True Confessions

True Confessions! Man, why am I doing a True Confessions instead of a Toot Your Horn Tuesday? Let me tell you why. I have done little or nothing to be proud of these last few weeks.

My August sucked! I told you that last month in a True Confessions post. I had big plans for September. Well, it is September 10 and things still aren’t in the swing I was hoping for. Who ever took my motivation and time management skills, could you please give them back?

I went to four classes last week. I know that sounds good, but that is two classes a night on two nights. Not really that good. This week I had planned for three nights of six classes and I already missed last night. I don’t know if I have a cold or allergies or what, but I am miserable. I can’t breathe and my eyes look like I have been crying all day. I am literally blowing my nose every five minutes. I know you were dying to know that! Exercise and not being able to breathe don’t mix well, especially for a yoga class. Downward dog would be downward dead. I went and got medicine and I’m hoping to make class today and Wednesday.

Now, I am looking forward to next week. I don’t think I have anything extra. I have to be better by then. The new plan is for four days of classes which would amount to eight classes. I can live with that.

So…how about you? Did you have a rotten week too? Well, sit right down and tell us all about it. Leave your True Confessions right in the comments. I would like to think I am not the only one having a little trouble getting back in the swing of things after going back to work. Why is it always so hard to get back to normal when I am done with summer break? After 21 years of teaching, I should have this down pat by now.

Next week I will get it right! Thank goodness there is a next week to help us out.

    You aren’t alone, Nancy! Trust me….I have had the best intentions but I’m still struggling to get my new schedule to line up with my goals. I’m getting better but still have a ways to go. For the record….ALLERGIES SUCK!! I’ve had terrible allergy issues for the past 3 weeks and finally got some medicine that seems to be at least helping! Here’s to feeling better and next week! :-)

      We’ll get there, Ann! And yes, allergies do suck!!!

    i’m terrified that this bout with a virus is going to rob me of all my hard-earned fitness i gained sweating thru the summer heat/humidity. i’m on week 2, jay’s on week 3 with no end in site. (no the doctor wasn’t helpful)

      It goes away so much faster than it comes. That is just not fair. Hope you are feeling better very soon!

    I don’t know. I don’t think there is any shame in not working out when you aren’t well. Taking care of yourself of course includes eating well and getting in your exercise, but it’s also NOT exercising when your body tells you that it’s time to rest. Otherwise, I think you just extend how long you feel crummy when you push too hard.
    As for my true confession: I really shouldn’t have polished off that bag of chips over the weekend. No, it wasn’t a full bag, but still, I should have just thrown the durn thing out and not felt gross from all the grease afterwards.
    Take care of you and feel better soon!

      Thanks Tracy! Sometimes the chips taste too good to throw away. The good news is you get to start all over again when you need to.
