I worked last night until after 3 a.m. so, needless to say, when the munchkins woke this morning at 8, I was still a tad drowsy. I was moving pretty slow and we managed to get up, dress, have breakfast, and head out to run some MUCH needed errands by somewhere around 11:30/11:45. We had to get groceries - if we wanted dinner anyway. So we headed out to the farm that I buy produce, then to Walmart. That in itself took until 2:00. I also had to go to the library to pickup a book for my new book club (which I am totally excited about, but that's irrelevant right now).
By the time we got lunch and headed home, it was very close to 3:00. This is when it occurred to me that I had not planned my workout for the day. It also occurred to me that I had no clue as to when it would happen. I had to be at work tonight from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. again, so it was a must that I get in a nap. At 3:20, I put the kids in their room and told them I didn't care what they did, just don't come out of the room. That worked great, by the way.....other than those 5 times they did come out.
Anyway, my first thought (at 3:35) was to lay down for an hour, get up, workout, cook dinner, eat with the fam, shower & leave for work by 6:40. Yeah....... I am exhausted and stressed out just from typing all of that. How 'bout you?
So then I decided I would nap, cook, eat, shower, and go to work. Then, I would come home - at 3 a.m. - and workout before bed. My mind tells me I am nutz for this one, but I still haven't dropped the idea because I ended up napping for a constantly interrupted hour and a HALF - much more than I planned, right?? I will see how I feel when I get off work and then make a final decision.
My prediction is that Day 7 will have to be chalked up as a FAIL. I am trying to not kick myself too bad and tell myself that it really isn't a total fail. I am trying to keep in mind that I was able to work out SIX days in a row. I am not thinking of Day 7 as a failure. I am thinking of it more as a NON-Success.
Bottom line is that seven days ago, I thought it was impossible to run THREE days in a week and I just worked out for SIX days.....IN A ROW!! Even when I have felt "too tired" or didn't have enough time, I sucked it up and did the best that I could, no matter what.
No matter what happened with Day 7........
I am really, REALLY trying and that, to me, is SUCCESS in my book.
