It's official-I canceled my trip to Philly today. I hate being an adult sometimes...but I had to do it. While the government "shutdown" is over-we STILL don't know when we will get paid (it sucked working for free for 3 weeks but sux worse not knowing when you're gonna get paid for that work). I'm trying not to be disgruntle (besides what good would it do?) and it's definitely given me incentive to become "debt free" and use the money I would have used for Philly to pay on my credit card.
A bonus for not going to Philly is that I don't have to feel ashamed for not being further along on my training. I used every excuse in the book to NOT work out and 80 percent of the time it worked. Sometimes old dogs just don't learn new tricks! But I'm not going to feel bad anymore for slacking (no one knows how much I slacked besides YOU guys and who YOU gonna tell!!??? LOL) and wipe the slate as clean as possible. Today's a new day and there are several races in the future. I'm opting to stay pretty close to home for races until further notice. This shut down really got to me and really showed the importance of being frugile. My health IS important but I don't need to travel 870 miles and need to stay in a hotel for 5 days.
Have a great night!
