Well so far my journey has been a major struggle. I'm finding it very hard to balance work, personal life, a good diet and exercise all together in one happy motion. My husband is working full time and going to school full time so that leave ALL the house work up to me. The cooking, cleaning, preparing meals for breakfasts, lunches, and supper is starting to take it's toll. I can not wait til the day he graduates. I have started treating work that I do around the house as exercise (especially if I can't make it to the gym because of work or personal stuff). I will actually put on my workout clothes and my heart rate monitor and calculate my calories burned. Watching my diet is even harder, I just get so tired of cooking and cleaning that I sucker myself into getting fast food so I can just sit at home and relax for once. That is making it hard to lose weight. I sometimes wish I had the money to afford a house cleaner just so I don't have to worry about that anymore. Work has been eating up a lot of my time too with working overtime and trying to get projects done within my deadlines.
To add to the stress levels I've signed up for a 10K race later this summer. Which means I need to get out there and actually train. I think once I get into the habit it won't be so bad, it's just the transition.
We'll see how the next few months go....I just want to get the weight off but its such a roller coaster of a life right now it's just hard.
