Being Overwhelmed Is So Not An Excuse
Saturday, November 03, 2012
Just checking in. I've been so busy that I have not blogged for like a month and I have been lax about checking in with my SparkFriends on a daily basis, but I have been logging on and tracking my food and fitness daily.
This seems to be one of the busier times of the year for me. My golf league has ended for the season, but now I am preparing for a Christmas concert, a musical, I am wrapping up my year of training and agility trials really start up again in this area (seems like there are barely any in the summer, unless I want to travel 6-10 hours away).
I was looking at some of the bootcamps and 5K training programs on Spark (and elsewhere) and would really like to do some, but in most cases they want you to put aside 20-40 minutes three times a week to do specific things that "they" want you to do. I had a hard time finding more than once a week that I could dedicate to myself. Not that there aren't other times that I would be doing something active...just not the assigned task. Anyway, I put that on hold, at least until next week or so, I should have a few days starting to open up (a class ending, my last club meeting for the year (& two more board meetings).
So, because I hadn't started anything, maintained my weight for the week and had some meal planning issues today, I totally blew off anything that I had worked for and ate for crap (oh and had a beer!! notable only because I don't like beer). I was still right around 2,000 calories, which wouldn't be horrible on an active day, but my activity today was a couple of loads of laundry and cleaning in the spare bedroom (it's about to become my holiday wrap center and storage).
I did try to get some outdoor fun in, but was underdressed for the cold and had to return home (my hands were turning an unnatural color).
Tomorrow I will be getting some running in with Mr. B...not alot, but some. I will see what I can fit in to supplement. I was suppose to go to brunch with DH's family, but somehow times got mixed up and there is no way that I can make both brunch (out to a buffet) and my run session with B. I am trying to be positive about it and just remind myself that I didn't need to be subjected to a buffet (I pretty much did that today already anyway LOL).
Well, that's what I've been up to. Have a great week everyone.
