Life sometimes doesn’t happen like we plan it, doesn’t it? The past few days have been a bit challenging. I had an issue with my children; they couldn’t go to school and I had to spend a lot of time and energy to get them better. We are all fine and healthy now, thank you.
Today was the first day since Thursday that I was able to work out. Yes, it’s Sunday and it was only two days but nevertheless, that was not on my plan. I wanted to go to the gym on Friday to do cardio and then The Bar on Saturday. But that didn’t happen. I could have done a video Friday or yesterday but I was just not in the mood and had no desire to do a video, not even Tracy Anderson’s. I figured I could work out at The Bar Method on Sunday.
When I woke up this morning and looked out the window, I got a pit in my stomach. There was snow, snow, snow. I was signed up to take a 9:30 class and I let my husband sleep in until 8:40. (Side note: my youngest woke me up at 6 am. Grrr). Anyway, he said the roads would be bad but that I could “try.” I am a born and raised NYC chick and I never owned a car until 4 1/2 years ago when we moved to the burbs. And, I could not help but think of my last recent experience with driving in the snow just to make it to a Bar class.
I told myself the roads were probably not that bad and I got dressed in my Lululemon outfit.
Turns out I was wrong. Way wrong! The roads were not plowed. There was only an inch or two of snow, but that made everything all slushy. At one point, I was slipping and sliding on the road!!! I thought to myself- What if I die on the same day my Mom died? It was a gruesome thought.
I made it to the class safe and sound. However, I forgot to take any meds before I left the house and ended up having 2 coughing fits during the class. Yes, I am still sick and not feeling so great.
The roads were better on the drive back home. Thank God.
I should note that I have lost 1/2 inch on each thigh ever since I began working out at The Bar. I have taken 19 classes since November 19, 2008. Not bad, huh? I have not taken any other measurements. I keep on telling myself I should take pictures, which reminds me of a great post one of my favorite bloggers wrote here about taking photos. I have also shed weight and just feel thinner, more toned and better in general. Those are the reasons why I drove to the class, yet again, in the snow.
Since the girls don’t have school tomorrow due to a holiday and I have a conflict on Tuesday morning, it looks like I won’t be back at The Bar until Wednesday. However, I plan on going to the gym on Monday and maybe on Tuesday if I can swing it. As much as I love The Bar, I do miss the gym too. I want to do more cardio. I was never a huge fan of the treadmill, but for whatever reason, that is what I have felt like doing recently while I am there. We’ll see what mood I am in tomorrow.
