I Had These Plans...

>> Monday, November 03, 2008

With the "fall back" aspect of Daylight Savings happening this weekend I thought it would be a perfect time to begin my workouts again. Since I was able to drag myself out of bed by 7am I figured 6am would be a snap with the time change.

So, last night before bed, I moved stuff around in our gym. Yes, I have a "gym". A really nice one, in fact. We bought the weights a few years ago because there are no gyms we like in our town. The Y costs way too much and their equipment isn't very nice. And the 24-hour gyms in strip malls are, well, not a gym so much as a bare-bones place to exercise. And I have that at home... See?

sigh... I know... You don't have to tell me...

So, I had the gym set up. I had my laptop in there so I could listed to last Friday's Glenn Beck program. I had a bottle of water in the refrigerator. I went to bed around 9pm. I was exhausted.

And then, sometime around 3 am, Brenna made her way downstairs, crawled over me and situated herself in between Doug & I in our bed. In all honestly I barely registered her crawling into bed with us. Until an hour or so later when I had her feet in my back. And then an arm flung around my neck. And then she laid on top of me...

My alarm went off at 6am. And I couldn't drag myself out of bed.

I'll try again tomorrow... Nothing like beginning the week a failure...

I wish I had those things at home, it would be so much easier than finding time to leave the house.

Not failure, just a step. You can do it tomorrow!!

I am just happy to get a shower some days! Some goals are a work in progress- the fact that you even had the forethought to prepare is still a success.
Baby steps, baby!

Happy to be at Home 1 Powered By Ringsurf
