Is that where it goes?

Thank you for your helpful hints yesterday.

I had a "wow I'm an idiot" moment when reading the pull buoy comments. I was putting it between my lower legs, by my calves.  I couldn't believe how hard it was to keep in place. No wonder, I had it in the completely wrong spot! haha

Yesterday I had a double session scheduled, which did not happen. I was supposed to have a 54 min ride on the trainer, and was pumped about it. Unfortunately for me, Kevin had stayed home from work sick, so he was there when I got home, which is unusual. And of course, he was in the middle of a movie. Some old fashion movie that I would rather die than watch, so I decided to make dinner first, ride later. But then, ride later turned to... sleeve of thin mints, some cadbury mini eggs & wheat thins later. You can bet after that I had zero motivation to ride.

I'm not sure what it is about change in plans that gets me so flustered that I fall apart. I mean I completely fell off my good eating plan I had been with all day. Which is why I made sure to make it to the gym this morning for a run and some strength training. Maybe I'll get that ride in tonight.

Good news on the home front! The builder is coming over today after work to check out my basement. Basically on the phone he said "Well everyone has water in their basement right now" Which I think is a lame excuse. This is a new home, and I SHOULDN'T have to be worried about water problems for the rest of my years here. He said he'd have to look at it to see what the problem is, so cross your fingers for me!

It's amazing how quickly we can be thrown off track. Try not to beat yourself up about it, we all have those days.

I know Stephanie I am that way to. I am work in progress. Some days I am fine with change other days I go crazy. I feel sorry for my hubby. Hang in there it will get better.

If I don't work out before work/right when I wake up, or right after work, it seldom happens. Life and snacks too easily get in the way.

I hope your builder is helpful. I don't live where you live, but I can't imagine water in the basement is just a fact of life. Sheesh!

Changes in plans throw me off, too, girl - don't feel bad! Just get up, dust off and start again!

Your post title cracked me up : ) Glad your basement is going to be getting looked at. Lamo excuse indeed! No worries about falling off the wagon once in awhile, it's about getting back on which is the most important step!
