Days 4 & 5
Soooo busy! This whole taking care of yourself is WORK! I decided to start exercising again. My plan was aqua aerobics, #DBT #counseling
group, ending with a WW meeting. “How do you make God laugh? Tell Him your plans.” or “Life is what happens when you’re making other plans.” Well, God got a good laugh and life happened, good.
1st the pool was closed. No big. I just changed into my after pool clothes, went into the fitness room, and did 20 minutes on the recumbent bike:
Then, I got a call that my group was canceled. Another adjustment. Ok. I’m flexible. I looked up the meeting times to find an earlier meeting. Lo and behold, there was a meeting in 30 minutes, which was just enough time for me to walk. So, I did.
I got there 27 minutes later, only to discover the WW store was closed. I’d looked at Monday’s schedule instead of Tuesday’s. I had three hours until the original meeting happened. What to do?
That’s when I noticed the irony of the Weight Watchers store being located immediately next to a Buffalo Wild Wings. 🤣 I had packed food to get me through two meetings and I was close enough to a mall with a food court where I could eat and pass the time.
I made it to my 4th meeting in 4 days, I’d exercised, and, thanks to an evening meal of fish, tomato, cucumber, and bell pepper, I stayed within my daily allotted points.
I prepped some things ahead for today. I tried an overnight steel cut oats crockpot recipe. I made my daughter’s lunch ahead of time. Time savers to make this morning smoother and less frantic than cooking two breakfasts, getting an autistic & ADHD child ready for school, and me ready for the day.
I woke with a throbbing tension/migraine headache combo. Woke up late, lost track of time, had a REALLY hard time focusing on the rest of the things I needed to gather for the day. I forgot the food.
I so didn’t want to do anything other than lie back down after my daughter got on the bus. But, I finally got out the door.
I did it. I walked to the WW store in 23 minutes, including a stop by the grocery store for some vitamin water. I made the meeting.
