“If you fail to plan. You plan to fail.” – Harvey MacKay
It is so easy for it to happen. Sunday I pulled my calf muscle at yoga class. I tried to stretch it out that night with the foam roller but the pain was still there on Monday, so I took a rest day.
Tuesday I woke up at 4:45 a.m. for Body Combat but I was achy, feverish, and all around flu-ish. It’s quarter end at work, and there was no way possible I could stay home. I skipped Body Combat. By 10:00 a.m., I knew I would have to cancel the appointment with my trainer I had for Tuesday night.
Now, it’s Wednesday morning. I am starting to feel good again but I didn’t get my butt up out of bed, and I now need to get ready for work. I don’t have a game plan for today’s workout. This gets me in trouble.
I only have 1 session in my training package. I would like to continue, but it is expensive. I haven’t made up my mind and because of that I feel like my work out routine is completely up in the air.
I also am getting concerned about how I am going to get my workouts in next weekend. I have a trip planned to go to Dallas for the weekend. When I get home, Mike leaves for Dallas for a few days. I am less worried about my trip. I will be by myself and should be able to get my work outs done in the morning before my conference.
When Mike is gone, that is another story. For the first time since our kids were born, I will be on my own taking care of them for 3 days during the week. I have to work (although I have arranged to work from home for those 3 days) and the kids have school. I know lots of people have to manage this and more, but it isn’t something I am used to doing. And in the past I would just take those days off from working out, but I don’t really want to do that. I just need a plan.
That is what all this is boiling down to. I don’t feel like I have a plan.
Today I will figure it out. Today I will make a plan.
