Why is this week so busy?

I have a feeling that I'm going to have a long week. Yesterday I didn't feel very well and I skipped my morning cardio, but I did my regular workout. I know I pushed myself, because I'm sore today, but I know I was off my game. 

Today I did my morning cardio with Janelle and then went to work and what-not. I had planned on going to do my regular workout this afternoon with Janelle, but I have to stay late at work. Now I'm going to have to make up that workout at some point. Bummer. I hate working out alone. 

Tomorrow I know I will do my cardio in the morning before I go to work, but I think I have a meeting in the afternoon that will take up the time of my regular workout....which if I can go workout I will have to do alone....sad face. 

I don't even want to get into Thursday yet. I know I will do both workouts, but I think I will have to do one of them alone....more sad faces. 

Maybe Friday will be mildly normal...maybe. I'm not holding my breath though. 

I'm tired of working out alone and I feel like a big whiner! I mean who complains about all this working out and working out alone? I'm just in that mood today to whine, I guess. I just get panicked when my routine is different and my gym time is different. That seems to be the big theme for the week, "screwed up." I know I'll get all of these workouts in and completed, I'm just not sure when it's going to happen at this point!


  1. I just started following you so I am not sure where you workout but I have a couple of ideas that might help. 1 is Netflix! I know sounds crazy but if you have a smartphone you can watch movies/shows while you workout on the machine for your cardio. Makes it a little easier for me when I am by myself. A 2nd option is something I did this summer. I posted a note at the gym I workout that I was looking for a workout partner, listed the days and times I am trying to make it to the gym and just said I was a 29yr old SAHM working on a master degree in Ed. I ended up with 5 people emailing me and 3 of us working out toegther a good portion of the summer. Not everyone would make every workout, but since there was a group of us, I almost never worked out alone. Hope this helps.
    Keep it up though!

  2. I would focus on the fact that you are working out period which is more than the rest of the population including me. :) You are awesome to have the commitment.

  3. Anything that screws up my "norm" sends me for a loop and makes me feel off too...just shows how much we rely on habit.

    Just keep with it and things will get back to normal soon!

  4. Ugh, i feel ya. I hate when my routine is off! It makes me pissy and makes me completely in a bad mood all week. I hope next week is better for you!
