The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

8 Jan

What I had planned for my morning and what happened are two very different scenarios.

The plan:

  • To get the kids off to school.
  • To run 4 miles.
  • To go to Weight Watchers.
  • To do my Shred DVD.
  • To do a little reading.


  • Checked my oldest into school late after she slept in a bit after recovering from a bad headache last night.
  • Sprinted across town to get from one school to the preschool carpool on time.
  • Did 30 day Shred.
  • Rushed Weight Watchers to weigh-in.
  • Inhaled a LATE breakfast.
  • Attended a website meeting at church.

It’s ok. I have learned that each day brings stresses and challenges of its own and if I am not willing to be flexible and readjust I will become overly stressed and shut down.

Did I get to do my run this morning? No.
Was that my only chance to run today? Not if I get creative…

    I like how you’re taking it easy on yourself–and celebrating what you did accomplish, rather than berating yourself for what you didn’t.
