The last two or three weeks have been uber hectic. My mancub has just graduated from high school, and the month of May was a whirlwind of prom, awards and graduation activities. My youngest one will leave 8th grade on Monday, so we have her first real Semi-Formal dance coming up. Add in all their sports activities, and there hasn't been much time left for anything else.
So it comes as no surprise that since the 100 Days of Summer challenge started, I feel like I am gaining and losing the same pound over and over again. But I almost don't care. Because at least its ONLY a pound, and not 5 or 10. And because I have this wonderful challenge group, along with some special 40-Something ladies, I am motivated to keep checking in and doing, even if I haven't been able to do it perfectly. And the Week 5 challenge incorporated bonus points for stress busting - 20 minutes of relaxation per day-and that truly has helped me regain some of my focus as all those extra distractions come to an end.
Time constraints have been my biggest enemy to exercise, and I am anxious to get back to Zumba class tomorrow. And once I do, this SAME pound, and many more, will come off.
