So I've been suffering from severe lack of motivation this week.
It's not really surprising; those of you who follo wmy blog know that last week was stressful, exhausting, and not at all fun. I'm resting to recuperate from that, and I refuse to feel badly about it.
I'm also getting REALLY busy... the busy season has started, and I have SO MUCH to do. It's a good thing, since it means more money, but man, do I have little time for workouts and such. I will make time, though; I'm starting next week... I've got no time this week (I even took some laundry to wash and fold.)
However, I have made a pledge that my family will do something active together every weekend, even if it's just going to the park to walk, shoot bows, fly kites, eat a picnic lunch, something. I enjoyed doing that with my girls while my husband is in the hospital, and I think i would be good for ALL of us to unplug, get moving, and spend quality time together.
I saw something so terrible yesterday while we were out eating dinner. I saw a family of four, a mom, dad, daughter, and sonn. The kids were probably between 12-14. Every one of them was obese. It broke my heart because they spent the entire time ignoring each other, playing with mobile devices. The only time they talked was when the food was set in front of them, as they were arguing over who would get what. Watching the daughter try to talk to her mom as she shoved wads of whipped cream into her mouth made me want to cry.
The only thing the mom OR dad said the whole time? "Stop! You're not going to play my game! Leave me alone!"
What's the point of going out to eat if you're not going to actually TALK to the people you're eating with?
