Finding "me" time is difficult this time of year!

Friday, December 20, 2013

I was so tired yesterday that I had no motivation to do anything. The day didn't start off that way but things just caught up with me. It got me thinking about how I am going to get through the next 10 days without losing every ounce of motivation that I am clinging to right now.
I have got to find some "me" time and that is very difficult when all of my children are back in the house. Since the ones who are out of town fly in for the holiday, they take my car or they want me to go with them when they go out. I love spending time with them, but I need that hour to get to the gym by myself. It's too cold to walk outside and someone always decides to sleep on the basement couch rather than their bedroom so I can't do a workout dvd.
Food has bee a real challenge for me lately and I do not want to take a complete break over the holidays so I need to set a little time aside today to plan out some healthy food choices. Again, there's so many other things to do I have a hard time finding time to sit down and do that. Yes, I know I could be doing it right now rather than writing this blog, but my blog is my outlet for me to wrap my mind around things.
Anyway, I know I am blessed to have all of my kids in town (even though one of my daughters has been home this week and has to leave Sunday because she is a reporter and has to work on Christmas). I know I am blessed to have a home and family and resources to provide a nice holiday for them. I'm certainly not complaining about the work or the lack of "me" time. I just can't afford to take a break from the healthy habits I have been working on acquiring and it's up to me to figure out a way to avoid that.


Have a great weekend SP!!!

    Make sure you take some me time. Children can be draining.

    its never easy but you can do it! lock yourself in the bathroom and take a long relaxing bath with some good music. I find that even that 20 minutes helps me-even if its the only little thing I can do!

  Love the Freggies notation. Anyway, just do your exercise. If someone has crashed on the couch, then they can just join in if they wish. I think you will be surprised at how much support you get from your children when you are doing this very healthy thing.
