Weekly Update

Saturday, May 29, 2010

This was a tough week...had a few ups but quite a few downs...from work to family and of course, the battle of nutrition & fitness. I didn't take the opportunities available to me to run or work out because I used the stress as an excuse. What's more or my fitness? To me my family is more important...always...but I believe the exercise would have helped physically AND emotionally, so I must remember this in case something like this happens in the future.

Good news, yesterday was a great day with my family and it looks as if today will be the same...hope so!

Sorry for whining - just feels good to let it out.

Wishing you all a great Memorial Day weekend!

    Fitness and family - sometimes it is hard to balance, isn't it? However, a skipped day or two won't derail you. You'll be back on track soon. :) Glad you had a good weekend with your family!

    Yes, sometimes when it comes to family or fitness I have found that fitness helps me feel and act better around my family. It helps keep me sane and happy. And when I know I am taking care of myself it helps me take better care of my family. We just have to find the happy medium!

    Hope you had a good Memorial Weekend. I for one am glad its over. I am now in recovery mode from all the food I ate. But today is a new day and the start of a new month and I am looking forward to my run this morning!

    Yep, that stress you are talking about is probably what got most of us overweight. For years I chose my family over me and now I have been paying the price. To be happy and healthy for your family, you will need to put yourself first more often. I wish that I had started taking care of me sooner. When under stress I wish that I had exercised, but instead I ate (like most people do) when I was stressed. Now that I have lost the weight, I am stronger, happier, and will be around longer for my family.

    Keep working at it. Don't give up. Exercise really does relieve stress. Try to find a happy medium between family and taking care of yourself. The longer you wait to get healthy, the longer it will take you to be healthy.

    Jason, it's an appropriate place to whine. We sure do understand the battles you face!

    Enjoy your family this weekend!

    Have a good Memorial Day. Stress is put upon us to make us stronger, but it really sucks sometimes.
