Thrown off my game

Sunday, April 14, 2013

So this week has been a different kinda week. I feel so thrown off my game. Tuesday we (my little family) went over to my boyfriends best friends house and had dinner with his family. We ended up staying till four in the morning. Needless to say, I considered it a cheat night cause of what they fixed for dinner. When we all got back home at five me and my man stayed up talkin till time for me to be at work at eight. I figured when I got off at four that I could take a small nap, then wake up to cook dinner and exercise. That didnt go as planned. I slept pretty much until time to go to work the next day. Missed dinner and everything. My two loves just pigged out on the cereal.

I can't seem to get it back together. I have stayed tired for the rest of the week, falling asleep at random times, and haven't stayed awake to exercise since. It feels like i need a fire lit under my tail. Even this weekend, me and him stayed in bed all weekend since it is my exhusbands weekend with our daughter. We watched movies and cuddled and laughed and just had an awesome time, even did a few tickle wars hahaha. But my eating habits were atrocious. So now it feels like I have gained five pounds back I wouldn't change this weekend cause it was so much fun, like a special moment, but I need to get back on my game, I feel so thrown off.

Like just a week ago I was doing so good, now I'm tryin to get it back.

I have to fix it today. Maybe get my nails done just for me :) then jog a few miles.

Just sucks to feel so thrown off, like you have to choose between an awesome time with friends and health/fitness/weight loss

    You have to do what works for you. I can't do the start small approach or I will never get on track. I have to STOP THINKING so much about WHAT I need to do and just do it. Because I know what I can do, I know what works for me, so it's more of a doing kind of thing. I got over the "I need to wait until Monday" bit too, because every choice matters, Monday is not magical. But anyways, I'm sure you know what works for you, just believe in yourself and make it happen! I know you can do it!! emoticon

    I agree with SHELLYGON321. When you get off track, you can't just fling yourself back to where you were. You need to make small goals to work back up to where you were. Start small. Do a little exercise here and there throughout your day. Maybe a race with your bf and daughter when you are in the parking lot to see who gets to the store first. My dad used to do that with my brother and I growing up and even though there was no way us little ones were going to win, it was still fun! When my game gets thrown off sleep wise, it takes me awhile to get that sleep back and I'm tired for awhile, but I rest up and then slowly get back in my routines. It can be done. Just take it slow and keep moving forward. Good luck!

    That does suck! You can get back on track. When I feel thrown off like that, I set a few small goals to try to get back on track. So tonight, (if I were feeling how it seems you are feeling) I would make myself go to bed at 9 so I can get up at 7 and work out (because that's my plan, and that's usually where I mess up when my sleeping habits get screwy!!) So figure out something that you can do to help get yourself back on track. I hope you're able to find a nice balance between health and loved ones!!
