One thing that can be a good thing is I am a planner. Even on days that I have no plans, I still tell myself today can be spontaneous. When actually it was a planned fly by the seat of my pants kinda day. I do not cope well when my plans get out of order. This is where it becomes a bad thing to be a planner.
Today my plans were to clean house, do laundry and get a good workout in. I really wanted to workout. I have a hard time fitting one in. I like doing it while kids are at school and my husband is at work. It helps knowing there will be no interruptions.
My plans changed. Someone needed me to take them somewhere and I couldn’t say no. It was the right thing to do. I got home and started the laundry. There was no time for anything else. I had to go pick the kids up from school and make dinner.
By time dinner is done I’m cold and tired. I barely have the energy to finish the laundry. I had a good nights sleep but I’m just exhausted. I somehow managed to stay awake.
I look at my Fitbit and it reads a little over 4000 steps with no active minutes. I’m already feeling miserable so this does not help. I’m grouchy, aggravated, tired and freezing. I don’t even want to be around myself but there’s no escape.
I also have ate too much dark chocolate to count as a healthy treat. I put in my calories and realized I’m close to going over my calorie limit.
I finally decide I need to get my steps in or at least try. I walked and walked around the room until I got in my 12,500 steps. Because it was nonstop I got in 85 active minutes. Not without a struggle but I did it.
I pray tomorrow goes better.
How was your day?
Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!
