Getting sick sucks. I’m not sick now, but I feel like I’m still recovering from when I got the plague back in March/April. That derailed my momentum something fierce and I am having a really hard time getting it back. I went to the gym once last week, which is 100% more often than the week before, so I suppose that’s an improvement.
But having taken three months off (more or less), I feel like I am back to the start again. That is frustrating but I am aware of WHY that happened, which helps me feel better about it.
I’m not making myself a priority. That’s definitely part of the problem. I’m putting the other people’s needs (animals, too) ahead of my needs and that’s always a recipe for disaster. It’s hard, though – it feels like everyone constantly needs SOMETHING from me, and I try to keep all my plates spinning, but sometimes I drop one. It’s usually the one with my name on it.
And now, school is going to be out. I don’t know if I’ll be able to take Jillian to the gym with me, since she might be a bit too old for the child watch room, which means I’ll have to get creative, and probably have to get up early and beat the weather.
The upside is that I will have a whole bunch of free time in July since Jillian will be at playground camp most days. I am looking forward to being able to take classes at the gym again!
