Stepping Out of My Routine

I hate stepping out of my routine, even for little things. Someone (LadyVol1?) commented at some point that I had a need to be in control. I think that’s at the heart of why I dislike so strongly changes in my routine.

Spontaneity? I can handle that, which might sound contradictory. However, I like surprises. Also, there’s no way to have three kids without being at least a little flexible.

Today I am attending a work-related dinner. I enjoy spending time  with my colleagues, but I’m missing my workout. There’s a spiritual practice involving living in the moment that could help me in these situations. It seems so pointless to expend energy wishing one could avoid what one perceives as an interruption. Living in the moment makes sense.

  1. I don’t like changes either. But whatever i miss i try to make up “workout for instance”. But sometimes when all else fails I give in a little. It takes months to lose workout progress so taking days here and there wont hurt a bit. 🙂 Keep posting, <subscribing
