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!!!

    I know exactly how you feel. My hubby works late nights and sometimes I try to wait up for him to get home. Then I'm exhausted the next day. At least you exercised twice last week. Don't beat yourself up about it. You counted your calories so you didn't overeat. Even if you don't lose at least you won't gain. You'll do better this week. Sometimes it's good to slow down a little bit and relax.
