I mean honestly it’s as if the devil or the evilness knows when I’m trying to be good and on point, and it sends different issues to sabotage my good endeavors. So last week was the first week of the new year. The week when everybody is trying to stick to their resolutions. Well I was one of those people. Unfortunately the week didn’t go quite as planned. Here’s how it went instead:
Monday~I work overtime on Mondays so I knew trying to squeeze in a workout wasn’t gonna happen. Not until I can get into a real routine, which is what I’m working on.
Tuesday~Thanks to my monthly friend I woke up with a cruicial migraine and cramps and the migraine WOULD NOT go away!!! I took so many meds that day it’s ridiculous, and it was still lingering by the time I went home.
Wednesday~So this was the day I was like, ok it’s gonna happen–I thought wrong! After being up with Jordan in and out of sleep from 1am to 4:44am, working out was not an option. Frankly I had to be able to go to work and get thru my day, so I took an hour nap before work.
Thursday~ Yayyy today I worked out!!! I had a full night’s sleep, felt rejuvinated, felt like I was getting back on track. I did Cardio Party Remix. It’s 30 minutes, but has 2 turbos!!!
Friday~Payday which meant I knew I had to pay GUC (utitlities/electric) but I still intended to workout…that is until I saw my next bill was over $350!!! I was out trying to find a space heater and very highly angry, so no… there was no workout.
On Friday later in the day, I started to feel that tickle in my throat. You know, the one that says you’re about to get sick…stop it now! Well I started to stop it on Saturday when I had to go back to work to retrieve my pocketbook that I left the night before (idk why I’ve been so forgetful lately, it’s not the first time I’ve left my pocketbook or my phone) Saturday I had to get groceries and clothes for Brianna and household goods. And Sunday when I woke up, is when I knew, it had hit me…I was sick. I still had to cook Sunday dinner. I never got a nap. Jordan woke up that night and I still had to get up with him. So yesterday, I went to work but had to leave early because I had to preserve my voice. When I get sick in a way that hits my throat, especially with coughing, I usually lose my voice. When I lose my voice it’s gone for a few days. I work in customer service, I do a helluva lot of talking in a day. I read a lot of disclosures. So I still don’t feel that great, but I feel better than I did. And I’m drinking a lot of coffee and hot tea to keep my voice. So needless to say, no workout this morning.
I just really hate that when I’m trying to get back on it, something is always trying to hinder me. One of those things is almost always Jordan not sleeping thru the night. He’s done that when I had job interviews, or meetings, or when I wanna wake up and workout. It never fails. But I’m here to say that I’m praying that I feel much better by nighttime today. And I’m praying that I get a full night’s sleep so that I am well rested for my workout tomorrow. I am so disappointed in myself for not sticking to the plan…but we fall down and we get up. And no matter how many times I fall I will always get back up again.
