Need to Re-Focus, Still Struggling with Balance in my Life!

Thursday, February 17, 2011


This week hasn't been that good with my eating or exercising. I feel like I can't get into any kind of rhythm. I think I am going to end my personal training sessions b/c I am not able to give 100% on my eating or workouts with my cardio. So I feel like I am just wasting money at this point. I am just tired. I now know what "soccer moms" feel like. My life seems to be in dismay right now. I know that mother's across the world manage life, work, kids, & a spouse but I just have learned how yet.

I need to figure it out before I am 300 pounds, still trying to figure out how to gain control over my life with eating & exercising consitently. I know what needs to be done but getting it done, hasn't been easy. Of course, I know it's not easy but I just need to find a grip on how to make it work in my life. I finally got DVR, in hopes that now I can go to bed early & workout in the morning's before I go to work.

I am off Friday thru Monday & I hope I find a way to re-center & re-focus. Well I hope this weekend will give me good reflection time.

On a good note, Isaiah (my oldest son) had a good cross country race emoticon yesterday. He came in 14th place (out of 50 kids) & his time went up a little bit to 11 minutes & 30 seconds. He was wearing 3 shirts..LOL.. So all the layers, started to weigh him down..LOL..

Hope everyone has a GREAT Day!! emoticon

    It's such a challenge to be a working, single mom! I read some of your blogs, and it's obvious you're investing all the energy and time you possibly can so that your sons become fit and healthy young men... and from what I read, they're well on their way.

    I'm glad that you'll have a couple days to reflect and refocus. I read somewhere, "Are you living life or is life living you?" It's easy for you to become overwhelmed with all the responsibilities you have. There are no easy answers. You're the only one who can find what works for you and your family. Preparing healthy meals. Fitness. I had to have a heart attack before I smartened up. You're still young and healthy. I hope that you find a way to put yourself and your health on your own agenda so that your sons can have their wonderful mom for many years to come!

    My week has been terrible food and exercise due to a fatal family accident. I know I will get it back I just need to be patient. Good luck to you.

    You know I feel you. As busy as we are, we have to remember to do this for us. It takes hard work to be a good mom & family, but making good choices is the hard work we do for us. You can do it. Everyday is not going to be the best, or perfect.
    My little daily inspiration today really hit home with me and maybe you too :
    The Little choices we must make / Will chart the course of life we take / We either choose the path of light / or wander off in darkest night - D De Haan.

    YOU CAN DO IT DIVA! emoticon

    Some good reflection time sounds like just what you need. Refocus and re-energize. It isn't always easy, but it is definitely worth it. Keep trying. You will get it!

    I hear you! I'm in the same funk...and no longer have children to wear me out. Maybe it was the birthday this week..or stress as I worry about adult children. Each day I start with good intentions and then lose it mid day. I will make it through the entire day tomorrow!!!

    When my kids were young, working out in the morning in my pajamas and tennis shoes was the only to get it done. Maybe it will work for you too. Just a little bit (even 10 minutes if that's all you have time for at first) will help! Hang in there!

    I have so much respect for mothers going through the process of making healthy decisions for them and their families! Keep with it and I know you will achieve your goals!
