Must learn to be flexible
I just realized part of my problem. If things don't go the way I planned, I don't know what to do. I like to plan. I like to have things laid out and I like to know what I'm doing, when. When things don't work out as I planned, there are times when I just don't know what to do. For example; I have been planning to go to Crossfit tonight all week. I've been saying it all week because I know myself and would wuss out if I wasn't careful. So all week, all day, I've been saying Crossfit tonight. I even told Hubby. Then I decide to see if I can figure out what the WOD is, so I start stalking Facebook. And I stumble across a post that it is a Benchmark Bash tonight...Whhhhhaaaaaattttt? I don't want to go back with to a benchmark bash..... So I message Bucky and discover it's true. And he's not coaching tonight. Ugh!!! So the plan was to go to Crossfit tonight; go to the mall to cruise and grab dinner; Weight Watchers in the morning. Walking, walking, walking.... Once Crossfit tonight was out, I literally did not know what to do. Initially I just sat on the couch and was like, what am I going to do??? Luckily, I came to my senses and I jumped up and hopped on the treadmill. That is where i am right now as I type this. I am walking, typing, and watching Dr. Phil. I think after this I will head over to the mall for a bit. I like to cruise around during the holidays. There are cool things that they don't normally have. Also there are great sales. Though I am at a point where I don't want to buy anything until I'm closer to returning. I'm hoping to make some progress in the leaning down department before then. Anyway, I'm going to go to the mall, cruise for a bit, pick up some steak for dinner, and then come home.
So my lesson today is that I need to be more flexible. I need to not only have a plan B but to follow through with it when Plan A doesn't work out. I think I've seen this a couple of times before, but this is the first time I it has really hit me.
