Hanging in there!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I stayed about the same with my weight. I've been ok with my eating. We've been sticking with the menu, so I've had some pretty healthy dinners. My breakfast & lunch is always healthy during the week and my weekends have been so busy, I don't really have time to over indulge (although I do manage to get in that late night snacking!).

Exercise has been almost non-existent this past week. The last time I ran was last Wednesday. Thursday was a marathon shopping night. I left right after work and "shopped until I dropped"! I was gone for 4.5 hours and hit 13 stores! I got a lot done. I'm counting this as exercise though because it was a lot of walking! I wasn't in a mall, I went to 3 differenct strip malls. So I parked in the middle of a parking lot and walked the length. My feet actually hurt when I got home! Friday & Saturday were spent cleaning, driving & wrapping! DD#1 had to work Friday & Saturday, DD#3 had play practice for 4.5 hours on Saturday and DD#2 had a basketball game at a HS an hour away. I don't even remember what I ate that day, but I know I skipped lunch!

We had an unplanned get together with my family on Sunday. My 2 sisters came over earlier in the day to finalize the plans for our extended family party on 12/16 (we're in charge for some reason!) and then I left to pick up DD#1's boyfriend and then go to a meeting at church for our live nativity on 12/23 (fortunately I was so busy, I missed the horrible Falcon's game and also lunch!). When I got back home, my niece was coming by with her new baby! So everyone came back to my house and we had a pizza party!

This week so far has been insane! DD#2 had a bad basketball game on Tuesday (she was really disappointed in herself - she missed a lot of scoring opportunities, but so did everyone else - she's really hard on herself) Anyway, they don't have practice tonight and she wants to run and practice shooting. Again, I have a shopping tripped planned (this time with DD#1), so DH will have to take her. She has early practice tomorrow, so she wants to run after school. I'm determined to go tomorrow!

DD#1 wants her boyfriend to go paintballing with her and some friends on Saturday and guess who has to pick him up?! I'm not sure what she's planning, but DD#2's has a home game @ 2, so maybe I can squeeze in some exercise!

Sunday is our extended family party (about 45 people), so I will be busy setting up, partying and cleaning up (we've reserved a clubhouse, so at least it's not at my house!). It will be a long day!

I'm determined to maintain, get in some running (and ST, but that's not working too well) the rest of the year. I'll hit the new year with a vengeance to get rid of the 6+ lbs. I'm still planning to do the 2 5k's in February even if I have to walk some of it! I only work 4 days next week and then I'm off for 12 days. I'll be busy, but I should get in some exercise!

I'm hanging in there!
