Today has been another hectic day. A stressful day. I’m the type of person that worries when something is out of the ordinary. I’m a cancer, I’m intuitive, I’m a mother. I KNOW when something isn’t right and something isn’t normal. What I wish (and am working on) I had better control of was my anxiety and how easily I get drained when I’m upset about something. So to say the past 2 days have been anything less than emotionally, mentally, and physically draining would be the understatement of the century.
Evan looks the best he has in 12 hours so I’m thrilled about that. Both kids went to bed and were asleep by 7:45 and I went to my room to just relax and rest for a minute. I truly thought about skipping my workout while I was laying there texting my mom. But I couldn’t let the girls down in my accountability group. They’re pushing themselves past their excuses, and I needed to too. I couldn’t let myself down. And just as I was realizing that my mom text me and told me to go do something for myself. And I knew exactly what that was… I headed to the kitchen to mix up some pre workout.
I headed to the basement and was met with yet another obstacle…. Nick dog sat for friends while I was out of town and every time another dog is in our house our 11 year old min pin, Bo, becomes a territorial asshole and pees all over everything. So yup…. you guessed it. Those $300 weights of mine… peed on. I went to pick them up and was overwhelmed by the smell of stale dog urine pooled at the bottom of the weight rack. Nothing a little time, water, clorox wipes, bleach, and a lot of F words couldn’t fix. But again, I debated just saying “forget it” and skipping. But at this point I was in too deep.
So I hit play. And so many times @chrisdowningfitness downing spoke to my soul. “we struggle together. We triumph together. we have victory together.” 100% what our groups are all about and today I’m beyond grateful for my girls. For my mom for reminding me to do something for ME.
Day 2 in the books. Those bear kick backs though….. with that hold though… OUCH. #butdatbootydoe
