for myself
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Yesterday, when I did this to review my days progress and plan ahead a little, I was not in a good place. I did well with my day yesterday. I got my fitness in. I got all my water in. But I was stressed out. And that was stressing my hubby out, which upset me. He's such a happy guy - I HATE the fact my stress is affecting hom so much.
Anyhow, I was thinking about it, and that's not a good way to end that 10minutes for me. So I'm doing it again this morning.
Yesterday I did well. I need to make sure I tracked everything - I think I got side tracked and forgot to add supper, but no big deal. I believe I stayed in my calorie range. If I went over, it wasn't by much. I went for a run. It was not a successfuly completed training run, but I went running. I even had a brief moment of happy endorphins aftewards.
It was during that moment I realized just how silly I can be. I'm always singing silly little songs and dancing around the house. It makes hubby laugh. Yesterday when he was so upset, and my endorphins kicked in, I did a little song for him .. lol.
"I'm so lucky
I've got a great honey
Who loves me
Even though I stress him out
because I'm always so angry"
Just picture it. I'm over 6'1" dancing around the kitchen singing this silly little song to myself.
Hubby burst out laughing. So did I actually. I don't realize just how silly it is until he laughs.
The disturbing part is that half an hour later, I was sad again. At least I had a few moments of laughter and was able to cheer hubby up as well.
Anyhow, the plan is to run again today. I've downloaded my running trainer from the cloud onto my iPhone - my mp3 player is dead and I can't find the charging cord AGAIN! As much as I hate to use my phone as a music player - it can be so hard on the battery over time - I'll do it. Besides, I was looking at possibly upgrading my phone within the next year.
Anyhow, in a nutshell, I'm working on it.
