Monday and Tuesday were rough. Already dealing with keeping the kids busy this first month of summer vacation. Sometimes though, trying to care for my son and eating right are so hard. Time is a valued luxury. Adding to the stress is getting the outside siding of our house replaced and doing some minor remodeling. With so much going on, I am tired. I have stolen....literally stolen time to work out, but my mind is so preoccupied during, that I don't feel rejuvenated afterwards like before. Just tired. Yesterday my son cried almost all day. He gets stressed easily and doesn't like to be alone. My reprieve came when my husband came home and took him for a long walk outside. His wheelchair is heavy and after working out, running an errand and caring for him all day long....I just didn't have anymore energy to spare at 7 pm. It also rained here during the day, which is why I didn't take him outside earlier. I skipped lunch yesterday so I was famished while making dinner. I ate well then and slept soundly last night. Today seems calmer. Just finished working out and my son is in a good mood so far. Hope it continues. This was the main reason I always put off a weight loss program. Just the stress and pressure to keep the committment is enough to drive anyone nuts sometimes. More later.
