Wii Fit (& other fitness) Week 7

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I'm going to do my best at not beating myself up.... but I've been pretty bad about my fitness this week. I think the worst thing is that I think about it, that I need and want to do something, but somehow life gets in the way.

I was sick the first part of the week, which completely drained me. Then Wednesday I had my 3rd Physical Therapy appointment. I felt really good so I really put in the effort. They gave me a few more exercises to add to my routine. Thursday was my 5 yr anniversary w/ my boyfriend and Friday and Saturday just got away from me! (Well, Friday I did go for a 2+ mile walk.) Seems like I'd have more time if my apartment would clean itself....

I think it comes down to me being overwhelmed. There is so much I do that when it all needs to be done at once I flake out. Plus, my weigh-in last week is looking like a fluke. I must have been dehydrated or something. *sigh* I know they say if this was easy we'd all be satisfied with ourselves. How do you find consistency without diving into obsession?

    Ok girl, I'm going to be a bit harsh here....but stop making excuses for not working out! I know life can come at you hard sometimes but if you are dedicated you will find the time for fitness. There are ways to make it happen! In fact at 8 months pregant working out is what gives me the energy to do everything else I need to in life(and you know I am OCD when it comes to keeping my house clean).If I don't get up and move, but instead relax like everyone tells me to then I would just feel crappy and like an old lady and would never get anything done. Granted at this point in the pregnancy I do need to slow down a bit because I do get winded but working out has been my savior!! I can counter argue every single one of your excuses above. Just do it!! And since you have Wii Fit you don't even need to leave your apt!!!

    ok- Sorry for being so blunt but we need to look out for each other :-)

    I here ya sister! It always seems like when I take time for myself the rest of the stuff that needs to be taken care of just piles up. I haven't quite found my balance yet either.-----amy emoticon
