A Check In
It's about 10pm and I'm minutes away from going into a temporary coma... and after having a productive weekend and a very productive day - I'm pooped. But I wanted to write this post, and check in with you, my dear readers... So here goes with a brain fart from the neurons of DubyaWife...
I haven't exercised in a good while and while I feel guilty about it... it's mostly that I haven't been consistent about it. And I know it needs to change, so hopefully with some pre-planning I'll wake up and use my elliptical for the first time in my new house.
Yes, for those of you who didn't know... in February I got a new job, my daughter changed schools... and in May I moved into a new house. Thus far 2012 has proven to be quite the challenge.
Right now I could use a little stability.
My new yard is enormous which meant this past weekend Dubya and I spent hours tending to it. Being outside in heat of Louisiana during June is what I imagine hell feels like. Smoldering and suffocating. Yuck!
I haven't been to the gym and my awesome "crossfit"ish class in weeks - and i miss it.
The good news is, despite my lack of exercising, I have been controlling my eating for the past two weeks. Since I've gotten my new kitchen in order I've been able to stick to fresh veggie salads and fruit for snacks and Chobani. (I'll have to write up a blog post on some of my favorites recently.)
Now that things are calming down with new job and new house, I feel like I can breathe a bit better and start focusing on the things that really make me happy. Blogging, SoMe (social media), exercise, and eating healthy.
Right now I'm hovering in the 193 area... sadly. And the size 14s I purchased a few months back are now too tight and I'm back in the 16s. Boo.
But I'm resolute to not let it get me down or obsess.
I know that deep down when I have consistent exercise routine and healthy eating, my whole life seems to brighten up and become even better and more awesome than it already is.
So now it's 10:15 and I'm ready to sleep and try to start the morning with a good workout.
Think I can do it?
Let's see if I can start over with just a Day 1. I've done it before, I can do it again.
Get Mean. Make a Decision. Choose Health!
