The cat or healthy exercise?

Yes, that was my choice this morning. I set the alarm to get up an hour earlier than I needed to (I worked this Saturday morning...story of my life) in order to have time to get a bit of exercise in. The alarm went off. I hit the snooze button, rare for me to do in the first place. I fell back asleep and actually started to DREAM in that 9 minutes! It went off again. I got up and went to the bathroom and then stumbled toward the exercise bike. Lucy (the cat) was laying on the seat of the bike just sleeping away. SOUND asleep. Well, I couldn't interrupt her beauty sleep could I? So I went back to sleep and slept for that hour. Yep, fell right back to sleep and deep enough to actually be dreaming. Hmmm...maybe I needed my sleep! I'm not tooo worried. Todd and I have talked about either hiking or going to the gym this afternoon. This morning was just going to be an 'insurance' against the chance that we don't exercise later today. And if we ended up exercising....a double workout.

Ok....the big decision. As I've said, I'm having difficulty finding and getting to a weight watcher meeting. I've decided that I'm going to try to make whatever meeting I chose to attend one that is at the beginning of the week. That way I have more chances to get my butt to an alternate meeting if anything happens that keeps me from going to my 'regular' one. The problem is that there isn't any one meeting now that I can definitely get to. My schedule changes at work ...and there are now no meetings that run outside of my work hours! Sooo that is the plan. AND, I'm going to a meeting come hell or high water this upcoming week!!!!! I've GOT to!

Oh, those horrible snooze buttons. I used mine regularly when I was working. And it seemed like my best sleep was that 9 minutes.

I know what you mean about finding a WW meeting that fits your schedule. I couldn't either so that's why I opted to do the WW online. Course that didn't give me all the support I needed with real people but it did work for me for a while (and it was much cheaper). Hope you find one that works out and if you can only hit the regular one on a monthly basis and hit some others in between it will probably work.

Hummmmm the snooze button. I love it and hate it. This morning it was raining and I was sleeping so good when I awoke remembering I was to meet friends for breakfast at 9 am. I hurried to get there and they did not show!!! They forgot. Oh well I didnt need to eat breakfast out anyway.

Good luck with fitting a meeting into your week. Your so thoughtful to consider you cat's need for peaceful sleep.

Cats have such a hard time getting good sleep, I'm glad you let him rest ;)

You know meetings were the backbone of my program. Glad you're finding a way to get to them no matter what.

Many's a night I've contorted my body to fit on my own bed, so as not to disturb my slumbering kitties. Some mornings I skip making the bed if there's a cat curled up on the duvet. However, I want to reassure you, your cat will find another sleeping spot, and he/she will forgive you! Lol... and I thought I was the only one!! ;)
