random disorganized day :(

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I planned to run this morning but 8 kids in the house made that on the impossible list. I did however make it to church and did 3 of the 28 day challenge videos. I have missed a few days so it was nice to do them back to back and catch up. I then thought if I took all the kids to the park I could run and they could play but, that as fairly impossible. I made about 15 minutes into the week 4 c25K and had to stop... it was 700 degrees and I had sweaty toddlers running all over. I came back, gave them a nap and did the Jillian Michaels shred instead.

And eating ?!? I have been eating but realizing my calories are pretty low, one day even just 1,000 calories. It isn't on purpose but life has been so crazy that its hard to get enough food in. I think that may be why I have stalled on weight loss actually, so today I made sure I ate a bit more and I think I went overboard LOL!

Sigh... this is a different phase... will take some time to figure out exercise with 5 kids under 12!!!

    5 under 12 -- yikes! Take good care of yourself. If anyone can figure out a way, I think a mom of so many can do it!!

    What matters is you did something. Always focus on what you CAN do. Don't look back at what you did not or could not accomplish. You certainly have a full house and a full plate. I think you're doing amazingly well. ~~ Barbara

    Great post! Nice accomplishments. I agree with everyone who has posted....you did a great job considering. Instead of using all of it as an excuse to not do it at all you kept trying and trying and look at how much you did get in. Maybe you won't get to have even 20 minutes to workout for days on end, but what you do in a minute - wall push up, squats for a minute, running in place, stretching, etc. 100's of times a day will certain help! That's like keeping your heart rate more elevated all day that you would have doing nothing. You'll find a way to make it work for you, because that's the only way. =) Good work! =)

    You did amazing considering. I don't have any kids at home and sometimes I find it hard to accomplish what I want. I have to make myself sometimes. I will keep you in my prayers. Keep trying!
