I always struggle on Wednesdays. My husband almost always falls asleep on the couch on Tuesday nights. I have no idea why, but he does. I always schedule a work out in my living room on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. If he's asleep in the living room, I obviously can't work out in there. So, when my alarm goes off at 6am and I realize he's not in the bed on Wednesday mornings I re-set the alarm for 7 and go back to sleep. This morning was of course, one of the same...add that to the fact I've slept poorly the past 2 nights and I slept until 7:30am, making my whole morning a rush.
This is wrong on so many level but here are a few reasons.
1. I have a laptop that plays DVDs and a huge bedroom. Problem solved.
2. I am in a significantly bad mood almost every Wednesday because I don't work out in the mornings, I know how to correct the situation, but I continue to do this same thing every Wednesday.
3. I end up working out after work on Wednesday, I much prefer morning work outs because it sets the tone for my entire day.
So, this throws my whole day off, makes me mad at the husband (for no good reason) and dampers my spirit.
Did I mention I'm a creature of habit? If my habit or routine is broken I get really grumpy. I even carry around a book with me that I call "The Panic Book" it's a day planner that has everything from my meals, work outs and blog ideas to reminding me to do laundry or take the trash out. I like to have a schedule, or I feel like I might forget something. I feel out of control and I do not like that feeling.
Wow. You guys just got a peek into my head...be careful, it's scary in here.
What I need to do now is take a deep breath.
I know I will do a work out after work. I had a great Green Monster Smoothie this morning, have a healthy lunch, snack and healthy dinner planned. One rescheduled work out should not ruin my day.
Do you ever feel, during weight loss or trying to change your life in any way really, that routine is crucial? Do you get flustered when it's thrown off?
