Physical energy. Got it. I know that if I get my butt in gear and fuel myself properly, I can go all day (like I too frequently have to!)
Mental energy. Why my weight loss journey has stalled out in the past. The task seems to big. The journey too long. All my effort is not making a difference, etc etc... All excuses, but all discouraging.
I think that my daily goals are the biggest thing keeping me going so far. Yesterday was rough. One family thing after another and it ended up being nine at night, I was exhausted, and no work out in. (because really, if cleaning the house and chasing the kids counted, I wouldn't be fat, right?) So I cut myself a little slack, as I had been running around all day, and didn't get down on myself. And then because I couldn't let my daily exercise goal go on day 3, (!!) I did a fifteen minute workout. I give that a zero percent chance of happening before SP and daily goals.
I also realized that I need to find better ways to take care of myself with out it being another burden or task to check off. My husband has started coaching this spring, so he is getting home a lot later than he used to. I miss the little ways he would help with the family and take care of me! I have mad respect for single moms out there. My toes curl just thinking about having to do it all!!
OK, off to put my tennies on and log a serious workout today! Then kindergarten roundup. For real. How do they get so old? :)
