Week 1 So far

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Well, week one has not gone as planned! Monday I did not get my run in because of several excuses. My main one was I wanted to spend the time with my son and I knew he would be going to bed early. My plan was to work out after he went to bed and of course I didn't do that. By the time he went to bed at 7 I was exhausted. I don't think I have been sleeping well either. Reality is, I would have slept better if I had worked out. Fail!

Yesterday my husband was home and I haven't seen him for more than an hour a day for the past 6 days if I saw him at all. I felt guilty about working out instead of taking time with him. Fail again.

My tracking of my eating is going well. I have actually used the tracker and it has been good. I already see some areas that are causing issues with my weight loss and that was the plan! Success!!!!

With that said, I know the rest of the week will be a struggle with working out and honestly I want to throw in the towel and pick up with running next week.We will see how it goes. I am counting the success and finding determination to continue on!!!

    FitBrit, Thanks for the comment. I actually am happy with myself but have a few things that I am working to change. Honestly, that will be the case with all of us until we aren't on earth anymore. You are right, it is an excuse to not work out but my time with my guys (my husband and son) is extremely limited. As I said, that was the first time I had seen my husband for longer than 1 hour in 6 days. That means that in a 6 day time frame, I saw him maybe an hour a day if I saw him at all. I have to work, I don't have another options but to be a full time working mom and on top of that, I am also going to school full time. My time with my son is limited too. I appreciate your comment but it isn't that I am not happy with myself but that I am accepting of some of the limitations that I have.

    Hey. I think you have a problem with putting yourself first in certain situations. I have had this problem for years. Always worrying about my children and fiance instead of getting my workout done. But in reality, you have to remember, they will still be there tomorrow. They are just another excuses to laze about. Not only that, but have you ever heard the phrase ' a happy wife and mother, makes a happy family'? You do not seem happy with yourself. Making excuses is the easy way out. You need to get control over your life, and figure out what you really want, and how bad you want it. Not to be blunt. But it upsets me when I see a woman who does not love herself enough to take care of herself. ALWAYS love yourself first. Then, you can love other people with maximum gratification. :)

    Congratulations on tracking your food. It's so easy to put it off if other aspects aren't going well. Hang in there until it all comes together!
