Disappointed in Myself!
Monday, March 02, 2015
Yesterday started off really great - I love that March started on a Sunday, makes me feel like a good day for new things. I updated my SparkPeople, did my Bible Study, and even worked on our finances - which tends to be difficult since there is a lot more money going out than coming in.
Then I went into my workout room and did a yoga tape and one of Coach Nicole's strength videos to work on my core - which was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. I walked on my treadmill for 20 minutes, did the stationary bike for 5, and made sure I made my goal of steps on my Pedometer. So it all sounds like a pretty good day..... until my husband and I talked after dinner.
As indicated earlier, we are on a fixed income with more expenditures and income - which means every month I need to compensate with our savings and I'm now going in to my retirement savings. Things will be better in just a few months when my husband will also be getting social security, but for now money is tight. NOT that we are living in poverty, but we do need to watch our spending. Of course, his birthday is coming up and he wants something that is totally over budget. And that one thing totally ruined the rest of my evening!
So today, in the light of day, I know I need to find a way to "count to 10" or SOMETHING so I don't get myself so down over such a little thing! And today's Spark Coach lesson seemed to be directed right at ME!
