Whenever I'm going all balls to the wall committed, I can't help but feel like a failure when things don't workout as planned.
Exhibit A: Last night I had plans to go to yoga with @Ironken when Mother Nature decided to dump a whack load of snow on us causing my commute to be quite a bit longer, thus missing yoga.
I told myself "Ok, Amy... not a big deal. It is Monday after all, and you had a shitty day. Just make today a rest day and kill it the rest of the week. Your penance for missing yoga is to tend to the mountain of laundry, dust the bedroom and clean your bathroom"
...side note.. why is putting away laundry so ridiculous?
So, I did that. And was feeling pretty awesome about my accomplishments and had a little extra bounce in my step.
Picked up my phone to read this:
While I didn't do any push ups with my laundry baskets, I did take the girl for an hour long walk in the snow.
While my day didn't go 100% as planned, I'm happy that I didn't park my ass on the couch and write the day off as a failure - which I often do, which often leads to a day written off in the nutrition category also.
