This and that........

Friday, April 12, 2013

Well, I'm inconsistently trying to be consistent!! Not working so well yet. I track food for a couple of days, get in my exercise and then I don't for 3-4 days. I know it's all excuses. I am still watching what I eat but being more consistent with the workouts is more difficult for me. I will get it but can't give up.
It seems I have been so busy with annoying tasks--phone calls, scheduling, etc. Not getting basics accomplished like house cleaning! it's frustrating but all those tasks need to be done also and most of them have a "due date". Oh, well, so it goes.
I've been feeling good but my sleep has been erratic! ARGH! I know once I get back into routine, the sleep will probably improve. Although looking at my calendar, I'm not sure if routine will be happening anytime soon!
Next week, hubby and I are off to Key West. Not anyplace I ever wanted to go but he has a speaking engagement (which means not a lot of meetings for him) so I'm going for a mini vacation! I've heard there's really not much to do there but bars. We like to have a good time but not day long drinkers for sure. Hopefully, we'll get in some walking and relaxation.
Of course, eating will still be an issue. My willpower breaks down after about 48 hours so I'll need to be careful!
I have my first dress fitting for my son's wedding 2 weeks later so there's some motivation! I can't believe this is coming up so fast now! It's down to counting days (July 20) and there still seems to be much to do before then. Of course, this time around I'm mother of the groom--much less pressure and stress!
Ha! I do keep my family on their toes. In January I took the major fall while I was with daughter and grandkids. Last week I managed to hit a parked car with her van. Yes, I was sober!!! So, I've been dealing with that for a week. They may be putting me in a home soon. LOL!!!

    So fun! Wow, I didn't realize that your son's wedding was coming up so soon. I hear ya with the consistency, sometimes I feel like I do just to undue and back again.....sign as far as exercise, it is surprisingly helpful to use the monthly fitness minute ticker with a doable goal. It's the only ticker I can get to actually move!!! emoticon

Have fun in Key West. I wish you lovely walks.

  Aw, Beth, just hang in there! You've got lots going on and I bet you can really use the mini vacation :-) Relax, take walks and just eat the best you can. You will do great. Consistently inconsistent? That's describes me to a T these day! Let's get back on track together!

    Hey, I've got an idea!! I will go with your hubby to Key West and you can stay here and ..............shovel s..... emoticon Really it isn't quite that bad but I would definitely rather go to Key West. I had a friend who lived in Marathon. The scuba diving is great there. Ocean. Sun. Lots of freaky people. Sounds good to me.

My son had his "dress rehearsal" today for his friend's wedding. Basically he just tried on his clothes looking for something that fit. Finally found a sport coat, dress shirt, tie, and a pair of pants.

Vans were meant to be battered. Ours has been it so many times we finally stopped fixing it. My son hates to drive it.

I am considering the old folks home if it means I can get some rest. LOL.

    You will feel so good if you walk, walk, walk in Florida.
And eat a lot of fish or simply grilled fish and salads.
Enjoy!

    I hope you have a good time in Key West. Also that is great about your son's wedding coming up this summer.

I know about having those kind of days! Two years ago I accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake and went over a curb. Luckily I only did damage to underneath my car, nothing else. Hang in there and I am sure things will get better.

    LOL, yes I have had those days, weeks.. They are not funny when they happen ,but looking back they are.I know you can find something to do besides bars, I would go for romantic walks and talks. Take a deep breath from your busy day, and take time for yourself. Have a day filled with no mishaps, but have a little me time and fun.
