Maintaining goals with work and stressful situations.

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

So, I did pretty well while Erik was in the hospital and the acute care center until other stressors came into play. When my sister came, I had little problem keeping on track, she is the one who got me to try sparkpeople. However, when my almost 80 year old mother-in-law came (and I love her dearly) the shift happened. She wanted to "take care of me" which meant we ate out daily. To keep it interesting we ate Italian, Southern, Japanese, Chinese and American. Most of the time I tried to make healthy choices, but the sodium levels were out of sight.
In addition to which, my Erik went back to the hospital to have his skull flap replaced, surgery took precedence over exercise. The next day the weather did not co-operate and today I went back to work after which I went to see my son in the hospital. I walked, but I by no means met my goals. I think it is time to re-adjust my schedule to include Erik, Work AND exercise...Any suggestions?

    You do have alot on your plate (so to speak) right now so please do cut yourself some slack. That being said, when it comes to exercise and time crunch, I think in terms of 10-15 minute blocks of time. A few of those and you have an hour. I've been known to walk in my classroom for 10 minutes at lunch time. It all adds up.

    Please be kind to yourself. You don't have to be perfect. I think you are doing an awesome job here.
