Unmotivated Today

Saturday, March 02, 2013

I woke up later than usual today......with the plan to get to the Y this morning, but am unmotivated to go out in the snow and jump on the treadmill. I know I shouldnt, but I am taking the day off. I, along with my husband and father, are adjusting - or trying to adjust - to our new family grouping. It is easy to have my Dad around, but hard to see him as frail and depressed as he is at this point in his life. The loss of my mother has turned his world upsidedown! I am working hard to make things confortable for him, as is my husband, but we can't take away the pain.

In the process, I have been very erratic in participating and tracking my food here st SP and am now committed to getting that aspect of my life back in order. emoticon

    Good luck with the transition. My in-laws have been living with us for almost a year. It sent everything into a tail spin. Life can be hard. It is sad to watch parents suffer. I wish you the best of luck during this time of life.

  Hope things improve during the day for you. I know snow and cold doesn't help.
Best wishes for you to feel better.

Remember, a calorie burned by exercising at home is the same as one burned at the gym!
