Earth Still Turning

So, as I had promised myself, I was going to try to do better about rolling with the punches so to speak. Not freaking out if and when my rigid schedule goes off track. Some things are more important than sticking to a timeline that is pretty much meaningless to anyone but me.

My sister is going through a really tough time right now. She was able to come stay with me last night so I got in my workout on Thursday and took Friday as a rest day to spend time with her. We had a great time as predicted. I hate it that we don't live closer. Anyway, Saturdays are typically cardio and weights days for me. I get up and get in my workout done, have my egg white omelet and move along with the rest of the day. But, with my sister up, I had to do some revision. And you know what, it was fine. The world as I know it did not split in half. Again, spending time with her was much more important. So I just relaxed and enjoyed the time with her. We did the girly shopping thing of course. Hit the mall, Target, and DSW (shoes...shoes...more shoes!). We had lunch together, and I enjoy my cheese dip wholeheartedly! Oh, and I bought and wore another hat today!

After my sis left, I did briefly contemplate letting my workout for the day slide. But, I couldn't stray that far from my schedule. I mean, there are limits and all. I did end up forgoing weights, but did do a step workout (Imax 3) that includes plyo blasts and tacked on pushups at the end. So, no weights on Saturday and the earth is still turning... Who would have thunk it? I didn't have my egg white omelet either. Guess what? Yep, earth still turning.
