Two trying weeks

Friday, April 13, 2012

There have been a plethora of reasons for why these last few weeks have been difficult and mostly, they are excuses! But, here they are... Joshua was sick and home all last week from school. It was Easter and I have a profound weakness for jelly beans and sugar cookies. I got sick. Amelia is now sick. And so, we have spent nearly all of the last two weeks inside, baking, eating and coughing and no working out.

But, I'm nipping it in the bud. Wednesday, we went to the "inside-door playground" as J likes to call it. I bought black licorice at the candy store (another weakness of mine). I ate 1/2 of the bag on the way home. I got home and realized how slippery this slope is. I am not of the personality that can throw stuff away, but I did hide it from myself. If I don't see it, I won't eat it. Even now, writing about it isn't all that challenging, its just if it is right there in my face. So, it's hidden in the back of the cupboard.

I then put Amelia in the vibrate-y chair and did a 15 min WATP. Yesterday, I did 30 min while she snoozed, including 3 min on the stairs. I'm going all the way SP and committing myself to 10 min of fitness a day! Because surely I can manage that!

Happy Friday all!!! Hope your weekend is fabulous!

    Hi Mel. I know you can do it. Guess what. I need to do it too! 10 minutes should be an easy commitment...yet it hasn't been for me. BUt I have to change that too. Hope you're doing well my friend and little Joshua and Amelia (love her name) are feeling 100%.

    Good job for nipping it in the bud!!! I have found myself sliding down that same slippery slope at times...the earlier you catch it - the better! You can do it!!!!

Hope that you and the family are feeling better!
