Day Seventy-Two…

Sometimes you have to be flexible and take it as it comes. Today was one of those days for me, and it’s been awhile since I was posting so close to the wire at 11:57 PM. Today could have been a disaster because my schedule and routines were totally disrupted.

It began early when I found out I had to be the substitute music teacher. I don’t sing very well, and I don’t play an instrument. So, it was interesting.

Being flexible

I had to eat my lunch at 11:00 AM and that was a little tricky because I was worried that I would be famished by the time I got home. I was pretty hungry by 4:30 PM when I walked in the door. But I managed to keep my cool and go about the work of preparing dinner. We had baked ziti, but I made mine separately so that I would know exactly how many smartpoints it would be:

This requires some discipline, being very hungry and having to weigh and measure out my portions apart from making dinner for everyone. As I was doing this, I realized that I forgot to sign up for 5:15 AM spin so, I ended up being on the Waitlist. So, I have to be flexible again – I think I’m going to try to make it.

Finally, I went to a show at The Paramount in Huntington. Yes, on a school night. My husband is a big King Crimson fan and I went along. If you don’t know King Crimson it’s sort of like listening to abstract art. You’re not really sure how it all goes together but in the end, it works.

I think so much of getting to goal is wrapped up in being persistent, and patient. That, and I’ve got to believe I can do this; especially on days that are unpredictable and challenging. More tomorrow…
