Tonight was the first night I considered skipping my evening session of Zumba. I was meant to leave work at 3:30pm but at 3:20pm I realised that one of the girls who has been made redundant was leaving and nobody had gotten her a card or a gift. I've been there. I've left a company I worked at for 4.5 years and there was nothing and that was horrible. So I did the world's quickest whip round at the office and collected up $87.50 to spend. I literally RAN across to Harbour Town (a shopping centre down the street from work), ran into Kate Hill and thanks to the lovely and helpful ladies picked out a pink bag and matching purse. Picked up a card and gift bag at the newsagents with $1 to spare (which we put into the purse for good luck, it kind of worked out perfectly!) and ran back to the office!
Got back about 3:40pm and then had to wait around while everyone sloooowly signed the card before we could give her the gift. Anyway, I ended up leaving work about 4:10pm and just made the train after running full pelt to make it. It was worth it, though, to see the smile on her face and hear her say "OMG! I love pink!" over and over.
Anyway, the point of all that was that a part of me thought to myself "well, that's made me 40 minutes later than I should've been, I did workout this morning, maybe I could skip it. I didn't, though, a friend told me I just had to do my workout and to be honest once I got home there was little doubt in my mind that I would do it. I'm enjoying the workouts so much that it's not really like it's a chore to do them. I'm loving that I'm slowly becoming the kind of person that enjoys exercise. Tomorrow is my rest day but I'm hoping to rollerblade around the Swan River in the morning, it's about 10kms from memory! DH and I used to do it all the time when we first got together and now I'd like to do it again.
