Yesterday was a bust, but that was yesterday

Friday, July 03, 2009

Any of you who read my status yesterday saw that I was just crabby ALL day. It wasn't any one thing. It was really just one small thing on top of another. I have been doing so good with letting things slide, not use any excuses to get off track. But not yesterday. Despite the start to my day I had planned to get in my workout during the boys nap. But Nathan refused to sleep and kept requiring my attention and so I never got that time. I think that was the breaking point. From there, we decided to eat out for dinner and I way over did it. So no workout and too much food. Not a good combination. I am disappointed in myself for giving in to my mood. I have made a 30 day commitment to workout each day and not go over calories and I doubly ruined it yesterday on my two week mark. Despite that, I will not quit. I am taking all that I am feeling, disappointment especially, and using it to make today better. I decided to make up for yesterdays bootcamp which I just did, kids crawling around me and everything! I am also going to get in my 50 minutes of cardio and my regular bootcamp video for the day. I may not have exactly kept up with the terms of my self challenge but the way I look at it, I can let that get the best of me or I can learn from it and move on. Today is a new day, I plan to make the best of it. And I will finish out the last 2 weeks STRONG!

    Hey if you hadn't set those goals, you wouldn't have done what you have done the past two weeks. I often say to myself and others, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again! Sounds like you are Sparkling through today!

    You do realize you are human, right? We all slip up from time to time. I can tell you I am going to have to exercise twice as hard with the granddaughter here. She wants Grandma's Mac & cheese & of course I will make it for her and of course I will eat it too. The important thing is to try to get back on track. Remember the article, "two steps forward, one back".

    Don't be to hard on yourself, you just slipped up one out of 14 days isn't bad. I feel you on trying to get the exercise in with the kids crawling all over you-- yesterday when I did my strength training the kids thought it was great that I was on the floor and all of them kept trying to climb on me, or sit on me. It was only day two of strength training so I wasn't feeling like I could handle double the load-- but I still managed to get it in-- it just tool alot longer.

    HOpe you have a great weekend- we will be gone till late sunday!
