Let me start this blog by saying that I HAD A WONDERFUL WEEKEND with my family! I had a lot of fun watching movies with the pooh and piglet and had a really good time at the pool with the girls yesterday.
And then the shoe dropped. So let me just ask, does anyone else feel like they really struggle on weekends to stay on track with fitness as well as eating healthy? I do! I get up later (because I stay up later), I lose my 'me time' early in the mornings when I sleep in, I am not on a tight schedule, so I rarely get all the exercise on the weekends that I get during the week and by Monday (Tuesday this week!) I feel like a big lump that has eaten too much and probably burned the same amount of calories as a snail!
No gym today, because of the holiday. :( No, I am not depressed, just woke up this morning feeling very bloated, frustrated and tired. Working on my second cup of coffee and praying for some energy to revitalize me today. Yes, I know that I should continue to get up early and go for a walk or pull out the workout DVD, but it just doesn't happen on weekends. It doesn't help that it is overcast outside and Pooh will probably want to sit around and watch movies all day. I will have to try and resist. Maybe I will go outside and wash the car, rake the yard or find some other activity to do instead. I don't really know yet. :(
I have to tell ya'll that I feel really guilty when I don't watch movies with him or just sit around and talk on the weekends. I work long hours all week and have very little time left each day for him. Since his cancer diagnosis, he really doesn't have a lot of energy to go places and be active, so he spends a lot of time indoors. This does not make room for spending time together AND burning calories. So, I try to get the most exercise that I can during the week to enable me to spend inactive time at home on weekends. Honestly, I am afraid that one day soon he will not be here and I will regret not watching those weekend movies with him. I know that dreaded day will come all too soon.
Alright, I am finished whining now and starting to feel better and more awake. Off to tidy up the house and cook some brunch for Pooh! Thanks for listening. :)
