As you all know, life does intervene from time to time with our plans. The past couple of weeks have been crazy busy. As a result, my fitness routine and nutrition plan have suffered. I wouldn't say that I have "lost ground". I have still managed to get in my fitness minutes, but it has been a challenge.
It all started innocently enough with a faculty meeting after school. Then, there was a Leadership meeting, a student needing me to stay late to help him register for his ACT, a student who missed the bus (we had to wait over an hour for mom to show up), late paperwork, school board presentation...not to mention the county fair, Girl Scout meeting, 4-H meetings, and football games...
I dearly love all of the above mentioned things/people, but I am a creature of habit. I like to stay an hour after work to return phone calls/emails and then come home. If I didn't work out in the morning, I squeeze it in before dinner. That proves difficult when you don't get home until LONG after dinner!
Not trying to complain, I just like my time to be "my" time. It took me a long time to reach that point, and I don't feel selfish. I firmly believe I deserve it and that I need it!
Guess that's why I get "grumpy" when I don't get it!
