I have been excessively busy, these past couple of months, which has caused my blog to suffer for it. I probably should add, stressful busy. I had a lot of things to do, and I kept getting behind. I do not have any finger or toe nails left. They have been clipped or chewed down. The one good challenge I had, during this process, was not to gain any weight, even if I didn’t lose. Up until a few days ago, I had done just that, but in the past few days, since I’ve completed my assignments and classes, I have gained 2 lbs. I am still not disappointed about that; although, I need to get it back under control. We haven’t been doing our daily walks either.
The challenge is that even in this bit of time, I have gotten lazy with the idea of going out and walking, and paying attention to what I eat. I have put regular sugar on my cereal. I have eaten chicken, with the skin. After only getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep, and still putting dinner on the table for my family, I just didn’t want to make the extra effort, however miniscule. It was just easy to not make the effort. Too easy! This all means that I must start all over again.
Is this what happens, when we fail on our ‘diets’ or weight loss journeys? We get distracted, on other tasks, and then all is out of the door. Fat is too easy, I think. This goes to show that my health has to always stay in the forefront of my mind, regardless of the situation. Since, I am aware when this type of stress begins to build, maybe I need to write out a schedule to keep me on track, so that I don’t become overwhelmed and lackluster.
1. Get daughter up
2. Bath daughter
3. Make breakfast
4. Perfect time for a quick walk, with baby!!!!!
That’s easy enough, right? I can’t give up. I have done so well. I can’t allow myself to become overwhelmed. I have to keep focusing on the prize at the end. Also, more exercise means more energy!! More energy means I can get things done more quickly and efficiently! I can do this! I can do this!
