After recommitting myself to loosing weight yesterday I didn't start out the rest of my day, mainly the evening, with the best of food choices. Well supper started out ok....it consisted of mainly fish and veggies and a few homemade baked spiced potato wedges (baked, never fried). Actually supper was quite healthy and very delicious if I do say so myself. LOL! Later on in the evening I began to get hungry again so I had a handful of chips and then finished off the chocolate ice cream. Yep my will power sucks.
I'm finding it very hard to find time for me to get in exercise, that's the worst part for me. Since my husband passed away almost 4 months ago (and about 6 months even before that) most of my time and energy is focused on work and making sure the kids have as normal as a life as possible. Before my husband's cancer came back he would tell me to work on myself and he'd run the kids around when needed. No my kids aren't little they're 15 and 12 but I want to cherish this time I have left with them living under my roof because in all honesty in 3 years time my life will most likely change again as my son may end up moving away for college / university. Right now its not all roses and sunshine in our house as they're both teens and going through normal emotional teen issues on top of loosing their Dad; many times there's more chaos instead of peaceful harmony (like I'll ever know what that's like ha ha). Bottom line is I just need to find and make the time for myself to get in some exercise.....and there's NO WAY I'm going to work out before I go to work. I hate mornings and in order for me to do that I'd have to be up at 5 am. As it is I do well to get 5 hours sleep a night so there's no way I'm not cutting out any sleep time. I'm thinking I'll have to do short spurts of exercise here and there where I can fit it in. Any ideas? I just need some inspiration.
