End of the Week

Friday, February 15, 2013

It's the end of the week and overall I have had a very decent week. I have stayed on track as far as my nutrition goes, I got physical activity in nearly every day, work went smoothly and all is good. But like everyone else, I do get frustrated at times. I think it is just because I am really tired. I work hard, I get my exercise in, I plan my meals and have been cooking at home. But I am getting behind on my other day to day chores around the house and I never have time to do any of my hobbies because I am just bogged down with stuff that I need to do! So I wonder how I am supposed to fit MORE exercise in, how I am supposed to get enough sleep! We are supposed to do all of this to be healthy, and for our emotional and mental health, we are supposed to spend time with family and friends. Oh my goodness, when would I squeeze that in? I already get up at 4:30 a.m. and go to work. It is ALWAYS at least 5:00 p.m. and often as late as 7:00 p.m. before I get home, and then we have to eat and all of that. I want to get to bed earlier and I am trying really hard to do that but only one time this week did I get seven hours of sleep. I still feel good about all of this, but I am just trying to figure out how people manage all of this! I want to keep this momentum going and I don't want to get burned out because I am trying to do too much!

    It is frustrating some days. I aim for at least 10 minutes, anything beyond that I consider bonus minutes! emoticon

    Oh, I so hear you on this: "So I wonder how I am supposed to fit MORE exercise in, how I am supposed to get enough sleep! We are supposed to do all of this to be healthy, and for our emotional and mental health, we are supposed to spend time with family and friends." Wish I knew the answer.
