Learning To Go With The Flow

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! :)


  1. Great job! NSVs are more important than SVs many times :D

  2. Don't you just hate when life gets in the way? I spent most of Monday washing and ironing and I have another couple of loads ready to go again. It's just never ending and will always be there so I am going to take your philosophy of going with the flow and just taking it one step at a time. So what if I can't get to the gym? I mean I hate not being able to go cause it's my down time, my un-wind time, basically it's my selfish ME time, but I have to do it or I go crazy. I will just have to keep repeating to myself, go with the flow, go with the flow.........

    Thanks for the tip!
