I had a melt down last night. I planned my workout. I grabbed everything I needed for it. I even blogged about it. But it didn't happen. I was late leaving work, had errands to run that took FAR too long and then my brother wouldn't stop calling me. By the time I got to the gym, every machine was taken and I was starving. I forgot a towel, headphones and the iPod that I charged and loaded during the day. I bought an apple while we ran errands to fend off dinner for a bit, but it wasn't enough. After seeing the gym packed, I went home and cried. How could so much have gone so wrong??

I refused to let the night go to waste though. So we grabbed some moving boxes from the recycling area and packed 6 boxes. We also went through ALL of Amanda's stuffies and sorted what is to be sold or donated and bagged up 2 blue bags of ones she couldn't part with. Those will go into storage when we move.

Tonight I was supposed to walk with my friend while Amanda was at youth. But my landlady texted me to say she's showing my place at lunch tomorrow. I'm glad I got so much done last night now. Packing is going great but the house is untidy from it so I'll need tonight to clean up and organize so it's show ready for her. At least I'll be busy and burning calories doing something, even if it isn't what I planned.

    Yes, you are very busy and ALL activity is important. I've actually seen studies about how the healthiest, longest living people don't actually "exercise" the way we think of it, but they are just super active on a daily basis.... lots of walking, gardening, biking, going up & down stairs, etc. Don't beat yourself up about missing a scheduled workout if you are active doing something else instead. Only get tough with yourself if you miss a workout to sit on the couch instead!
