It's been a rough, tough, busy, stressful couple of weeks. I guess this marks the beginning of the holiday hub-bub, eh?
Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say I'm still alive and kicking....having challenges with my food DAILY, but still keep exercising. Thank GOD for that damn bike. I would have gained back some serious pounds.
A common issue for me lately....not making time for ME. While I've been exercising, the duration of said workouts have cut back considerably. On some days I'd been able to get in TWO workouts, well, a.m. free time has been gobbled up with errands and other obligations. I do not like it, but it's had to be that way. In reflecting on how I've been spending my time each day, I continue to see time is spent serving others.....my children, husband, friends in need, volunteer opportunities....leaving little time or energy for me. One of the things I love about being a SAHM is being available for my family and others....but it comes at a cost. I do for others during the day...then am too frazzled to do for myself by the end of the day.
I cannot be left simmering on the back burner. I must meet my needs first. I know it sounds selfish, but I need to do this right now before I back slide. No one can do this for me. I HOLD THE KEY to my success. I keep repeating that mantra....hoping it sticks in my mind before I make a bad choice in my day.
