The beast was definitely tamed this week...and giving permission

Friday, February 15, 2013

Yesterday, I went home just exhausted. I'd been averaging about 5 hours of sleep every night, and had a busy workweek, and just came home pooped. To add to that, I got out of work late on Tuesday night, so only did Zumba, not my 30 minute Couch to 5K. I planned to try to do it on Wednesday, but it didn't work with all of the things I needed to do, so again, I just did Zumba. I decided I'd run outside yesterday, so I could be home at a reasonable time and get to bed early. It poured all day yesterday, so that didn't happen. What's a girl to do? I napped for an hour, a wonderful blessed hour. I will start up my Couch to 5K training again on Sunday as tonight I have to pick up my husband at the airport after Zumba and there is no time to run before. Tomorrow, I have Zumba in the morning and a special fund raising 90 minute Zumba in the afternoon (to raise money for our Relay for Life Zumbathon in March). So with that and walking the dog, I'll have done all I can. But Sunday will be in the low 60's here in Southwest Florida and should be a beautiful day to run outside. Rather than stress about it any more, I'm just moving it to Sunday. I think that was a good decision. In the past I would have killed myself to get everything in and gotten even less sleep.

And....for the first week since my husband began his new position, I did not do any emotional overeating. The past five weeks I had at least one day where I totally blew it. I'm really proud of myself. The temptation was certainly there, and the emotions, but I stayed strong...and proud.

    Congrats on not emotionally over-eating! That's a great thing to overcome. Hopefully this week you're able to make it a streak!

    Wow, what a busy schedule. Good of you to recognize that exhausting yourself isn't good either.

    Thanks for the reminder that this is LIFE, not a diet. I had to chuckle when you said you ***just*** did zumba and not your couch to 5K....a zumba session in the middle of a hectic, crazy day is quite an accomplishment!
