Life Relapse

I could blame my lack of fitness, healthy eating, organization, and motivation on a whole slew of things.  I have two kids. My husbands commute time is 15 hours a week.  I work full time. But, the reality is, I just fell off the wagon.  I stopped waking up at 4:45am because my kids don’t sleep through the night.  I stopped packing my lunch and prepping my meals for the week.  I just stopped caring.

Eventually, I hit a wall.  I started getting extremely frustrated with myself and my control with sugar. I was missing running.  Even running on my treadmill <gasp>.  My life was not in order and routines were missing to make things feel like they were running smoothly.

It was about two weeks ago when I swore to myself I was going to get up 3 days that week to walk/jog on the treadmill in my basement.  I was successful.  Then I made it another week and my walking was slowly decreasing and my running was slowly increasing.  I was getting back into my game.  I started back with my morning routine of quick kitchen clean up before leaving the house.  I started a routine for sweeping/mopping and vacuuming my floors.  I started a new bedtime routine to help the kids have a better rest and less frustration for mom and dad. I was BACK!

With each success added back into my routine, the better things were running day to day.  I was becoming less and less frustrated with how things in my life were moving.  I no longer felt like I was being tackled by a 350 lbs. lineman.  I was inching up the field.  There is still a long way to go to getting back to where I want to be with my health and fitness.  But I’ve started the process and am more determined than ever.

As always, be confident, be fit, be you!
