So this week I have only exercised twice and the rest of the week has been a lot of relaxing...sleeping late (from staying up late with DH on his nights off - he works nights and is on a different schedule), reading, light housework, hanging out. I have been calorie counting, and so I have continued to see weight loss. The thing is, I want to keep building muscle and to help myself lose the fat more quickly. I would LOVE to wear a couple of pairs of jeans that are tucked away in my closet. :o)
So, I need to get myself on a better schedule and make exercising a priority - because it isn't right now. There are things I love to do - my dance dvd, swimming, jogging, walking, and biking. Why am I not doing them? Not entirely sure. I laid in bed thinking about it all this morning and decided this was my week "off" and at least I exercised twice - both times were running! A year ago I would have been doing good to exercise twice in a month! So, Monday I will run at the beach since I will be there. Tuesday will be very busy because I will be at a nursing conference, but I will try to squeeze in a run or a walk too. Wednesday I will probably lift weights with my friend...then Wednesday night I can swim with my son. Thursday I will dance and swim. Friday I will run. Something like that anyhow. If I make it more of a priority during the week, then I can take Saturday and Sunday off and let my body have a rest, but still calorie count. It is hard on the nights my hubby is off...I want to stay up all hours of the night to spend time with him, but if I do that, I just have to force myself to still get up in the morning and then simply nap when my son naps. I can do this! I have to stop making excuses and get back to the point where I loved exercise! I can bust through this wall - I have done greater things than this!!!
