Thursday, met with a fitness trainer via my manager at work who was interviewing him. Like what I heard. He was willing to work with me on a limited amount of sessions. Great! Signed up for two session.
Friday, feeling good, work going well, get a call after manager leaves that her wallet has been stolen. She tells me to check mine because hers had been in our break room. Sure enough...its gone...so is all of our money. Insurance cards, other credit cards, even the social security cards of my entire household! (Why did I have all those SS Cards with me? I forgot to take them out of my wallet after Kindergarten Registration. I don't make it a practice to carry them. Awful timing...huh?)
Also, Friday, husband calls to tell me that our gas cans he just filled the day before were stolen. Two gas cans full of gas just walked off from in front of our garage in broad daylight and not one neighbor saw a thing.
So, I've been dealing with multiple phone calls, reports, begging and pleadings the past few days and my stress levels are up there pretty darned high. I decided after not sleeping very well again last night, that I would reschedule my personal training appt. to a time when I was more up to it.
Then, I had a realization! This is exactly why I'm still in the rut I've been in for the past few years. Every time something happens, be it a little bump in the road or a significant event...I put myself off. So, I said, enough is enough! I made myself go to my appt. and worked out like I haven't in a very, very long time. I doubted my abilities and had a good coach to push me beyond my own limitations and I succeeded! I did more than I thought I could do and I felt great for it.
I think after my session next week, I'm going to sign up for more. I won't need a coach forever but I need one now. I'm worth the extra money and time. In the long run its cheaper than some of my medical expenses.
I still have the stress of everything else that's happened. Including having my card declined at the grocery after going to the gym. However, I also have the knowledge that I've done something really good for me today. That feels great! Its something no thief can rob me of, whether a stranger who stole my wallet or my own self-defeating attitude... and I kind of like having that little bit of control back.
Crazy may happen...but I'm still in the game...to win it!
