Pushing to stay on track today...

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Feeling blah today--and just been feeling worn lately. The three kiddos have been bickering, and everything around the house is waiting for me to get it done, or for me to start nagging-- which is something I really try not to do. I love my family, but I really need a weekend away. I'm fighting hard not to eat this stress away, and learn that these situations are separate from the goals I want to achieve for my healthy self.

Feel a bit better just from venting this out.

    It's good to write!
It's great to know our weaknesses, like you spoke of regarding nagging.
When we know what we are doing, and don't like it, we can change!

    We are battling cabin fever here. The kids can't go out because its either too wet & thunderstorms (yes, in January - crazy weather) or its been too stinking cold. So today for #2 snow day of the WEEK emoticon I made up a "fitness trail" - home style. We have a similar one at school for kids to do when they need that extra break & I thought why not do one at home.

I had 3 different trails at various times of the day. I burned up some calories, got my bonus burn in for the day & the kids did it with me. emoticon Get this, they both liked it and for each 20 minute session I heard no bickering! emoticon

Now they are back playing again! emoticon
