Mamavation Monday

I had an okay week. Unfortunately, I didn't make any progress on the scale. I know why though. I haven't tracked what I have eaten in well over a week. I have still tried to make good decisions, but like yesterday, I filled over 1/2 my plate with salad at a lunch meeting, but then, when I wanted two slices of pizza, I stacked them to make them fit. Good intentions, but not necessarily a good outcome.

It has been cold out. That hasn't stopped me from working out. Unfortunately, it has been dark out. This has had a bigger impact. I am starting my run much later now than I used to. This means that I have less available time in which to run. It also means that I have gotten lazy on the mornings where I can't run and I am lucky to fit in one or two 10 minute DVDs. I am hopeful that Daylight Savings ending will be a good thing for me.

I also haven't been to the track in a while. All that darkness and no one around makes me too nervous. Again, perhaps when we "fall back" this weekend, I will be able to get there. I tried to go to the indoor track last week and the doors were locked. I called the Y, but I haven't heard back. So, I still don't know when I would be able to run there.

I need to come up with a new game plan for Sunday too. Used to be I could get up leisurely and go for a run before church. Now, my husband plays basketball, so I can't head out for a run - unless I get up real early. Once I'm ready for the day, I just don't see myself changing back for a run. Maybe I can do an evening thing or, once my basement is back together, I could do a DVD on Sunday mornings. Losing a day a week of exercise certainly has some impact.

Here's looking forward to a better week!

Balancing yourself and your family is so hard. So often we skip over ourselves in favor of everyone else. Keep on trying to find that balance. Sounds like you're on the right track.

Hope this week is going better for you - I would opt for the early morning run, but that's because running makes me feel better than anything else. The DVDs is always a good idea :)
