October 2, 2012 really struggling

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I've been really struggling lately. I can (occasionally) squeeze in a work out - and yes, it's squeezing it in or I can manage to eat right for (maybe) a day or two - then I get thrown a curve and it all thrown out the window, plus I can't seem to get both the fitness and the eating on the same page at the same time. My sweet tooth has come back in full force.

Home life has been crazy trying to adapt to the kid's practice scehdules. Work is even worse...

    I am in the same boat as you are! It is so frustrating isn't it? When you find a solution that works, let me know! I'll do the same! I have 2 little kids (4 and 18 months) and I can't seem to find time or energy for me. To top it off, I am an emotional eater...I eat for comfort. Good luck with it. One suggestion: don't give up! One day it has to get easier and come together, right?!

    I have kids in dance (competition). It is hard, and hectic, and crazy! But we can do this. We are worth this! We deserve this happiness!!!!

    I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.’Maya Angelou

    Obstacles don't have to stop you.
    If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
    I know life can get very busy and stressful the biggest thing to remember is that this journey is a one day at time can planning your meals on the week end do some batch cooking like they talk about in the cooking challenge. maybe 10 minutes works at a time in the evening between TV shows those ten minutes add up fast .

    And you think you are alone in this - why? Anyone who has kids probably experiences some of this - I know we do. Ideas:

    1. Drink the Sparky water no matter what, every day.

    2. Get impulse foods out of your house.

    3. Buy healthy snack options at the grocery store - keep some on-hand in your desk or in the car.

    4. Park far and walk it. Take the stairs.

    5. Use your weekends judiciously.

    Hang in there!
