It’s a late State of the Weight, but better late than never, right? Right.
If you’re just tuning in, State of the Weight is about more than just the number on the scale. It’s about making small, easy changes you can live with.
Y’all. This week.
I was jazzed after last week’s SOTWW check-in. Totally pumped to hit the gym and be awesome and lose a couple more pounds because I am so close to my goal!!!
And then life happened.
I did yoga on Wednesday and cardio on Thursday. My plan was to take Friday off from the gym since we were going to visit Dan’s parents to hit up a local festival. I watched what I ate during the day so I wouldn’t overdo it that night. And I didn’t. Then Saturday was my mom’s birthday, so we headed up there to go out to dinner with her.
And then we got home and Emma was running a fever and as soon as I gave her some Motrin she puked all over the both of us.
Then Dan had to work on Sunday and since Emma was sick, I couldn’t take the kids to the gym. And then Joshua climbed in bed with me Monday morning and puked all over me. So no taking him to the gym that day either. Or on Tuesday because he was still running a fever.
Could I have gone to the gym in the evening on Sunday and Monday and Tuesday? Yes. Absolutely. But by the time the evening rolled around and Dan was home, I was exhausted. Just wiped out and wanting nothing more than to get in the bed and pass out not knowing how the night would go or whether or not I would need to change a set of sheets and how many times and are the back-ups all clean?
I know when I like to go to the gym and I know that when fall TV starts up again, going in the evenings will not happen. It can’t. So when I can’t go when I like to go I don’t go.
(Completely not sure this is related to what I was saying, but I have a wicked awful case of brower tab ADD right now and I just read this post about “Fitspiration” gone wrong and I really liked it and I’m leaving it here for you guys, too.)
I made a plan last week and didn’t stick to it. I’m getting really kind of awful about sticking to a plan. I really wish a personal trainer were in the budget right now, but since that’s not an option, I’ve got to figure something else out.
I don’t exactly know how to make myself go to the gym when I physically cannot go there, either because I’m exhausted, it’s dinner time and someone has to feed the children, they are sick, I am sick. I don’t know.
Also still 196 pounds.
Weekly Goal: Do whatever it is I think I can do
Weight Goal: Still 7 pounds to go to reach 31 pounds gone.
