I had an extremely long post about how my plans to be home doing laundry today were changed late Saturday. I had written about how it almost threw me into a stressed out-what-am-I-going-to-do mode, and then how I took a deep breath and relaxed.
But I deleted the lengthy, laborious post and I'll just suffice it to say that before getting too stressed out on Saturday night I reminded myself that everything will be fine.
The laundry can and will get done. The planned trip to the gym can and will be done another day. I knew I could still get up to exercise before work and that would be enough for the day.
Part of making this a lifestyle change is learning to go with the flow when plans change. I did this and it has gone fine.
I got up this morning at 5:45 to do a 30-minute Walk At Home DVD before getting on with my morning before work. I've also done two loads of laundry this evening.
Tomorrow I work half a day, so I should be able to get to the gym or at least get a full hour DVD workout in at home while getting more laundry washed before going in to work.
I guess this is another one of those non-scale victories. Moments when I realize life is happening and I'm doing good. Hooray! :)
