I don’t normally dislike Mondays, and I’m not disliking it today either…However, I was so tired this morning that I actually went back to sleep after taking the kids to school. I curled up on the couch with a blanket, turned on an Adventures in Odyssey kid story and dozed. Since I woke up an hour and a half later I know I needed the extra rest. This weekend must’ve really wore me out.
I’m sharing all that to say that I slept through my workout time and now I’m not sure if I’ll get it in today as I have a busy day ahead.
Of course, all I can think is “the challenge” …darn it.
Oh well. It’s only Monday, and I needed rest, so we’ll see what happens the rest of the week. When I posted Friday with the challenge and my exercise plans I didn’t count on something that came up for today through Wednesday, so this week I may not make it all four days.
I feel better just getting that out. Thank you.
Now on to some motivation…since my sister-in-law has been staying with us there has been a phrase that shows me I have changed and am still changing with regards to my food.
When I serve myself a smaller portion at a meal (like the half tuna melt I had Saturday while everyone else ate whole sandwiches), or I choose to put my meal over a salad instead of with rice she’ll say something like, “Is that all you’re eating?” or “You’re having a salad??”
Some might see this as negative talk, but I don’t. My sister-in-law wants to lose some weight she’s put on in recent years, so when I make a lighter choice she’s like “Aw man!! I should be doing that.” I usually shrug and just keep going, or smile and let her know I ate half the sandwich because I was having two deviled eggs with the meal, etc.
But I’m always a bit tickled that she would notice and it reminds me that I am changing.
There are still times when we eat ice cream, etc. and I know that needs to be less than it has been lately; but there’s more times when I’m eating less food, or healthier food and it’s just who I am now.
Praise the Lord for His help in changing. I find it very hard the older I get! Oy Veh! I'm so proud of all the changes my little girl has had (okay, my oldest child? my big girl?). You're doing very well! love you mucho!
I love the fact that you are positively influencing your family and your friends!
