Last night I had these intentions for this morning. I was going to hit the grocery store before my class at 9, we have a weekly class/meeting every Tuesday at the salon, and then I was going to go the gym right after class and do legs, abs and cardio. It’s a great plan in theory, the grocery store would empty at that hour and the gym wouldn’t be packed either. The reality is that I am NOT a morning person and I shut my alarm off instead of hitting snooze. Then instead of getting ready for the day I sat and read the book I started last night. I read for way too long and had to rush to get to class on time. And then the worst part happened, there were donut holes and coffee cake. Usually I am not really tempted by this type of stuff but since I hadn’t eaten a decent breakfast I dove in.
In the past I would have just given up on healthy eating and exercising and vowed to start back at it tomorrow. But that’s not going to get me anywhere, so I just picked up the plan where I had left off. After class I went to the grocery store and mostly stuck to my list. I randomly purchased curry sauce and fish oil but no junk food made it into my cart.
One of my reusable bags did not make it home unscathed. The handle ripped off and I had to tie it back together. Luckily it held up until I got it in the house.
I made myself a nice healthy lunch and got ready for the gym. I had a great workout and I feel all sorts of jiggily legged. I even made it to Yoga tonight! I haven’t been since before Christmas and it felt great to get centered with my body again. It’s amazing how much flexibility I can loose in a month.
So that’s how I saved the day from being a complete and utter train wreck to my health.
