Well it has been a pretty good week. And today will be great...my son is coming home. Now he's coming home to get his wisdom teeth out. And if you have older kids maybe you can relate to this. We don't wish our kids to be sick or hurting...but honestly deep down I do enjoy that time. And this is why...he hasn't needed me for a long time. In fact most of the time he doesn't even really want to talk to me. But if he is sick and hurting, he will need his mommy to take care of him and I can't wait!! Plus as some of you know, I have been terribly worried about him. He in turn has pretty much just stopped answering my calls. He texts me daily so I know he's alive, but we have had very little converstation time this month and it is driving me insane. Last week I was so anxious regarding him I didn't sleep good all week. I am trying to let go some of my worry and let him deal with his school ect...but sometimes it is hard. So you see...i'm looking forward to this visit immensley!!!
My one issue with him coming home is he starts taking up all my space where I work out. He takes over the living room, usually even sleeps there. So I have to get home tonight and get some cardio in before he gets home. Then warn him that at 6 am I am out there to do yoga. We'll see if he sleeps on the couch tonight...LOL! He'll throw my whole schedule out of whack, but I'll love having him home for a few days!!!
On another note...I have been really stressing about not losing anything lately. I'm done stressing about it. I know I am looking better, I am losing inches, I have more energy and I feel great. I'm not going to double up my workout schedule and over work myself to try to get over this hump. It will come. I want to continue to do stuff that I know I can keep up for a long time and things that I enjoy. I'm afraid if I do super heavy workouts for a bit, yea I might get over the plateau, but I'll also not enjoy it so much. I am changing my life...and it is a long term change, not just a few months until I lose the weight. So I am going to keep on doing what I am, eating healthy, getting some movement in daily and see what happens. I'm sure eventually that evil scale will work it's way down...and I'm ok with that!!! And if it doesn't...I'm not going to start eating unhealthy or stop working out. I love the new life I am finding...ain't no going back now!!! You all have an amazing day!!!
