The upside to my husband being out of town
Monday, February 22, 2010
My husband has been traveling a lot for his job. At first it really got me down because I don't work, so I would just hang around at home all alone while he was gone. I decided that had to stop before I really found myself in a bad, dark place.
The last couple of weeks I've discovered something good about him not being here...I have been able to stick to my healthy eating habits - I don't have to worry about whether he will like it or not. I've also used his being gone as motivation to get to the gym more often. I've been dropping him off at the airport every Monday morning and then since I'm up and its early, I go to the gym. That's good, but the best part is, if I start my week out that way, I'm really motivated to continue doing things right for the rest of the week.
I sure miss him when he's not here, but I'm trying my best to make it a positive experience. Now if I can just keep it up on the weekends when he's home!
