channeling anger where it belongs, at the gym

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Ok, so everyday is full of blessings and curses. Blessings being my family, my home, my friends and my dog. But today I had a plan. At 4pm Miss Jeanne was going to the gym to work out with Amy. Have a saunna and catch up on all things Jeanne and Amy. We need that every 3 days or so. Life got in the way. I had to do some paperwork before going to the gym. The kids split and the trash needed to be organized and brought out to the end of the driveway. Oh, the wind blew and all the recycling went flying around the yard so I had to pick that up. I was going to go for a bike ride since I missed Amy at the gym. But now I got a jump on dinner and the bike ride is out the window. I am ANGRY ANGRY ANGRY BECAUSE MY LIFE IS BEING PUT ON HOLD. Or was it?
I threw together a mac salad and marinated the chicken and grabbed my gym bag and water bottle. I ran to the gym. It was 7:20 before i got on a machine. It was 8:30 before I finished stretching. I called my kids on the way home and had them turn the forman grille on. Salad was already done. Chicken and salad after a 845 calorie burn on the arc. 100percent frustration buster. PHEW.
Saved by the gym. I just needed a good cardio to get my mind in order. I got to talk to Aims on the phone. And my friend Kelly who my crabby mood scared away. I called her back after the gym to tell her that I love her and thanks for her ongoing support.
I found time for me. I did not put me last behind everyone in my house. I have to remember each day that I am worth this and that I need to work out for my mental state of mind.
Thank you spark friends and my friends at home that get this.

    HOORAY FOR YOU! That is exactly the way to handle it - do what only you can do, and let the rest of the family pitch in. That way you get to take care of yourself, they get to learn how to take care of themselves, and you don't have to be crabby! Win-win situation. Glad you got to the gym, but sorry you missed your sauna :(
