Wow, what a day.  Sometimes my emotions really get the best of me.  Today was one of those days.  In a nut shell, about 6 weeks ago, I screwed something up.  In the scheme of  life, it’s not that big of a deal, but today, I was blind-sided having that mistake come back to haunt me.  The details are no longer important, but the thoughts that came from today are.

Everyone makes mistakes.  It’s part of life.  Forgiving and moving on are also part of life.  The sooner and easier you can pick up and move on, the better.  Tomorrow is a new day.

Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed by my schedule, house, kids, and weight.  The funny thing is that I’m the one with the ability to make my schedule (within reason), manage the house (with lots of teamwork) and choose what to eat.  The kids, well, they are kids and usually they are happily persuaded to go with the flow of the day.

So, I’m making a few changes.  I’m not going to do the c25k at this time.  I will do it at some point, but I think the runs are hard on me at this weight and the scheduling is tough.  I can’t really fit them in without adding them to a workout or replacing something else.  When I add them to a workout, I’m overly tired and stiff/sore and when I replace them with another workout, I’m unhappy because I give up something I like.  At this point, I hate running.  I hope that I won’t always hate it, but right now I do, and it’s not a good use of my time.  I need to be happy when I exercise.

I’m going to give Weight Watchers a break.  I still think it’s important to eat more veggies and take off weight, but my focus needs to be on shopping/cooking/chopping and not dragging my kids to a Weight Watcher meeting that I don’t usually get to hear much of.  I love Weight Watchers, but I need a break.

My husband and I need to make a plan for the house.  A projects list and cleaning schedule of sorts is needed with a few realistic goals.  I think a few trash bags or donation boxes will help as well.

So, for the next 2 weeks, I am going to really focus on taking care of me and getting my “house” in order.  Hopefully, by the end of the month, things will be in better shape and better weather will join us too.

On the exercise front, I did 15 min on the treadmill at the J.  It wasn’t much, but it was a nice stretch.

Next up: afternoon BOSU Sculpt class with a friend.

I’ve decided to give Weight Watchers a break.  I still think a food log is important, but I’m not going to stress over points.  I can tell if it was a good day or not and so can my readers.  (Hint: enough fruit and veggies or not)

1/2c oatmeal, pear, cinnamon, peanut butter
Morning Snack
