Weekend Reflection

Monday, March 08, 2010

I got up early today to work out but I have a slight headache. I WILL workout tonight instead. No excuses but having fexibility in my plan. I was just reflecting on my weekend and I feel thankful for so many things about my weekend!

1. A good start to the Spring Challenge. Go Lady Bugs! emoticon
2. Accomplishing a no tv day with my family on Saturday. We spend the day riding bikes. emoticon
3. Enjoying the wonderful weather. It can be so motivating for me! emoticon
4. Hearing my son say "I love you sweetie mom"
5. Hearing my son's thoughtful prayer before dinner on Sunday!
6. Eatting at home for every meal this weekend - no takeout!!! emoticon
7. Shopping for some new clothes/shoes!
8. Drinking 8 cups of water each day this weekend! This is a tough one for me!
9. Watching my husband and son playing frisbee and tag. My husband is such a great father. Of course, I joined in after watching all the fun they were having.
10. Making healthly pancakes with apple topping on Saturday morning with help from son and husband!

I could go on but need to get ready for work. Time to get motivated and excited for the week ahead.

  I read your blog from Monday morning and it reminded me of when I had small children and had to work long hours and I also had an hour drive each way to work. My youngest son is now 22 and I no longer work. The time flew by so fast and I miss the time I had when my children were young. Savor each moment for before you know, your children are grown. They make great exercise partners when they are young, I know mine did. They loved the time we spent together taking walks down our long dirt road after I got home from work and on weekends, as much as I did. emoticon

Trouble Goal

Friday, April 10, 2009

One trouble goal of mine... that is easy. Fitting in time for exercise. Among working full time, taking care of my family, ensuring my husband gets his fitness time, community groups I belong to, and church activities there is never enough time in the day. I know I just need to make exercise a priority but I just can't for some reason. I am just stuck on this one. I am almost half way to my goal weight, the weather is getting warmer, it is getting lighter earlier in the morning so what better time to start.
