Today was my first day off of work this week. I have been filling in for someone at work and it has led to me having less time at home. While normally this isn't really a huge deal, this week it really hit me hard that I didn't really have any down time. Besides just being exhausted from working with only a 40 min break, I have gotten almost nothing done and spent a lot of time at the computer at night time.
I have so many things rushing through my small head (I actually do have a small head - size XS motorcycle helmet), that I am finding I don't really want to sit in front of the TV when I get home. My brain is so active, that I have been coming down to work on my computer every night this week. That is a huge shift for me. Today, since it was my first day off, was super productive. I watched some important videos, worked on some worksheets, chatted with a mentor, and got stuff rolling. That is so exciting for me. I feel like I am rejuvenated and ready to get things going in all aspect of my life...except working out.
I have been so bad about working out since I got home from Memorial Day weekend. I did good while I was traveling, but once I got home, I was so exhausted from filling in for my co-worker at work that I just didn't want to workout. Needless to say, today was the day that I got back on the wagon. I did a workout this morning, did 100 squats for a 30 day squat challenge, and in about an hour I am going to go row for 45 minutes. I was supposed to row yesterday, but I didn't, so I am making it up today since I have more free time today. I am not going to beat myself up about it, but just jump back into the routine as I can. That is the key. If I let every small thing I miss get me down, I will never get anywhere. So, I have to change my mindset. My new mindset says to take it one day at a time and do what I can. I am not going to beat myself up for not rowing yesterday, and for having 2 - or maybe 4 - Girl Scout cookies last night. I really hope we are almost out of them, as they are a serious weakness of mine. haha.
Anyways, keep putting one foot in front of the other and take it one day at a time. I didn't do great yesterday with exercising and I haven't done great all week with productivity, but today I made up for it all, and it feels good. So yay!
