Crazy week ahead!!

I have a big week ahead. I have today and tomorrow off and in that amount of time I will need to get my house cleaned up. I want to get everything looking decent. We leave for vacation on Saturday and there will be a variety of friends in and out of the house while we are gone and I want it to be nice for them.

Wednesday and Thursday I work two 12 hour days. It will go fast, but that leaves little time to get things done.

Friday my daughter and I have appointments for nails and hair and a few things to pick up before we go. Then I have to come home and pack. This is no easy feat. I will be packing for myself and my husband. I really don’t trust him I am afraid to say. I actually had to beg him just to get a couple new shirts and honestly, that isn’t enough. He could care less about the way he looks. My Son will get help from my daughter who I completely trust. She has done enough vacations that she knows what to do. Still, it’s a lot of work. Considering the fact that I haven’t in awhile and the last time I did, they didn’t have this whole liquids deal going on.

I look forward to vacations but there is also a lot of stress involved before hand. I am the one who makes all of the plans. It’s even more difficult when I am coordinating with my best friend who we are meeting there. I worry about the weather, hotel arrangements, car rental…all of it. I am a worry wart at heart. Once I am there, I have a good time though.

Better news, even though I am really unhappy with my weight and what I am looking like right now, I am making plans to get things under control when I come back from vacation. I have 4 personal training appointments set for once a week when I come back home. That will help me stay focused. I met with my personal trainer today and we will make a plan. She thinks I should be able to stick with it even on the days I work. I am making a commitment to it. Along with that comes the commitment to record my food intake. It’s the only thing that helps me lose weight.

One step at a time…vacation first and then working on my goals are next. I look forward to the next month and everything that will happen in it!

    Have a great vacation. We leave the following Friday for at least three weeks, I hate aa the work that getting ready entails. Thankfully mu hubby does his own packing, it's me--I over pack. When you get back, I hope you find yourself enjoying the workouts.

    Have fun on your vacation..and weed through the important/unimportant things on the list..and enjoy. Life is too short to worry about the little things.
