One Track Mind

Today I went to my second session at Curves. I got dressed and out of the house before 10:00 am and headed out to exercise. I am very rarely awake by 10:00 am let alone out of the house so that in itself was amazing. I was on a mission to get there exercise and then come home and get to work.

As usual things don’t always go as expected. I was able to go there an exercise but miss introvert here also had the task of having to talk to somebody. When I walked in the Curves the owner was there and began talking to me. Don’t get me wrong she is a very nice person I just wasn’t expecting to have to talk to somebody in the morning while I was exercising.

We talked about what I did for a living and I explained that I was an ADD Coach. So now not only was I talking instead of just exercising I was in a sense marketing myself which I had no intention of doing. I’m not sure why I am suprised that doing only one thing is challenging when my brain is always switching from one thing to another.

Yet again this experience reminded me that I am connected to the rest of the world. There are very few actvities out there that don’t in one way other another involve other people. Maybe it’s time to start paying some attention to them…

    I usually don’t have a problem talking with people. That’s my problem sometimes. I have to watch what I say. I get carried away talking. Changing from one subject to another. People look at me kind of funny, Like what is she talking about!
    So I need to calm down my talking sometimes. Try and think before I speak.

    Wow! I’m impressed that you
    1. Can exercise at 10:00 in the morning and
    2. Were able to multi-task; exercising and talking. I can do neither!

    Good luck with the Curves. I tried it once and wrenched my back so bad the first day, I was out of commission for a long time.

    I don’t like exercising around other people. I can see where for them, it may make the time go faster. But I need to use all of my energy to concentrate on what I’m doing. So, jogging works best for me. Slow jogging, that is!
