Consistency has left the building -- better yet has left me!

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Oh boy my consistency has fallen by the waist side. Not that I'm eating bad or anything, I'm just not being consistent. Adjusting to going back to work full time, managing a house, 3 kids & all their extra activities, a hubby who works at UPS (oh wait I don't have a hubby this month), trying to finish Xmas shopping, start wrapping, etc. my personal training clients, coordinating my boot camp classes to start in January, I'm tired. I have not been getting up an hour early in the morning to exercise. My eating has been ok - not 100% perfect but yet full of protein, veggies, fruit, whole grains.
I *know* what I have to do, but doing it is a whole other thing. It's only been 2 weeks of me back to work and I know it is an adjustment -- hello, let's just jump right to the adjustment OK?

    Hang in there, Debi! Be patient with yourself & the adjustment period of learning how best to rearrange & manage all you are juggling. Time management has & still is my biggest struggle. But everything tends to fall into place once you figure where everything goes. :)

    Going back to work is a big change. You'll hit your groove soon. Try not to stress about it and just do what you can. Make sure to take the time for you because you need it!

    Wow, your hands are full,
    no wonder you feel it is exhausting to do it all right.
    Going back to full time by itself is a big challenge.
    Be positive about yourself, you deserve it!

    One Spark Friend in a similar situation made a list of priorities, decided what is absolutely necessary and took it easy on all other items.

    Good luck!

    Lol! I like that "lets just jump right to the adjustment..." I wish it was super easy like that.

    You'll probably hear this a lot, but dont be too hard on yourself. Balance it probably the best thing to strive for in life even though that balance may feel like a high-wire act sometimes. Do what you can on a daily basis and keep in mind that this too shall pass....

    It's so easy to get side-tracked this time of year. Life gets too busy. It's a hit and miss, exercise whenever you can time right now. If you're like me, you're just trying to keep your head above water. Hang in there!

    There is a big difference between being inconsistent because of self-sabotage and dealing with an overly crazy load in your life around the holidays.

    You hang tuff. This too shall pass.
