So I did fairly well on my fast break goals this week. I only ate fast food once, I've parked far away from every door except at home, and my water intake has went up. Alas I still haven't mastered the working out thing. I have the best of intentions but then life just keeps getting in the way. I'm doing little pieces at work so I'm getting something for the day. I've been doing lunges, squats, wall pushups, and calf raises every time I go to the bathroom. Plus I've been walking to the Wal-mart that is near my office at lunch time whether I need anything or not, just to get some more movement in, but it's not enough. I know I need some cardio (make you sweat-kind of cardio) in my life but I'm seriously struggling with it. I keep telling myself I'll get up early and do a 10 minute video, but then the baby wakes me up at 3 to eat and when my alarm goes off at 415 so that I can have time to exercise I hit snooze. When I do manage to get up early enough I'll barely be ready to start and either the 6 month old or the 5 year old wakes up and needs me. I know these are just excuses, but I honestly don't know how to fit it in on work days. I barely have 3 hours in the evenings to get homework done, dinner cooked, bottles and clothes washed, baths for both kiddos, and then bags packed for the next day. By the time I get all the daily stuff done I'm so exhausted sometimes I don't even feel like showering before I crash out. I'm only getting about 5 hours of sleep as is so I'm at a complete loss. I'm hoping the bits I'm forcing myself to get done at work will be enough for my work days and I've got to do some major stepping up on my 3 days off. Tomorrow is the beginning of my weekend and after little man is dropped at school, it's on. I don't want to burn myself out but if I'm going to hit my October goal, I've got to quit slacking.
