Sticking with my new habits- Most of the time
Monday, May 30, 2011
The month of May has been a real test of my new healthier living habits- TO SAY THE LEAST!
With a week of turmoil and broken house, a week of vacation, then a week of contractors- I can say "I have changed my ways". I've not eaten as well as I was when I could track everything I ate on a daily basis, but I've not done too bad either. Mostly, I have made good choices at meal time. My workouts have been sporadic, but I have managed to do at least 3 sessions each week.
Considering that my family is living in a hotel right now while construction goes on in the house; I am back and forth all day working with contractors and taking care of business in general; not to mention finishing the school year with the boys- I think I'm doing just fine on the "taking care of me" side.
We probably have another week and a half of construction at the house. I don't do well when my "normal" life is in such upheaval.
I will tell you that I am sooooo glad to have found and started SP when I did. Living through this last month as unhealthy as I was 6 months ago would not have been good. I'm not sure that I'd have made it. Now, I have the energy to get it all done (although I am exhausted at day's end) and my blood pressure has been perfect.
I don't know, I feel like I'm rambling here. I just wanted you all to know that I'm surviving this ordeal a lot better than I would have before I made some health changes in my life, AND I feel like those changes are sticking as I am clinging to them in a time of great stress.
My husband keeps saying "By 4th of July this will all be a memory". I can't wait!
Stay Strong, SparkFriends.
