Today, I had plans to try out a new recipe (I even remembered to put frozen meat in fridge the night before). I was going to work out after T went to bed. I had also made plans for a play date for T and I with another family at the pool tomorrow. “Perfect, a healthy recipe and activity ready to go,”I thought to myself, driving to collect T from school on my way home from work. Unfortunately…one look at my flushed faced, teary eyed little boy and I knew all bets were off.
T has a tummy bug. I’ve had to change the bedding, wash him (and my floors) down, and now I’m currently typing this/scrolling through the internet for the best way to treat a GI bug while he sleeps half on me, half on my bed.
I titled this entry “expect the unexpected” because really, I think for resolutions/goals/lifestyle changes to take… they need to accommodate the unexpected. It’s so easy to look at perfect running plans with one rest day that falls on the same day each week, pick it up, start it, and then be bitterly disappointed with yourself if you can’t stick to it. But life doesn’t work the way those plans are written. Wiggle room is required!
Same with gorgeous bullet journals. I love them, and I love scrolling though images of them on Pinterest! However… I decided an accountability blog might be a better option for me, because my life has a tendency to get in the way. Marking down stomach flu doesn’t really fit in with gorgeous images of the bullet journals I’d love to be organized enough to keep. Where is the box for that?
Tomorrow, we won’t be at the pool. I didn’t get time to exercise after T went to bed as planned, but I can do that workout tomorrow, from the exercise bike in our living room, while we stay in and watch netflix.
Anyway… as you might have guessed from the photo… we had Kraft dinner for supper.
