Well, I (barely) survived my first Tabata Barre class. Despite the difficulties and emotions, I pushed through.
This morning my daughter woke up with a fever, so I had to cancel my whole day. I was just feeling angry at the world, frustrated not having any control over the situation, resentful to my husband because he got to just “escape” and go to work. It was a difficult morning and I knew the day wasn’t going to be easier. I was especially pissed to have to cancel my barre class this morning knowing it’s the only hour of the day that I get for me.
Hubby knew how important the time at the barre has become for me and he did everything he could to encourage me to go this evening, including getting home early.
I felt the day was lost. I thought nothing could fix it. I felt like despite his offers I was just angry about it all. And then I ran into a friend who asked about barre and mentioned she was going to a class this evening (the same one I was considering), so I left that convo feeling a little more positive, confirmed and rearranged a few things, got out of my own way, and made it happen.
I don’t love going to evening classes (cause now I’m WIRED), but I’m soooo glad that I got myself in there. Not only do I feel better physically and mentally, but that was a killer class that pushed me to my limits, yet again.
I had every excuse to give up today. Every opportunity to blame others, give up, stay surly, but I chose to turn it around and do something positive.
The question is will I be able to weather Blitz in the am?
