Cousin calls me "from work" (I think she was home calling from her cell) saying that it will be a while till she gets home - maybe I just want to go without her. Nope I tell her - I have no plans for the evening - whatever time she gets home is fine. Then she says, well, it will be a while, there will be traffic and I haven't finished my articles yet for my class tomorrow.
That's right - she pulled the University card. So, she didn't run. And neither did I. I did have a great session with my personal trainer though. It was so hard, it made me nauseous! But in a good way.
So then yesterday, was supposed to go to gym with dif friend, until her furnace broke (and of course, the temp dropped!) and by the time she got the repair man in and out - no workout time.
I was really mad for a while at my cousin and at myself. The next time I see her, she is going to complain about her weight, or her lack of stamina running. Maybe I should have pushed harder, but in the end, she has to want it also.
So, from now on I'm going to make my time to do whatever, and if I can have company - great - but if their furnace breaks or their paper isn't done, then they will miss out. I over accommodated and then I missed out myself. That doesn't help anyone. And it makes me grumpy and off program. I was counting on those points. Ok, I need to let it go.
In the meantime, I have to find someone to encourage this week as part of the NewYear'sBest challenge on SparkPeople. That is really coming along, and everyone is having great progress. Of course, we all have our ups and downs, but the over all trend is down, which is awesome!! I really like being a team leader.
To my buddies south of the border: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!! I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday full of good times, small portions of quality food, and good finds at your sales tomorrow!!
