Well, today was a first. I skipped Insanity. I wish I had a good excuse, but I don’t. I got dressed, went downstairs, started the DVD, got 6 minutes into the warm-up, annnnnnnnnd bailed. I just walked away.
I was in a bit of a funk, and I just wasn’t mentally motivated to make it through today. I’m trying to sort out my future (yes, my entire existence) and it’s not an easy task when I keep getting the runaround from the folks in charge. Bleh. I talked to my mom (which is generally the best solution to any problem), and I feel a renewed spark to keep my chin up and push ahead with my goals.
To give you a quick update, I’m in the middle of a career change. Leaving the corporate marketing world and returning to college for early childhood teaching certification. I am incredibly excited and so blessed to be able to make this dream a reality. I just wish getting started didn’t involve so much paperwork, unanswered emails and general uncooperativeness.
I’m a smart, passionate individual wanting to give you money to get my licensure. Surely that means something to someone?! :) I’m weighing several options right now along with their relative costs (some being quite substantial) – UWM, Mount Mary and Marquette. I don’t want to sound completely down about the application process because I definitely have encountered some GREAT and helpful people along the way. Hopefully this will all be worked out by the new year!
Anyways, back to Insanity. Now I have a decision to make. Either do 2 workouts tomorrow or sacrifice my rest day on Saturday. I’m guessing Saturday the healthy thing to do. It’s not a good feeling going to bed failing to complete today’s workout, but… tomorrow’s a new start!
