The best laid plans . . .
Monday, January 21, 2013
My "week" runs Wed/Wed. I had plans to finish off last week and run Monday & Wednesday and do ST on Tuesday. My "new week" started on Thursday. That would have been 3 days of running/walking and 2 days of ST. Guess what, I didn't do it! I did run on Wednesday, so I had 2 days of running and 1 day of ST.
Thursday started off crazy with having to take DD#1 to the orthopaedic (she's been experiencing severe knee pain) and then having to work late. DH had to take our part of the "team dinner" to the high school. We had some bad weather move in Thursday night and our school system delayed opening 2 hours on Friday. I did take advantage of that and instead of sleeping late, did some ST! I also ran Friday after work with DH and then played some Bball with DH & DD#2.
The weekend was pretty much a bust with major driving of the kids on Saturday, DD#1 had to work, DD#2 had a basketball game & DD#3 had a party to go to. I did manage to do a little laundry/cleaning, both no exercise! My plan was to pick up DD#2 Sunday morning (she was spending the night) and we were both going to run. I had to end up picking up DD#1's boyfriend (long story) and by the time I got back home, I was starving and it was almost time to watch football!
I'm really not that concerned with my exercise. I'm pretty active and with DH & DD#2, I usually end up running 2-3 times a week. I'm also getting better at the ST (1 day is better than none) and still just need to find something I'll stick to.
My main concern right now is getting the eating back in control I thought about going back to Weight Watchers to get back to the accountability. I'm 9 lbs. over goal! DH would be pretty mad having to pay for something (that I should be getting for free since I became a Lifetimer). One good thing that would come out of it is when Mama is eating right, so is the rest of the family and I take the time to work with the family and come up with healthy dinners. Why do I have to "pay" to do this? I'm not sure!! You think I would have learned by now?!
Anyway, DH and I are going to run right after work. It's going to be a nice day, so we're planning to run outside. Neither one of us have the day off, but the kids are out of school. DD#1 has to work, DD#2 has basketball practice and DD#3 has Girl Scouts. We can drop off DD#1, run and then take the other 2! That takes care of a work out, but what about dinner?
Life is hectic, but never dull!
On a sad note (for me anyway). My beloved Falcons lost on Sunday so there goes my Super Bowl dreams! I really hate both the teams that won, so maybe I won't even watch. The good news is football season is over. That's really the only sport I watch (besides DD#2), so that frees up my Sunday afternoons!
